Over the past few months, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people have fled from persecution in Myanmar, with many seeking refuge in neighboring Bangladesh.

Prior to the genocide in August 2017, there were an estimated 307,500 Rohingya refugees. That number has doubled over the course of a few months. Of those, children make up 54 percent of that population; women 52 percent.

Upon visiting the camp, in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), StepFeed met hundreds of children. To say they are beautiful souls with an enormous amount of hope is truly the understatement of the century.

A simple "As-salamu Alaykum" - an Arabic phrase translating to "may peace be unto you" - resulted in an ear-to-ear smile on the faces of these children. 

They, unlike their parents and grandparents, still have a bit of hope that things will change for them in the near future. They deserve every bit of that hope to materialize.
