Topic: Health care for pregnant women in Rohingya camps
Translation summary: Dr. Mahjabin is a medical officer working with Rohingya patients. She said a pregnant woman who comes to a camp health facility typically would get an examination followed by monthly checkups. The woman would receive counseling and support for a normal delivery. If hers was a complicated pregnancy, and if her child was likely to be delivered by Caesarean section, she would be referred to a hospital.
Julakha, a 25-year-old living in Thaing Khali Camp 17, is four months pregnant. She said she’s getting all the medical support she needs, unlike when she lived in Myanmar.
Web extra: While medical care is available, most pregnant Rohingya refugees give birth in “unsafe and unsanitary bamboo shelters,” the aid group Save the Children reported last June. It found that three in four babies were born at home instead of at health facilities, putting mother and baby at increased risk.

Topic: Running independent shops within Kutupalong.
Translation summary: Among the small shops or stalls lining the streets of Kutupalong Camp 2W are those of Hamid Hussain and Mohammed Tayoub.
Hussain has operated his stall for at least six years, selling tea, breads, carrots, potatoes and homemade foods. He estimates he clears about 100 takas a day to help support his household of nine people. The 35-year-old came to Cox’s Bazar in 2012 after communal violence in Ruinggadaung, a village in Rakhine state, Myanmar, where he worked as a boatman. When he first arrived, he worked as a day laborer in the host community.
Tayoub opened his shop a year ago, selling water, soft drinks, biscuits, tobacco, betel and other miscellaneous items. The proceeds enable the 34-year-old and his seven family members to supplement their food rations. They came from Gufi village in Buthidaung, where Tayoub was a farmer.
