Why We Speak: Celebrating Imran Mohammad
Imran and Azimah, wedding day
The genocidal attacks on the Rohingya people of Myanmar began in August of 2017, and has resulted in the deaths of thousands of men, women and children. The United Nations estimates that approximately 700,000 people were forced to flee the country for safety, and many survivors still live in horrific conditions in camps in Bangladesh. At 3 Generations, we work to bring attention to the devastating effects of this ongoing refugee crisis, as well as support the lives and stories of refugees.
In our shirt film, A Refugee’s Journey, Imran Mohammad, detailed his personal 7 year journey, over 14,217 miles, across continents, that finally led him to make his home in Chicago, IL. His is a story of courage in the face of tragedy. At 3 Generations, we are thrilled to share the progress and achievements that Imran, a Rohingya refugee and member of our advisory board, shares with us as he celebrates his recent marriage.
“Thank you Azimah for choosing me as your life partner. I know you are a strong woman and your education in healthcare and passion for helping Rohingya women will be a blessing to our Rohingya community. I am blessed to have you as my wife. We have a long life ahead of us and I am sure we will grow together and become a strong voice for our people here in the U.S. and other places around the world.”
3 Generations continues to tell the stories of the plight of refugees around the world, making certain that their struggles are documented and borne witness to.
