News reports regarding Myanmar (formerly Burma) include disturbing descriptions: deadly clashes, refugees, starvation, rape and ethnic cleansing. While the crisis has been mounting for almost 20 years, only now are international news headlines—“Asian Darfur,” “Forgotten Crisis,” “The Silent Genocide”—bringing the world’s attention to Myanmar’s ever-worsening conditions.
