Food prices

If you are concerned about the rising cost of your grocery bills, spare a thought for the Thailand Burma Border Consortium, the charity consortium that runs the refugee camps full of ethnic minorities fleeing genocide in Burma (the military who took control of that country in 1962 call it Myanmar), their annual food bill has risen from US $16 million to 23.5 million since January! What that means is (unless donors can stump up the difference – and $1.2million has been pledged so far by the Netherlands and Ireland) that refugees “food baskets” will be cut, again.
