Photo Story: The Drawing of a Rohingya Child

 

 

Story Behind the Photo

Monzur Ali's (11) family fled Myanmar after the military attacked their village. In the attack, two of his sisters were brutally killed. On arrival in Bangladesh, Monzur Ali's family sheltered in Balu-Khali Refugee Camp in the Cox's Bazar District. Shortly after his arrival, he started visiting a UNICEF supported Child Friendly Space (CFS) where children can play in a safe supervised environment. His drawings were of war, burning buildings and people being killed, including his sisters. Six months after his arrival Monzur Ali is still visiting the CFS almost daily. However, his drawings have now changed to beautiful scenes of his life in Myanmar. He says he is starting to forget the terrible things which happened in Myanmar.
