Malaysia’s Rohingya Women develop network to empower

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – The Rohingya community in Malaysia is trying to help fellow Rohingya who’ve recently fled their homes in Myanmar to live in refugee camps in Bangladesh.

The Rohingya in Malaysia view themselves as the lucky ones. They’re viewed as illegal migrants, not refugees, but they’re essentially allowed to contribute to society and earn an income — illegally.

This allows them — especially women — to send aid to women and children now living in Bangladesh’s camps. This story aired on CBC The World this Weekend Saturday, December 2, 2017.
