At First Wesleyan Church we have refugees from three different states of Burma. The majority are from the Chin and Karen states. Most of the refugees from the Karen [Caw Rin, put accent on second syllable] state of Burma lived in refugee camps in Thailand prior to emigrating to the United States Here is a picture of the camps closest to the Karen state, across the border in Thailand. To learn more about the plight and status of Burmese refugees do a Google search on the subject. As always cross check from various sources, what you read on the web to make sure it is true.
