Nu Po refugee camp, or Noh Poe as it is also often called, means "small lake" in Karen and is home to almost 15,000 people who have fled their native Burma. The camp was set up in March 1997 after a major offensive during which the Burma Army took control of Duplaya District in Karen State. Many former political prisoners are sent here when they escape across the border in Thailand.
