For more than 20 years, refugees from Burma/Myanmar have been fleeing to Thailand to seek refuge from human rights abuses by the authoritarian regime in Burma and from fights between armed opposition groups and the Burmese military. Approximately 150.000 refugees live in nine refugee camps along the Thai-Myanmar border. The refugees are fully dependent on international support for shelter, food, education, water/ sanitation and health services while income opportunities are limited.
