Kaygan reported that nearly 10.000 children became orphans due to the conflicts. He also reported that among 250.000 children who had to immigrate to Bangladesh, 500 were without parents. Kaygan said: “Unfortunately, many of these children had to witness their own mothers and fathers to be martyred”.

After reporting that almost all of the newly arrived children in Bangladesh has either physical scars in their bodies or psychologically crushed, Kaygan finished his statements by saying:

“In the new Putibunia camp in Teknaf, 85% of the kids are sick. The medical staff in the camp says that there are so many ill children so that they cannot even record their names. Flu, pneumonia, diarrhea and some other water-related diseases are quite widespread in the region”
