After facing persecution in the Buddhist-majority state of Myanmar, around 6,000 refugees--often referred to as the "people of nowhere"--have settled in Jammu. When the weather allows, they work on construction sites, collect scrap, and sell vegetables and fruits to make ends meet for their families. In winter, though, the refugees face severe unemployment, making life even harder.
