KLEO Support Group


We cannot begin to comprehend the emotional and physical effect that years of displacement, persecution and silence have had on the Karen people. Despite decades of suffering they remain devoted to their families and culture, and loyal to those whom they have allowed into their lives. The Karen people are perceptive and insightful. They do not forget, but they move forward with a strong will to survive and thrive in spite of adversity. It is this will to survive and thrive that we support, with humility and admiration. Our work is not based on what we think the Karen need. It’s based on friendship, and a common understanding that emerges from years of walking beside our Karen friends. We are like-minded people who are honoured to share in the journey of the Karen. This is Kleo. We invite you to share this journey with us and visit us at kleosupportgroup.org
