Hakim - Bangladesh

“I came here 30 days ago, after eleven days of walking.”

“After I arrived here, I tried contacting my father who runs a shop in Myanmar but have not yet been able to reach him.” Hakim is one of thousands of people searching for loved ones they had to leave behind when they fled violence in Myanmar. Red Cross teams help people all over the world search for missing relatives.
