tal camp

these photos were taken by our log at 'tal camp', just two weeks ago - the morning after being battered by the winds and tides of a nearby cyclone.

these photos were taken by our log at 'tal camp', just two weeks ago - the morning after being battered by the winds and tides of a nearby cyclone.

this makeshift camp (it is not an official refugee camp) is situated between the highway from teknaf to cox bazaar and the river Naf (you can just see the highway on the right hand side of the picture below)

the camp occupies an area that is 800 metres long and between 50 and 30 metres wide

at least 7500 people live here

since the storm we've been trying to repair the latrines that we built a few months back that were destroyed (and flooded) in the storm.

we also run a basic health care clinic and a feeding centre for tal and surrounding residents with an average of 100 consultations a day at the clinic.  over 40 children per day attend the theraputic feeding centre.

this is tal camp.
