  • The pain of the Rohingyas

    April 22, 2016

    Poverty, unemployment, and restrictions on movement have made malnutrition, tuberculosis and other diseases steadily worsen for the Rohingya, who only have access to one clinic to serve the medical needs in the refugee camp in Sittwe, Myanmar. The That Kay Pyin clinic is the only permanent medical facility operating in the camp. The two Myanmar government doctors who work there can only serve their patients' most basic needs, but carry out their work in the face of insurmountable odds. In this series, photojournalist Adryel Talamantes offers a glimpse into the life of the Rohingya.
