PROJECT COMPASSION 2021 : WEEK FIVE
BANGLADESH – Halima is raising her two children in a refugee camp in Bangladesh while caring for her mother, who has a disability. Widowed at 21, Halima fled violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State and arrived at the camp with nothing. Caritas Australia, through Caritas Bangladesh, helped Halima out with shelter, cooking equipment, hygiene and sanitation training. Halima now earns a small income as a trainer, helping to maintain the health and cleanliness of her community. Halima aspired to ‘Be More’.
