Backpack Medics Saving Lives

Help backpack medics get medicine to refugees in Burma’s remote jungles.

The people of Burma have endured over 60 years of military attacks. To date, more than half a million Karen and other minority communities have fled their homes seeking refuge in the Burmese jungles. They have no medical care and curable diseases like malaria, dysentery, and pneumonia are prevalent.

BURMA HUMANITARIAN MISSION (BHM) equips backpack medics with emergency trauma care and medicine to deliver to these refugees. The medics trek through dangerous areas near the Thai-Burma border to reach the jungles. They risk concealed landmines and army violence to deliver life-saving medicine to those in hiding.
