However, while the rains came, delays caused by Covid-19 restrictions around the camp meant that their shelter never did. They are left fearing the cold winter ahead, while Monir and Khadija's children and grandchildren have nowhere to play, no school, no games.
Alimul Islam is Concern’s Programme Manager for Emergency Response in Bangladesh, and he describes the difficulty of helping families like these in the current climate.
"In the last number of months, we have continued to face a lot of problems,” he says. “There have been strict lockdowns and the people who are working here have faced some difficulties.
"We have trouble getting permission to go to the camps, and then we also face problems with the community mobilisation activities.
"Covid is another emergency within the emergency of what's already happening within the Rohingya community here. Our staff and volunteers who provide support, they really find it very hard and they become afraid.”
It is a fear shared by both emergency workers and the wider Rohingya community in the region, and tensions – exacerbated by the fire, Covid-19 and the recent monsoon season - are rising.
