The refugee story is often a deeply personal one, difficult to understand. Behind the statistics and the politics of any refugee crisis, are individual human beings with real stories of pain and fear, but also of hope and strength.
Finding Home allows people to walk a mile in a refugee’s shoes in order to understand what they go through every day in order to find safety.
This is the story of Kathijah, a 16-year old Rohingya refugee forced to flee to Malaysia with her brother Ishak in order to find safety. She has no legal status, no support, no security. Just this phone.
Now her fight for survival, is yours.
