Recently Linny, an Arrive Ministries volunteer interpreter, hosted a fundraiser at his church to raise money for building two new wells at the refugee camp in Thailand where he lived for five years.
Linny cooked and sold delicious Karen food that many Arrive Ministries staff members enjoyed. He raised about $1,800 that day.
“Seeing the desperate conditions in this refugee camp motivated Linny to make a difference all the way from his home in St. Paul.”
Linny was inspired to help build the wells after he visited the Mae La refugee camp where he fled to and lived in Thailand during his childhood.
During this visit Linny brought along 400 pounds of books and clothes that his friends and family at the camp said they needed. Many Arrive Ministries friends helped donate these books and clothes through our “Love Your Neighbor” program.
Seeing the desperate conditions in which many forcibly displaced Karen people lived in this refugee camp motivated Linny to make a difference all the way from his home in St. Paul.
