Umpiem Mai refugee camp
One of the huge refugee camps near Mae Sot, home to more than 17,000 Burmese refugees. Two weeks ago three sections of the camp--the Muslim sections--suffered a devastating fire. These are people who'd already lost their home inside Myanmar, who weren't allowed to use sturdier, less-flammable building materials in Thailand--as camps are supposed to be temporary--who then lost whatever homes they'd re-created.
We've done a lot of fundraising in Mae Sot to help with 2,500 refugees' loss of clothes, food, housewares. Funding of these items were split between NGOs that don't have an easy-to-designate online donation process. But anyone outside of the area who wants to help, can donate to Thai-Burma Border Consortium, which is taking care of the rebuilding of homes.
