Shan State...a place where the cultivation and distribution of opium has produced insurmountable social issues; where in some areas only 4% of children go to school; and where access to healthcare is extremely difficult or non-existent; and where natural resources are exploited and most of the state is in a forced ceasefire with the regime...it is here that Partners is training community healthcare workers, re-building education infrastructure, and providing scholarships to students whom otherwise would not have a chance to study.
This is the story of one student medic. He survived a devastating childhood, one robbed by the Burma Army. Yet through perseverance, hard work and a chance to study, he will continue to save lives and is a beacon of hope for his community.
