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.
