Jamila, 22, is a Rohingya woman living in the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh. She was forced to flee the armed conflict in Myanmar to save herself, her elderly mother and her eight-month-old baby.
With the support of Caritas Australia, through Caritas Bangladesh, Jamila was able to access emergency food and shelter. She also received counselling, emotional support, and learnt sewing skills to help her earn an income.
Jamila now feels less alone, with a sense of community around her.
She is able to ‘Be More’ to her little family. “Thank you, and thanks Caritas Australia,” Jamila says.
Please donate to Project Compassion 2021 to help mothers like Jamila be more for her family and her community.
