Refugees Find a Home in the Unlikeliest of Places

The refugees are Nepalese-speaking Bhutanese who lived in the Southern part of Bhutan. Bhutan is a small country in Southeast Asia near Nepal and India. In the early ’90s the Southern Bhutanese were forced to leave Bhutan when the government cited that they were residing in the country illegally. Some left voluntarily because they feared for their safety. Most of the refugees ended up in refugee camps in Nepal, where some of them have lived for more than 20 years.
