BANGKOK, Thailand - The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is saddened to report that La Say Paw, a laboratory technician with the IRC’s refugee partner organization, the Karenni Health Department, was killed on March 22 in the blaze that took the lives of 36 others and injured over 200 in the Ban Mae Surin refugee camp in northwest Thailand.
Last year, La Say, 25, was selected to participate in the IRC’s laboratory services training program and successfully completed the course despite her obligations to help her mother support La Say’s 19-year-old sister and 17-year-old brother.
