Mohammad is a 15 year-old Rohingya refugee. He is stateless.
He’s one of the 120,000 young people aged between 10 and 18 living in the Rohingya refugee camp at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border.
His family fled the bloody military-led massacre in Myanmar, which killed up to 10,000 people by December 2017.
With few opportunities to learn, and fearful of returning home to Myanmar, Mohammad has taken up casual work in a blacksmith workshop and was interviewed by AJ+ about growing up in a refugee camp.
This is his story.
