Driven by poverty, continuous ethnic battles, oppression, human rights abuse and many more intolerable reasons, millions of Myanmar people have moved often illegally to their neighboring country – Thailand – in search of work and better life.

Better life? What kind of fate do they face?

This collection of photographs, some printed in National Geographic Magazine (Thai edition), will show you the fact of their lives and destinies, to bring awareness about the existence of Myanmar people in our country. In this photo, the Myanmar girl was waiting for her mother at a roadside in front of the Mae La refugee camp – her home. Girls of her age were at risk of being deceived to enter forced labor or unfortunately prostitution.
