Lily Cole visits the weaving shed in Nai Soi refugee camp on the Thai-Burmese border. The weaving project is an initiative run with the help of the Thailand Burma Border Consortium and Christian Aid. Weaving provides an income for refugees as well as appropriate items of clothing for distribution to the 15,000 refugees in the camp. There are 9 camps in the border region which provide safe shelter for 145,000 refugees who have been fleeing violence, fighting and human rights abuses in eastern Burma since 1984.
