This Elderly Rohingya Woman Was Forced Out of Her Home Three Times

90-year-old SheGul Zahar fled Myanmar in August 2017 after her village was burnt down. Now she lives in a makeshift shelter in Bangladesh.

Gul was forced to flee her country in 1978 and again in 1991. This is her third time as a refugee!

Rohingya Muslims have endured decades of repression in Myanmar. Four generations of Gul’s family live in exile.

According to UNHCR, over 900,000 Rohingya have sought refuge in Bangladesh since October 2016 .
