When Rehena was only 2, her family fled from Myanmar, and when she was 14 she was married and a few years later gave birth to 6 children, The youngest, Anis, was deaf. She wanted Anis to live a normal life where he was able to take care of himself.
Rahena just wants her youngest son to be able to communicate and learn to take care of himself. She tried finding a school for deaf people, but they didn't accept Rohingya, which Anis was. When Anis was 11, they finally found him a school.
The reason Rahena's family fled was because in Myanmar, Rohingya were, and still are, persecuted, enslaved, and abused. Most of the Rohingya population have left Myanmar and found better places to live, with jobs, education, and a happier life.
Good job, Anis!
Life in Myanmar was cruel but also well organized. It had villages with houses all grouped together, most of them having porches for eating. The houses were all along a dirt path road, small gardens on the sides or in the backyard. But also, it was filled with diseases, like malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS becoming a problem.
When Rahena moved, she realized that in Malaysia there was no violence, persecution, abuse, her children got 9 full years of free education (6-18), and freedom to worship all.
The most important thing is that Ranhena found Anis a school and now he can communicate with his family and friends.
