In March of 2010 I began to work with Shan migrants in Thailand with SalusWorld. A brief description of what my story and trauma work was in Thailand is in my 9/24/09 entry. Updates were posted periodically during my stay. Blog entries of my similar work with Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) Healing Centers in Liberia can be found at 10/07/07, 10/13/07, 10/24/07, & 11/05/07.

At night I carefully walk up three flights of wooden steps to my room. The steps are too small for my American feet. This morning the red sun arises & peeks over the corrugated roof tops. In Chiang Ria I learned more about the tribal hill people's, attempts to survive & preserve their culture. I made contact with an NGO & spent time at the Hill Tribe Museum. I hope the knowledge & contacts will help me in the work.
