|I am not able to use a good image editing program on the road, so I am left with two choices: put up 300-800k images (which would take FOREVER to see on the net), or use the small preview images that the camera creates automatically. I have opted for the latter. The effect for you is fairly low resolution images, but it's better than nothing!|
Pam Rogers, an addiction therapist working for National Health And Education Committee (a Burmese organization) joined me for the first few days. She led a 2 day addiction therapy workshop, the first ever in the Shan State.
A few pictures of the camp and where I stayed. Certain pictures and information have been redacted; you figure it out.
Since people who are hiding within their own country are not technically refugees; they are referred to as 'internally displaced people' (IDP).
Some 420 displaced people live in a small camp about 15 minutes from where I stayed. There are over 100 children in this village with no school or teachers. The only chance these children have for an education is you; please help with this effort if you can. Donation information and project specifics can be found here.
A bamboo temple near the camp where I stayed and some of the orphans who live there.
