  1. A Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Dr Khin Win Kyu has been volunteering much of her time for the last 17 years at the Muslim Free Hospital in Yangon, a hospital that treats poorer communities without charge, regardless of race, religion or ethnicity. Earlier Dr Khin Win Kyu worked in the government service for 22 years. Established in the 1930s, the hospital is a microcosm of what an ideal Myanmar society could be like, where people from all faiths work together to treat the less fortunate, irrespective of their religion, ethnicity or race.

(The background photograph is of Kibera, the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Homes in Kibera are shacks of corrugated metal, with no plumbing or electricity. 20,000 children in Kibera can't afford to attend public school, due to the cost of books and uniforms. HIV/AIDS devastates the community.)
