Myanmar situation at the moment

Dear friends,

today we woke up with unexpected news from newspapers and, more importantly, from our colleagues in Myanmar: the political situation of the country is extremely fragile at the moment and it has been declared the state of emergency. Internet and telephone communication has been interrupted for some hours. When the connection was available again, we immediately reach out to the local staff for news and it seems that all the country is living in a suspended time waiting for the next move to come.

To avoid security problems for both the MedAcross'staff and remote area patients, we decided to postpone the Mobile Clinic trips for some days, while the Kawthaung Clinic will remain open to all patients.

Our concern for the Mobile Clinic is that the groups of patience awaiting the medical visit in the villages could be misunderstood as political protesters. Our goal is to help people who do not have access to medical care and we intend to pursue our goal of friendship without political implications.

I will keep you informed in the next days

Warm regards, 

Vittoria from MedAcross
