Image © 2014 Jack Kurtz || 07 NOVEMBER 2014 - SITTWE, RAKHINE, MYANMAR: SATA RA, 25, a Rohingya Muslim woman, in the doorway of her home. After sectarian violence devastated Rohingya communities and left hundreds of Rohingya dead in 2012, the government of Myanmar forced more than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims who used to live in and around Sittwe, Myanmar, into squalid Internal Displaced Persons camps. The government says the Rohingya are not Burmese citizens, that they are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. The Bangladesh government says the Rohingya are Burmese and the Rohingya insist that they have lived in Burma for generations. The camps are about 20 minutes from Sittwe but the Rohingya who live in the camps are not allowed to leave without government permission. They are not allowed to work outside the camps, they are not allowed to go to Sittwe to use the hospital, go to school or do business. The camps have no electricity. Water is delivered through community wells. There are small schools funded by NOGs in the camps and a few private clinics but medical care is costly and not reliable. PHOTO BY JACK KURTZ

Jack Kurtz's Message: I've been in Sittwe, Myanmar, photographing Rohingya Muslims forced out of their homes by the government of Myanmar.

The government considers them illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. The government of Bangladesh says they're Burmese (Myanmar) citizens. So more than 140,000 people languish is crowded, squalid camps.

I've relocated to Bangkok, Thailand. I'm working on stories and freelancing. If you need a photographer in Thailand, give me a shout.

Thanks for looking,

Jack
