Karenni refugee from Burma secure in a place to call home in Wyndham
He will be 40 next year but, for the first time in his life, Mae Sie Win is enjoying a basic state of grace most of us take for granted, living without fear and in a place where he feels he belongs.
His trauma dates back decades: as a 13 year old, taken by the Burmese military, kicked and beaten and barely fed as he carried their supplies across mountainous terrain; as an 18 year old, fleeing Burma to the safety of a refugee camp; then the better part of two decades as a stateless person in that camp.
