Refugees Weave For A Living in Ban Mae Surin
Pa Ni Paw and Naw Gay Moo are among 140,000 people from Myanmar living in nine refugee camps along the Thai border. They cannot leave the camps, and many live on dwindling aid handouts. A few years ago the Thai government began letting them earn money from work in the camps, and many—including Pa Ni Paw and Naw Gay Moo—have found ways of making a living. Both women live in the picturesque Ban Mae Surin camp in north Thailand's Mae Hong Son province, which suffered a devastating fire a few weeks after the filming of this report.
