“We don’t have any accessories to go to school with. So even we cannot go to school, it’s not easy for us. We don’t know which school we can go to and we don’t have any money also,” Grade Seven student Ma Khin Nu Aye from Kan Sauk refugee camp said.

“If they reach a mutual understanding, we can find relief. Now, we just hear about the loss of lives very often here. My husband was also killed,”

A terrible incident destroyed their humble abode in Thameehla village in late January, 2019. The incident was a torrential rain of gun fire into the village on January 26.
