Bangladesh: Rohingya Refugees: ROHINGYA_WEBSITE_09

Mothers hold photos of their missing sons in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh in 2015. In 2015 thousands of Rohingya landed on the shores of Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, many of them by way of Bangladesh. The Rohingya pay up to $2,000 to traffickers, and they sail out from Bangladesh's southern coastline on fishing boats to meet larger ships in the deep sea that will take them to Malaysia. They are frequently kidnapped and forced to work in labor camps or their families are extorted for ransoms they can’t pay.
