Hafsa, a young Rohingya girl, lives in a Bangladeshi refugee camp with her mother and little brother. Life isn't easy there, but they struggle by, with the help of kind neighbors and their mother's resourcefulness. One day, Hafsa finds her brother, Hafiz, playing with an old razor. The incident stirs up memories of her life in their homeland of Myanmar, where Hafsa used to play with safe, homemade toys. When Hafiz is curious to know about the home they had left behind, Hafsa and her mother share beautiful memories of their village and family life. Her mother also tells them a Rohingya folk tale about a king who possessed a magical ring that could grant any wishes. Though Hafsa is taken by the story and wishes she owned a magical ring to change their circumstances, it is her mother's love and their supportive community that gives her the most comfort.This story is part of The Asia Foundation's Gom Acho Collection.
