The camp in Songkhla for VN refugees was closed in May 1986, almost exactly 10 years after it was opened.
Voluntary agencies such as the United States Catholic Conference, the International Rescue Committee, and Church World Service arranged sponsorships for the refugees and took care of their initial needs upon arriving in the United States.
For info, you can try to contact

The latter includes graphic descriptions of how badly the "boat people" were treated by the neighboring countries.Source(s): Here is a chat room http://groups.google.com.pk/group/soc.culture.viet...
