Refugees breathe new life into rural town

Like many rural towns, the west Victorian town of Nhill had an ageing and shrinking population, which was having an adverse impact on the town's economy. But Nhill's newest residents have managed to breathe new life into the struggling town.

The Karen people are one of the most persecuted ethnic minorities in the world. Having fled Burma, hundreds of Karen people now live in Nhill, where they've turned the town's economy around.
