Three Times a Refugee

Three Times a Refugee

90-year-old Gul Zahar has experienced exile three times in her lifetime. Originally from Myanmar, she is a Rohingya Muslim who has lived the realities of repression, fleeing first in 1978, then again in 1991, and once more in August 2017, after her home village was burnt down. She now lives in the giant Kutupalong refugee site, in Bangladesh, which houses close to 600,000 Rohingya refugees, like her. It is now the largest refugee site in the world. Although frail and with failing eyesight, Gul keeps active helping with daily chores in her tent, which she shares with nine other family members. Gul still holds onto the hope of going back to her land.
