A Rohingya Refugee in Bangladesh: Nur Bahar

May 2018

Nur Bahar and her two children spent 11 days crossing hills and river in Myanmar before they reached the border with Bangladesh. Her husband died 10 years ago from a disease. Currently residing in Kutupalong camp, she plants with the seeds, spade and water pot she received thanks to FAO's project. She witnessed armed men abducted, shot, slaughtered, and killed people in Myanmar – the dreadful memories often come back when she goes to sleep. Like many refugees, Nur Bahar finds safe haven in Bangladesh. Yet she misses her home and she hopes she could return home one day.
