Dubbed as “boat people” by international media, the Rohingya people are actually members of Muslim community from Burma’s Rakhine State. Rohingyas have been declared as state-less people by Burmese government while persecution by local authorities and communal oppression has forced them to leave their homeland. According to an estimate, thousands of Rohingya have migrated to neighboring countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Bangladesh. But still over 140,000 Rohingya people remain confined in IDP camps in Myanmar/Burma.
To migrate from Burma, Rohingya people brave to cross the sea using small rickety boats and many of them die before reaching their destination. Those who are lucky enough to cross the sea are either detained by the border forces or moved to refugee camps where the sufferings never end. They are deprived of food, medicine, shelter, clean water and other basic facilities, and await support from different welfare organizations.
