You have recently fled genocide in Myanmar and are now living in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. You may be young or old, a man or a woman, a boy or a girl. You see the tall barbed wire fence put up right next to your shelter, causing divisions in the camp and forming a barrier with the outside world. The health centre is now a long walk away.


Use your creativity to express your feelings. It can be in any form, such as a painting or drawing, a song, a poem or a blog post. You can use any medium. Post your artwork to social media using the #RemoveTheFence tag and a link to our campaign website
