Organization

Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG)

KHRG was formed in 1992 to document the human rights abuses in rural Burma. The organization works directly with villagers who are suffering from forced labor, systematic destruction of villages and crops, forced relocation, extortion, looting, arbitrary detention, torture, sexual assault and summary executions. KHRG supports them by developing strategies to resist abuse and by translating their testimonies for worldwide distribution, accompanied by supporting documentary evidence.
