The Rohingya people

ABOUT THE EVENT

Join us to learn about one the most significant refugees crises in history. The plight of the Rohingya people from Burma, who began fleeing Bangladesh in late 2017.

In 2018, with a population of over 850,000, Cox’s Bazar isn’t just the largest refugee camp in the world, it’s the largest refugee camp that’s ever existed. 

 

Jeremy Meltzer, founder of i=Change, with Samantha Mordech, visited Cox's Bazar as a guest of Plan International to meet survivors, hear their stories, their pain and their hope for the future.

 

Jeremy's documentary images convey their voices in ways only images can... Their eyes remind us. Their story could be ours, under only slightly different circumstances. 


Susanne Legena, CEO of Plan International will explore the origins of the Rohingya crisis, life in Cox's Bazar and the fundamental question for these people - what's next.
