>> Finding enough food to eat is a daily challenge for Janou. Since fleeing her home in Myanmar last month, she's been living off just rice and lentils. It's not enough to feed her husband and five children.>> If I could get two cups of rice for our children, then I can give about a handful of food to everyone.
But if we can't get rice and other relief goods, and my husband can't go out of the camp to work, we just have to survive with the little we have.>> Janou was one of over 600,000 Rohingya forced to live crammed into camps in Bangladesh after violent army clampdown, late August.
And in spite of a memorandum of understanding between Myanmar and Bangladesh on Friday, to start repatriation of the Rohingya, the numbers keep arriving. Unable to find work, Janou's husband, Nor Hashim, helps the family by collecting twigs and tree stumps to sell as firewood. Yet as more and more trees are cut down, Janou worries that this is a short-term solution.
Like thousands of others here, Janou and her husband, now rely on food aid to survive. People queue for hours just to get bag of rice or a jar of cooking oil. But for Janou and Nor, another meal for their children provides a moment of respite.
