The Rohingya are a largely Muslim ethnic minority from the Rakhine state in Myanmar (formally Burma). They're also known as the most persecuted people in the world.
When a new law stripped 1 million Rohingya of citizenship in 1982, they became stateless and rightless. They have no access to healthcare or education, they have no passports or formal ID, the government restricts their freedom to marry and their travel outside the Rakhine state.
Civilian, police, and army violence against them took a turn for the worse in 2012. By 2017, the world had witnessed the mass exodus of over 1 million Rohingya to neighbouring Bangladesh in the space of a few short weeks.
Rohingya refugees managed to escape what the UN describes as a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing", but now they find themselves without food, shelter, healthcare, and water.
After surviving one of the worst crises of modern history, men, women, and children now face the possibility of starvation.
