Razia, Age unknown, not more than 7 I think. I was out for the Jum'a prayers today and did a u-turn on the way after I saw a small figure with a stick, limping and walking so slowly in the almost empty road, most people were inside the mosques by then.... She said a bus hit her and maimed her forever. And once again I must admit this happens a lot with me....she said she is from Cox's Bazaar which is not true and that I knew immediately as soon as I looked into her unbelievable eyes. I knew it straight away that she was Burmese, a Rohingya refugee. I really thought very hard about taking her home and giving her some food and clothings but then she was really scared and nervous....I had to let her go and its not such a nice feeling....
