Umme Salima (14)
Father Abdul Amin, Salima is the oldest among 3 daughters.
Umme Salima is a 15-year old Rohingya refugee child who is at risk of child marriage. She lost her way and got separated from her family while fleeing military attack at her home in Myanmar. Another Rohingya family sheltered her and she briefly stayed with them in Cox’s Bazar town before the law enforcement agencies brought them to the refugee camps. She has been reunited with her family but due to social pressure, her parents are considering to marry her off. UNICEF supported volunteers are working with her and her family to discourage child marriage and encouraging her to attend adolescent clubs to learn about life-saving information.
