Shabnam Mayet is an Advocate of the High Court South Africa. She is the organiser of “Protect The Rohingya” - a South African organisation that raises awareness about Rohingya issues though media campaigns. Every June 13, Protect the Rohingya organises a wear #Black4Rohingya awareness day.
We invited Shabnam Mayet to submit some of her own images in support of the competition and to help build awareness. These do not form part of the competition.
"These are 4 photos I took at the start of December 2017 - It was my first visit to the camps and I thought that these female images showed the resilience and survival spirit of the Rohingya beautifully."
