New arrivals

Photoblog Timelight @ Mae La has a new essay The new arrivers and their food in Mae La Camp. In just ten pictures and a few score words you can get a good idea of life in the camp.
The little girl in the last picture is really enjoying her food. But it is not the feast we enjoyed for my birthday.
However, we’ve raised almost $2,600 towards a new roof for the girls dormitory at the IDP school. Thank you to everyone who contributed, and to Nathan and Tommy who cooked, and all those who helped clear up, especially Bob!
(I delayed posting this as there were still some donations coming in which were slowly pushing the total nearer to the $4,000 that’s needed. I have also been hoping to have pictures of the dorm as they have – I believe – started work on the roof this week…)
