Title:The Unexpected Friend – A Rohingya Children’s Story
Illustrator:Inshra Sakhawat Russell
Format:Hardback (USA) / Paperback (Bangladesh)
For ages:4 to 8 years
In the midst of a sprawling refugee camp in Bangladesh, Faisal, a young Rohingya boy, finds an injured bird and decides to take care of it with his sisters. Life in the camp is not always easy and the children are thrilled to have a pet to look after. But as the bird's wing slowly heals, they face the dilemma of holding on to or losing something they dearly love.
Thoughtfully illustrated with detailed imagery, The Unexpected Friend is a fictional story based on the real lives of Rohingya children living in the refugee camps of Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Their individual stories were compiled through the dedicated work of aid agencies Save the Children, Plan International and World Vision and transformed into a storybook in partnership with Guba Publishing, for the purpose of gifting it to the children in the camps.
The Rohingya are a Muslim minority of 1.3 million, formerly living in the Rakhine State within Myanmar. Risking death by sea or on foot, nearly 700,000 have fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine province of Myanmar (Burma) for neighboring Bangladesh since August 2017. Bangladesh now houses 1.1 million Rohingya refugees in the world’s largest refugee camp.
