I’d also ask you to pray for the Bhutanese / Nepali refugees, who have been an oppressed people group in Bhutan since 1991. Over 105,000 Bhutanese have spent more than 15 years living in refugee camps established in Nepal by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). Thousands more are living outside the camps in Nepal and India, and some in North America, Europe and Australia. I work with many of these refugees in Trenton, NJ, and there is also a large population who have been resettled in Philadelphia.

To learn more about Bhutanese refugees in Philadelphia, check out this LA Times Article which was published about a year ago.
