Dhar is among the hundreds of Rohingya hindus who fled their villages after attacks by muslim masked men.

Health concerns are rapidly rising as monsoon rains increase risk of disease
Poor access to clean drinking water and basic health services, in addition to the monsoon rains, means that there is an increased risk of water-borne diseases such as cholera in their camp.
Such an outbreak could spread rapidly through crowded Chicken Farm where Hindu Rohingya sheltered and informal settlements.
