Welcome Eh Paw and Eh Yaw
This month we have had a number of new arrivals. Two brothers of Paw Kyet Yaw arrived following their sister to start a new life in High Point. I was talking with the World Relief director, Andrew, and he indicated that the number of refugees in camps on the Thai border is now 70,000. The UN is setting a deadline for these folks to apply for refugee status. This final group will filter through to various countries over the next few years. The UN has already combined camps and is closing down the refugee camps in this border area. In Malaysia and India there are still a number of Chin and Kachin refugees seeking asylum from persecution on Myanmar.
