“When I was running to save my life, I fell in the river and was shot. I climbed out of the river and into the graveyard. And there was my sister ... I saw one of my sisters shot in the face. She had blood all over her face.” 12-year-old<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Rohingya</a> refugee Johura Begum lost 14 of her 16 family members when the military attacked her village in<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Rakhine</a> state,<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Myanmar</a>. The only other survivor was her 10-year-old brother. "The other kids are peaceful, that’s why they are playing. I’m not peaceful in my body and that’s why I can’t play." .

Following a concerted campaign of violence by the Myanmar army against the Rohingya in Rakhine State in August 2017, at least 700,000 Rohingya fled across the border into<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Bangladesh</a>. The mental and psychosocial impact of what they experienced, coupled with the difficult camp conditions and uncertainty for the future means many refugees face significant mental health issues.

“At 4am in the morning, the military came and surrounded the village. They took my four-year-old child from me and threw him in the fire. They also shot my husband in front of me in the yard of our house.” Rohima Khatun, a 25-year-old Rohingya refugee, fled her Rakhine village and arrived in Bangladesh in September 2017. “Every single moment I remember this and get emotional because I lost my neighbours, husband, child, relatives.” ____________
