Culture-Sensitive Washing Zone for Rohingya Refugee Women
" In most of the cases, women toilets or wash zones in the refugee camp are located in such a place that provides no privacy. We (girls and women) have to walk through several public areas surrounded by men to reach the toilets. Moreover, there are no covered washing and drying zones for feminine items. In many cases, men gather around women toilets at night time to play cards, since these spaces have lights outside. All these issues are forcing us to use bushes nearby our shelters to use as toilets instead of the actual toilets provided by authorities."
