Full Circle

40 years ago, American Refugee Committee began its journey in response to the crisis on the Thai-Camodian border, where a terrible genocide of Khmer people was taking place. In fact, Sokunthea Bentley and Kosol Sek, Cambodian-Americans who serve on the executive team at IKARE, lived in Khao I Dang, a refugee camp where ARC worked. Sokunthea remembers the ARC health clinic there. ‚ÄúThis organization was the start of my life in the refugee camp,” she said.
