A Rohingya girl looks away, towards the light, Balukhali camp, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh

As the light softly revealed her face in a dark room of her house, Haleda, a 16-year-old Rohingya girl, raised her skirt. She showed where the pain comes from. Haleda has been shot in the left leg and raped by the militia. The scar is too deep, too big for a young girl that she is. She will never walk again.

Bangladesh, August 2018
