(COX’S BAZAR, OCTOBER 12, 2020)— Three Rohingya refugee Media Fellows at Fortify Rights have been documenting life inside the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Using photography and social media, the Media Fellows provide a unique window into everyday life for Rohingya refugees, all survivors of the ongoing genocide in Myanmar. In February 2020, Fortify Rights trained the Media Fellows on conducting interviews and creating character portraits for photography and films. The joint project between the Media Fellows, Fortify Rights, and Doha Debates was a finalist for the 2019 Shorty Awards. Check out the Media Fellows’ work on Instagram: @azimulhass@dilkayas, and @omalkha. Their recent posts have focused on the impact of COVID-19 on refugees and the situation inside the camps:
