Karen Refugees

  • More than 140,000 Burmese Karen refugees have fled to Thailand to escape war and human rights abuses.
  • Since 2005 more than 50,000 Karen refugees have been resettled in Western countries, with most people going to America and fewer people going to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and some European countries.[1]
