Since people seek refuge in Ban Mai Nai Soi camp because they are fleeing violence, any nascent sense of hope and safety is easily undermined when they feel threatened or are violated.
Actress and IRC Voice Sarah Wayne Callies recently visited refugee camps on Thailand's border with Myanmar, also known as Burma. One of them was the Ban Mai Nai Soi camp’s Site One, where the International Rescue Committee assists Burmese refugees who have fled conflict and economic hardship at home.
