Blessed day to you all. My name is Wahkau Seng Nu Ja and I live in Laiza. Now in our Kachin region, the brutal army is destroying our children’s hopes in pieces and we are always scared and living in fear because of the sudden bombs that drop upon our homes at any time. We do not have the freedom like we had before the war broke out. That is why I miss my home so much. I really wanted to go home. As I am passing days with sorrowful tears, the Covid 19 epidemic has made it even worse and it seems as if there is no way to survive in the pitch darkness. The painting depicts my indescribable feelings. I hope everyone will appreciate and support my paintings. I always wanted to be a professional fashion designer. Thank you all so much.
