Countless families across southeast Asia continue to suffer because of COVID-19. Few are as heavily affected than Burmese (Myanmar) migrant workers in Thailand. Recently, a US-based CWS colleague joined a HIAS colleague to ask for help. Quickly, the Asia Regional Office in Bangkok was able to allocate a small grant to help 40 families for a month or so. Earlier, the families had been helped by a Princeton in Asia alumnus and his friends. The PIA graduate had been a volunteer with the community years ago. Now, they have lifesaving food and essential non-food items that met their immediate needs. This collage shows highlights of the aid effort in Koa Lak.
