Protect Five Children in Burma with Immunizations
Protect five children in Burma by immunizing them against some of the most devastating childhood diseases.
The ethnic minorities along the Thai-Burma border suffer limited health care and a health status among the world's worst. With training from Dr. Cynthia Maung's Mae Tao Clinic, health workers from these minority groups are bringing the rudiments of modern health care, including childhood immunizations that are routine in the Western world, to over 120 remote communities deep in the Burmese rainforest. For the first time, the children in these villages can benefit from immunizations against some of the most devastating childhood diseases.
This Gift That Gives More™ immunizes five children under five years old in eastern Burma, covering the vaccines, needles, and other supplies related to the immunization program. Vaccinations provided:
- BCG (tuberculosis)
- DPT (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus)
- Oral Poliomyelities (polio)
The 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.
