Five years later, 13 year old Hasson, who remains in a refugee camp in Bangladesh, has taken up a camera himself.
While he writes, draws and communicates in sign language, he says his favourite mode of expression is photography.
This heartbreaking image by @kevinfrayer helped capture the world's attention on the devastating plight of the Rohingya who were forced to flee Myanmar.
The world didn't know at the time, the 8 year old boy at the centre of this photo, Hasson, is deaf.
Displacement has a devastating impact on people with disabilities who are forced to flee, including those who are deaf. They often face greater risks, discrimination and challenges in accessing services, protection and their rights.
There are more than 10 million refugee children of school age, yet many do not have access to a full quality education.
The UN Refugee Agency's education report paints the clearest picture yet of the dire state of refugee education:
Global support and solidarity is urgently needed for #Pakistan. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the extreme flooding and 1,100 lives have been lost so far. Millions need aid.
The UN will support the govt-led response, seeking $160M to help in the worst-affected areas https://t.co/t0EEhMgapY
5 years ago, 700,000 Rohingya children, women and men fled Myanmar to Bangladesh.
Stateless and displaced, their plight must not be forgotten. The Rohingya and their host communities must be supported until they are able to return home in safety. https://t.co/TQDkpKea44
Today on #WorldHumanitarianDay, we pay tribute to all humanitarians and honour their life-saving work, especially those who have lost their lives or were injured in the course of duty. https://t.co/QZ0vVG2hxK
