Cardinal Tagle visits Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh December 06, 2018

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle visited Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh on Dec. 3.

More than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims shelter in the camp, the largest of the 30 refugee shelters in Cox's Bazar.

Cardinal Tagle visited refugee families, aid workers including Caritas staff and government officials.

The Filipino cardinal also visited aid distribution points, child-friendly spaces and model houses set up by Caritas.

The Rohingya fled deadly persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine State in 2016 and 2017.

Cardinal Tagle is the president of Caritas Internationalis.

Caritas has operated in Kutupalong camp since the latest influx of Rohingya started arriving in August 2017.
