“A refugee is that person who has lost everything in his life. But he hasn’t given up his hope.” Compelling words from a man who lived over 17 years in a refugee camp in Nepal. Mani and his family escaped to the camp from Buddhist Bhutan where they were being persecuted as Christians. As a refugee in the United States, a “big country” he had never heard of as a child, he finds new hope helping other refugees navigate the challenges of life in America.
Watch “Navigating Hope”, directed by NIRV filmmaker and Afghan refugee Sayed Hashimi.
