Welcome to America, Saw Han Tun & Moe Moe Thein
This morning I met Saw Han Tun and Moe Moe Thein. They just arrived in America from Myanmar. They are S’gaw Karen but are very comfortable with the Burmese language. They are among the few Karen who did not flee east to the refugee camps but rather to the south to Malaysia where they worked in the capital until they could gain UN refugee status. Welcome to our country. We are glad you are here Saw Han Tun and Moe Moe Thein. By the way they were so comfortable with English they initiated a greeting with me when we met.
