Rohingya refugee Senuwara Begum, 16, rests at her family's makeshift shelter at Balukhali refugee camp near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, November 29, 2017. SSenuwara Begum lost her right leg after she got shot in the thigh, above the knee, when her village Shahab Bazar, in Maungdaw district, Myanmar, was attacked and burned to the ground by the Myanmar military at the end of August, her father, Sayedul Rahaman, says. Rahaman, a 60-year-old farmer, carried her on his back for six days to cross the Myanmar-Bangladesh border. “We could see dead bodies as we were running away. We were hiding in the bushes because we didn’t want the soldiers to find us, but I knew I had to rush if I wanted to save her life,” Rahaman says. He used natural remedies along the way to try to protect the wound, but it had gotten infected and doctors at a hospital in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, told them there was no other option but to amputate the leg. Senuwara was devastated. “She had come to terms with dying, but not living with one leg,” her father says. Rahaman is very concerned about his daughter’s future. “I don’t know what will become of her. Who’s going to marry a girl with only one leg? In a way, she’s half dead.” Picture taken November 29, 2017. REUTERS/Susana Vera
