Saharat “Kong” Sangkapricha (singer/musician)  and Praya “Pu” Suandokmai (actress/model) along with Jakrawut “Van” Sawangpol (song writer) and Piyakarn “Mook” Budprasert (director) went on a trip to visit Mae La Refugee Camp in Tak province, the largest refugee camp on Thailand’s western border, as high-profile supporters and representatives of the NAMJAI FOR REFUGEES campaign. While visiting the camp, all four supporters have learned stories of refugees who fled from war and conflict in their homes before arriving at Mae La Refugee Camp. These experiences will inspire them to create their artwork to complete their mission for the NAMJAI FOR REFUGEES campaign.

Learning about them is pushing me to do something for them” - Saharat “Kong” Sangkapricha listened to the story of an elderly refugee woman who had gone through traumatic sufferings and losses before she arrived at the refugee camp.
