Food scarcity and access to clean water are major problems in the refugee camp. An aid organization called the Thailand Burma Border Consortium supplies rice, beans, fish paste and chillies among other things. Our friends told us they don't supply any meat or vegetables. The recent problems with rice production have dramatically impacted the refugee camp. Refugees at Mae La used to get 15 kilos of rice per month. This month it went down to 12 kilos and there are rumor that it will soon go down to 8 kilos.
