Ashakara was living in the village with her family. Her father was a respected person in the community.

Even though they have been living in the Rakhine state in Burma( Myanmar) for centuries but their family had never been provided citizenship, or any opportunities for education of children, assistance for food or access to medical and health related services.

One August night of 2017 Burmese Army raid Ashakara's village and tortured her father, raped her mother and killed her father in front of her.

Ashakara never forgot that horrific night. A trauma haunts her every day now, she often has nightmares.

Your sponsorship will heal her trauma, give her new hope of living. Be a part of her life.
