Setara Begum, 12, was among nine siblings in their home in Maungdaw when it was hit by a rocket.
"I saved eight of my nine children from the burning house, but Setara was trapped inside," said her mother, Arafa.
"I could see her crying in the middle of the fire, but it was difficult to save her. By the time we could reach her, she was badly burned," Arafa said.
Setara's father carried her for two days to Bangladesh. The young girl received no treatment for the severe burns to her feet. Her feet healed. But she has no toes.
The trauma has scarred her psychologically. "She has been mute from that day, and doesn't speak to anyone," her mother said. "She only cries silently."
