Introduction

MedAcross is currently involved in a medical and humanitarian project in Myanmar (former Burma).

In this region, health problems are particularly severe because of the strong presence of Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) living in precarious conditions.

A rather poor area plagued by sexual exploitation of boys and girls who are brought to the lands of the border with Thailand with the promise of ļ¬nding work and instead they often have to face a nightmare.

The MedAcross association came to know of this serious emergency thanks to reports from Oblate Thomas Haake, who has spent a lifetime working on humanitarian missions around the world and almost 20 years in Myanmar.
