Bangladesh, May 2018 | @haileycsadler .
Amina sits with her son, Jamir (age 3), outside of the makeshift bamboo shelter where they are living as refugees in Kutupalang Refugee Camp, outside Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. Amina’s story and the brief time I spent with her touched me deeply, and is published on @unearthwomen.
Since August 2017, over 900,000 Rohingya have fled here to escape a brutal ethnic cleansing being carried out by Myanmar’s military. It is now the largest and most densely populated refugee camp in the world.
On October 24, 2018, the head of the U.N. Fact Finding Mission on Myanmar reported to the U.N. Security Council that the situation in Myanmar constitutes “an ongoing genocide that is taking place at the moment,” with up to 400,000 Rohingya who remain there facing severe repression. The future for the Rohingya refugees who fled to Bangladesh to escape the violence remains unclear.
Hi everyone — I’m Hailey (@haileycsadler) and I’m an independent photojournalist and documentary photographer based out of Washington, D.C. My work focuses on the human toll of conflict, and I’ll be taking over this week to put individual faces and stories to the refugee crises that are impacting millions of families worldwide.▪️
