More than 1,200 people call Ler Per Her home. Many have found their way to the refuge of the village often having spent years on the run from the Burmese army, hiding in the jungles, constantly living in fear. But now the journey into the darkness starts once again for all those who had found temporary peace at Ler Per Her.
In early June 2009 the Burmese army stepped up its military offensive against the KNLA launching shells and mortar grenades into Ler Per Her and surrounding villages forcing thousands to flee over the border into Thailand. They are now left homeless once again with no food, no shelter, no healthcare and little hope.
