Three years ago, I met “Mommy Paw, “ a woman of the jungle, a nameless face who is a mother to many.
How I met her isn’t important but by grace she took me deep into her world.
A world of smiles and tears, hope and pain, the Burmese refugee camps of Northern Thailand.
She introduced me to her children, 100’s of them, faces with names, stories, and smiles!
It was then my heart was arrested by the stories of the people, stories of horrific pain and confusing hope; hope that exists in a time and place that doesn’t make sense.
Over the years I’ve gone back to visit my friends, because that’s who they are now, people who I’ve come to love! It’s an honor to know them, they have taught me so much. I’ve had the privilege to stay in the camps with them and do a little bit of life, document stories, but mostly… learn.
*I wanted to share some of the moments I’ve come to experience. This video is a compellation of raw footage of the faces and moments from some of my time in the refugee camps.
*Everyone has a name and story. It’s incredible what you may learn if you just ask and listen.
