A naturalized U.S. citizen, HYoanh Ksor Buonya was a Montagnard refugee from the Central Highlands of Vietnam, near the Jarai village of Cheo Reo. Escaping Viet Nam - H'Yoanh's Story is a survival saga beyond the imagination. From 1975 to her arrival in North Carolina in November 1986, HYoanh faced starvation, danger, death and incredible hardships resulting from the potential capture by Pol Pots genocidal regime. Even though her faith was tested, she believes that angels were with her through the darkest of times.
