Sarah Wayne Callies: That day at the pool
February 9, 2012
By Sarah Wayne Callies
Sarah Wayne Callies visits the IRC office in Atlanta, where she spent last summer working on the second season of AMC’s hit series "The Walking Dead."
Actress and IRC Voice Sarah Wayne Callies is preparing to travel to Thailand later this month to visit camps on the border with Myanmar, also known as Burma, where the International Rescue Committee assists Burmese families who have fled political upheaval at home. Here she reflects on her experience last summer as a volunteer mentor for a family from one Burmese minority ethnic group; the Karen. The family had recently resettled in Atlanta with the IRC’s help after 18 years in the camps.
