Munwara Begum: Rundown School and Provisions Store
munwara begum: That land was once a forest where villagers picked wild fruit, according to Toronto Star. Last Saturday, the midday tea-sipping crowd hung out on the benches in front of Munwara Begum's provisions store here. The village's rundown school and a smattering of rice paddies sit across the road from thousands of acres of bamboo huts covered by black tarp, a safe harbour for the refugees fleeing ethnic violence in Burma. In their discussion were echoes of a conversation happening around the world about the costs of compassion toward refugees. The price of rice has doubled since they came. It was one filled with conflicting emotions. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
