Details

Burmese refugees and asylum seekers in Delhi are confronted with many difficulties ranging from unemployment, difficult access to education to inadequate health care and challenges with local integration. The project aims to capture these issues through a documentary video created by the Chin Refugee Committee. The video aims to highlight the situation of the Burmese refugees in India since very little attention has been given to this group so far in the international community.                                            

You can contribute to the making of the documentary film including costs for filming, editing, and logistical arrangements such as the transportation of the film crew.
