Ajida was forced to flee to Bangladesh when violence broke out in Myanmar. 9 months pregnant, she gave birth along the way. “It was very difficult for me as there were no doctors or midwives to help me and there were no cloths to put on the floor. There was no water. It was very difficult for me.”

Sadly, her story is not uncommon. Many women are giving birth without access to trained birth attendants on the way to Bangladesh and in unsanitary conditions in the camp.

At nine months pregnant Ajida’s worst nightmare came true; her home was burned, she was forced to flee to Bangladesh and on the way she went into labour. With no medical assistance, the birth left Ajida with a lot of pain and she had to be carried for the rest of the journey. “I don’t know who carried my new baby as I was being carried myself as I was in so much pain.”

24,000 women are currently pregnant in the camps in Bangladesh and will need maternity care. Donate now to provide medical care for expecting women, new mothers and newborn their babies http://bit.ly/2yq1qh7

“It’s a long walk to the jungle. Some men who pass by throw mud at us to harass and humiliate us,” said Somsida. Being able to use a toilet safely and with dignity is a daily challenge for many girls who fled violence in Myanmar.

DEC charities are helping vulnerable girls access toilets safely. This International Day of the Girl Child, please donate to help them do so much more http://bit.ly/2yq1qh7
