The migrant path

Ma Yi and her little baby
Ma Yi and her little baby

My name is Ma Yi, I am 27 years old and I live with my little girl in the village of Aung Thar Yar, on the border between Myanmar and Thailand, but this was not my project.

My plan was to reach the Thailand border to offer a better future for my daughter. Since I left my family, I have traveled 12.000 kilometers: by foot, bus, and bicycle. During the trip started the covid-19 pandemic, I had to stop my journey in a safe place since countries' borders were closed.

I gave birth in an isolated village with the help of a midwife, the hospital was too far away and I could not afford the transport costs. At the moment it is impossible to continue my journey, I prefer to stay in the south of Myanmar, even if living in a small rural village is difficult.

A family living close told me about MedAcross when my baby got sick, the little one had never seen a doctor before. Dr. Khant was kind and the nurses gave us the necessary medicines and vaccinations for my baby. The doctor told me that MedAcross is an Italian project, I am moved to know that people so far away are thinking of us!

Thank you so much
