Nobi, 42 – Testimony of Rohingya
As I walked with him through the camp, we could hear the residents call: “Nobi vai!” (Brother Nobi!). Nobi is undoubtedly very popular in the area. As a leader among Doctors of the World’s volunteers, he is also a major pillar in community work. Nevertheless, his gestures and words are humble, smart, and calm. He discusses quietly about the need for a clinic for the inhabitants, but then he wells up as he starts to talk about his 2-year-old son. Being a father, a community leader, and a community worker is a heavy burden. His warm human nature feels like a healing energy for the inhabitants of the camp wh...
