IDP Fundraiser

Added on by Sabrina Biffer.

I was honored when my friend, P., invited me to photograph this fundraising event for internally displaced persons (IDPs) affected by the recent floods in Myanmar. The local Kachin American Community organization hosted the event, which featured music and dance performances, raffles, and a wonderful variety of foods from different regions of Myanmar. I was struck by the focus on inclusion at this event; all ethnic groups from Myanmar were invited and equally celebrated.
