There are some 150,000 refugees in Malaysia. The majority of refugees are from Myanmar, of whom 56,000 are ethnic Rohingya. Some 35,144 are children below the age of 18, and many experience the kind of story being told through Finding Home. The refugee story is often a deeply personal one, difficult to understand. Behind the statistics and the politics of any refugee crisis, are individual human beings with real stories of pain and fear, but also of hope and strength.
Finding Home allows people to walk a mile in a refugee’s shoes in order to understand what they go through every day in order to find safety.
Finding Home was constructed from a series of interviews with many refugee youths and adults in Malaysia to provide as real an insight as possible into the everyday challenges faced by refugees.
