Thousands of Rohingya who were uprooted from their homes are forced to beg for food and live in deplorable conditions because they are not receiving international aid.

A disturbing report out of Burma shows that many Rohingya are not being officially registered by the government as official "internally displaced persons," which means they are not able to get food or shelter.

Oddny Gumaer, with Partners Relief and Development, said conditions in some area are akin to concentration camps.

“What most of the world is not aware of are the refugees that are not living in [registered] camps,” Gumaer said. “And those people are living in conditions that are so bad that I’m sure if the international community doesn't do something very soon they are going to die.”
