Internally Displaced Persons (persecuted Karens from Myanmar)

The Karens are one of the major tribes of people in Myanmar. They are often Christian and a good number are also Buddhist. In order to maintain their control, the Burmese have systematically purposed to get rid of Karens who pose a major opposition to the government. For years, and especially since July 2007, thousands of Karens have been forced to flee their homes and end up on Thai soil where they have to start from scratch.

The Thai government offers little or no help; the Burmese junta are just glad to be rid of them. So this is where we come in…Supplies, connecting sponsors, spiritual strength and support. [slideshow id=8]
