TCF Refugee Award Winner

Laura Kynaw, winner of the 2015 TCF Refugee Award, arrived in Canada as refugee in April of 1999. In Laura’s words, “I was born in the UNHCR Refugee Camp at Mae La Oon, Thailand. My parents fled to the refugee camp because of the war going on in Myanmar. All of their lives they had to flee from village to village when the Burmese Army attacked, and eventually they found a shelter in the refugee camp. My parents spent ten years of their lives with their four children inside the refugee camp. After ten years we were blessed with the opportunity of coming to Canada. READ MORE
