refugees

pi phiar vang is a burmese refugee living in delhi…

she escaped from burma into india after taking part in the ’88 democracy uprising…

her house is a room that measures a few square meters…

she lives with a family of seven…

she has also been suffering from a TB for the past 20 years…

this has now exacerbated a breathing problem and a lung infection…

refugees need a unhcr certificate to access basic health and education facilities…

…pi phiar vang has been denied her certification because her ‘story lacks credibility’
