Bringing Hope to Displaced Communities in Northern Thailand

Photchanat Intaramanon , Jon Oxford

The village of Huai Wad was established six and a half years ago when Lahu people from four separate clusters were relocated to where the village now stands. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) face many challenges for survival and Huai Wad is no exception. Their greatest challenge was to ensure an adequate water supply through the dry season which lasts six months in this region of Thailand. For five years the community struggled with this problem which seemed impossible to solve within the meagre resources. This paper will describe how the efforts of a small group of Thai and Australian volunteers combined with other partners brought hope to this IDP community in the North of Thailand through small scale projects.
