Horrors I will Never Forget: The stories of Rohingya children

Since 25 August 2017, Bangladesh has seen an unprecedented arrival of Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Those who have fled speak of seeing children targeted for brutal sexual violence, and killed and maimed indiscriminately. Others have told of their children being abducted, or of living in fear of their children being taken away.

This collection of testimonies paints a disturbing picture of the horrors that children have been through. They have seen and experienced things that no child should ever see, and many are deeply traumatised as a result. Save the Children has published this report so that the voices of child victims of the violence in Myanmar can be heard. 

Urgent action is needed, and this report presents a set of recommendations for steps that must be taken.

Now is the time to listen and to act.

 

Warning: This report contains content relating to violence against children and adults, including sexual violence, that some readers may find distressing.
