These Refugee Women From Myanmar Are Now Crime-Fighters In Delhi!

In addition to that, it hosts a large population of refugees and immigrants from neighbouring countries, who flee persecution in their own nations and hope to build a better life here. Unfortunately, many times they become even easier targets for abuse.
