Karen YPD Medical Training program

As we reported in our previous post, the Covid crisis has hit Karen villages and communities in Myanmar very hard.

Sadly, many of those villages lack trained medical personnel able to care for patients suffering from Covid and other illnesses.

The Karen YPD has responded to this challenge by organising a one-month medical training program for young people from seven local villages.

Congratulations to the organisers, teachers and students who made this possible.

Thanks also to the Korean Hope Foundation (Marie Rhie) and Akasaa Malaysia (Angela Yap) for the financial support that made the program possible.
