Hung Hong has been a refugee since 1979. A former farmer from Battambang in western Cambodia, he has given up hope of ever going home. "I don't want to go back anymore," he told a visitor to this sprawling refugee camp along the Thai border north of the town of Aranyaprathet. "We get a lot of aid. It's not my land here, but it's better to stay here than live under the Communists." Pat Piek is also afraid to go home. She said she fled as Vietnam invaded Cambodia in 1979.
