More than two million people from Burma have been displaced due to political instability and human rights violations. These refugees, migrants, and other displaced people are living in refugee camps and communities along the Thailand-Burma border. They have lost their homes and livelihoods, and many cannot access community social services that are available to the people of Thailand, such as health care, education, legal advice and protection.
