Help train a mobile health worker to serve isolated communities in need.

Donations to train a backpack medic for Burma will be matched up to $10,000

The ethnic minorities along the Thai-Burma border suffer limited health care and a health status among the world's worst. Dr. Cynthia's Mae Tao Clinic in Mae Sot, Thailand, trains health workers who will then trek through the jungle with literally only the supplies they can carry, in a mission to bring health care to the most isolated communities in eastern Burma. Several have been killed during the trek, either by landmines or government military.

Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ trains a "backpack medic" at Dr. Cynthia's clinic in Mae Sot, Thailand.


Mae Tao Clinic, founded by Dr. Cynthia Maung in 1988 to serve the flood of displaced Burmese people surging across the border into Thailand, has served tens of thousands of Burmese refugees living in the border region of Mae Sot, Thailand. In November 2007, the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy named Dr. Cynthia Maung as the winner of the 2007 Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award.

Community Partners International is dedicated to serving the most vulnerable people in Burma/Myanmar's remote villages, underserved central areas and conflict-affected border regions where there is little to no access to health care or public health education. Our global network has partnered with more than 60 local organizations, including the Mae Tao Clinic, collaborating on community-based health projects and providing health skills training, resources, and technical support.
