Life in Myanmar lately

In Myanmar, it has been increasingly difficult to operate for the past two years due to constant political tension. Despite the circumstances, MedAcross is one of the few NGOs that continues to operate in remote villages through mobile clinics.
In the latest mobile clinic, the MedAcross team reached the home of U., a 71-year-old man who has been suffering from lung problems for months. Since he became ill, U. has been unable to work, which creates several difficulties for both him and his family, which consists of six members.
Our medical team joined examined him carefully, gave him doses of antibiotic and helped with respiratory problems through a portable nebulizer, teaching him how to use the inhaler checked his blood pressure.
Through the Mobile Clinics we reach people who live too far from hospitals and are unable to get treatment at this time.
