Millions of people worldwide have been affected by the global refugee crisis. Here are some of their stories.
I have six children and 12 grandchildren. I need more grandchildren.
When you help a sick child get better, and you see a smile come back to a mother’s face, it is very rewarding.
Where God leads us, that is where we go.
Life is difficult, but our faith keeps us going
I want my children to grow up and become good human beings.
My dream is to go to nursing school and become a nurse one day. I get a lot of satisfaction when I help people and see them get healthy.
Though life in Maungdaw was difficult, we had a family, a house, a small vegetable patch. There is no dignity living in a refugee camp. I spend all day finding things I can sell and the next, trying to sell the things that I find. But nobody here has any money to buy anything.
We like football but we’re not very good at it. There’s only one ball between all of us so we don’t get a lot of practice and we make the rules up as we go along. One day though, we’ll learn to play properly. One day, we’ll be the best team in the world!
When I grow up, I want to be a teacher. I am trying to learn everything, so that I can teach all the children at the camp everything they need to know.
I arrived in Leda Camp with my neighbours, after being separated from my parents. They helped me locate my grandfather, who had arrived the summer before. I spend most of my days pushing him around the camp, visiting his friends and listening to him complain. He complains a lot, but he’s all I’ve got.
