(Ok, you can go in for 1 day but that's just stupid.)
Behind that building in the middle is Myanmar. Arrived in Thailand most northern town, Mae Sai.

Kanchana Thornton, founder of Union Aid Abroad APHEDA partner organisation Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) is a Finalist of THE ONE 2017 Humanitarian award.

Kanchana established BCMF in 2006 and provides much needed medical care for those disenfranchised by decades of war and political conflict on the Thai-Burma border.

Kanchana has spent many years working with Thai security institutions to acquire authorization to treat refugees and migrants, and has negotiated for their safe passage to hospitals for treatment. She has even secured significant discounts in hospital bills, allowing the money saved to go towards further expanding BCMF.
To date, Kanchana has helped save over 2,000 patients with complex medical conditions who wouldn’t have survived without her help.
Find out more about her and Burma Children Medical Fund on their Facebook page. #findTHEONE #Humanitarian #Award #THEONE2017

Saw Mort, Karen News journalist, stands with his Australian colleagues from Fairfax. ⠀

Karen News provides a window to Burma and the international community on what is happening in Karen state. Journalists live and work in Karen communities, know the issues that affect Karen people and aim to bring those issues to the attention of people across Burma, in the diaspora, and to all readers interested in the struggles and triumphs of the Karen people.⠀

Karen State has remained a conflict zone for 66 years, during which the Burma Army has waged war against the Karen people. Since 1996 more than 3,600 villages have been abandoned or destroyed, and as many as 500,000 people were displaced as a direct result of armed conflict.⠀

In 2015 the people of Burma voted the National League for Democracy into government. However, the military kept power by having control over key ministries and automatically having 25% parliamentary seats granted by the constitution.⠀

Until recently, for KAREN NEWS journalists, everyday stories covered a range of crimes against humanity – extrajudicial killings, sexual violence, forced labor, child soldiers, forced displacement, human trafficking. Among this carnage, our journalists, reported stories of hope, love and dignity. ⠀
