Re: “Still Seeking Refuge

Thank you for covering this heart-rending story.

I work at Lao Family, which was mentioned here. I've been talking to my new co-workers who are themselve Burmese and Bhutanese refugees, and reading a lot about the many struggles that new arrivals have faced both in their homelands and upon arriving here. We have hired six staff already to work with Burmese and Bhutanese clients, and it is a major challenge, especially, as you've noted, in this economic climate the way it is.

I want to invite people to get in touch with us if you are inspired to help. You can reach me at mfuller (at) to arrange to volunteer or donate, an also to talk about employing one of these refugees. I will be very, very happy to help you connect with our staff. You can also call our offices and ask for me: Mary Fuller, 510-533-8850

Thanks again for covering this story.
