Karen - Chin Refugees Among Us
Christian refugees who have fled Burma's oppressive military government, the Karen and Chin, have been attending CHBC
and participating with us for some time now. On this page are links to information about these people and how
they have come to be among us. Also included is a Karen to English dictionary.

A note from Annette Ellard, with great background info on Karen, Chin, and Karenni
I recently came across this excellent document that profiles refugees from Burma. In gives a good background of the situation in Burma as well as details about the main groups being resettled, including the Karen, the Chin and the Karenni. Because we have many of these people in our congregation, I think this will be a helpful resource for Americans who want to know these brothers and sisters better.
Also, I am attaching a link to the Karen Christian Leaders Newsletter in English and Karen. I think this might also be a good link to put on the CHBC site. If you follow this link, you can get both the English and Karen pdf.
