EPISODE 18 OF MY EXTREME HOLIDAYS PODCAST OUT NOW: WORKING WITH THE KAREN, MAE LA REFUGEE CAMP!
Even though Kimberly’s life was threatened twice, she still remained determined to help:
It made me realise that I want to make a difference in people’s lives….The mere fact that I have a country that recognises me as a citizen and refugees like the Karen, and refugees now, they don’t have that privilege.Dr Kimberly Brown

The name of the podcast episode is: EPISODE 18: WORKING WITH THE KAREN, MAE LA REFUGEE CAMP and you can listen to the full episode here:
In 1994, Kimberly Brown embarked on a lifelong dream of travelling the globe overland. Her trip innocently began in San Francisco on a hippie bus called the Green Tortoise. She worked the Galway Arts Festival in Ireland, traversed Russia on the Trans-Siberian railway, and rode horses on the high Mongolian plains. If it hadn’t been for a nasty stomach bug she caught in China, she may never have volunteered as a teacher at Mae La refugee camp on the Thai/Burmese border in the middle of a war. Immersing herself in the ways of the Karen people, Kimberly discusses some of the harrowing events she experienced and witnessed (including having her own life threatened twice), the enduring spirit of a country less people, and how the refugees healed her and changed her life forever.
Now a naturopathic doctor, in much due to her experience with the Karen refugees, you can find Dr. Kimberly Brown at www.sanjoseintegrativemedicine.com
