Clinic of heroes

The Mae Tao clinic in the Thai border town of Mae Sot each year treats thousands of victims of Burma’s civil war. Many arrive there from deep inside the Karen jungle where Burmese troops and ethnic armies have littered the ground with landmines; others there simply reflect the woeful state of Burma’s heathcare system. US senator John McCain visited Mae Tao last week and described the work done by staff there as “one of the most impressive efforts that I’ve ever seen in the world”.
