A tired man finding warmth and comfort

Five years ago, Abdur Rokim was already well into his 60s when his whole life was turned upside down by the Myanmar military. After a long period of uncertainty regarding his own life,he finally found a period of peace as a refugee in Bangladesh. Now living in Ukhiya, Abdur Rokimreminisces of a time before things changed so drastically.However, his spark of happiness has not been diminished at all. “I am grateful to you,” he said, “for always helping me. I have a house and a life because of you. Now winter will be easier because of you.” Next year, he will turn 70, but he will continue to stand tall despite all the difficulties that life will throw his way.
