Daw Saw Nu’s house was battered by the heavy rains and 280km/h winds of Mocha, a category-five cyclone making landfall in Myanmar in mid-May, the largest of its kind to hit Rakhine state and the northwest of the country in over a decade.

The impermanence of the fragile bamboo structure she lives in now belies the decade she has spent in the camp.
