Woo (pseudonym) is a 31-year-old farmer. He was living with six family members in Ngar Htone village in Kachin state. On 10 January 2017, armed groups caused intense warfare, and he and his family had to flee their village. The family journeyed for five days with little food, only one knife, one blanket, and a few baby clothes. They eventually reached a refugee camp in Sadon. On the way, his wife and children were very scared by the sound of gunfire.

Before the warfare, they had pigs and cows, but they could not bring them along during the war. When they reached the refugee camp, there was not enough food, but thankfully the Lisu Christian Church gave them some vegetables. Three months later, FMFF staff visited their family and distributed food and rice to them, as well as education and healthcare for the children.

Woo says: ‘Whenever FMFF staff came to visit us, we prayed together and asked God for a safe community and rebuilding our homes. Through God’s grace, we were able to know FMFF and CEDAR, the two organisations that truly love and care for our Lisu people for many years.’

Woo’s family prays and blesses the staff of the two organisations every Sunday, and prays for peace. Woo’s family hopes to rebuild their home soon.
