The Karen are a people group concentrated along the Thai-Myanmar border. Although deeply community oriented, one of the world’s longest civil wars has forced many to flee their homes to distant countries. Even as peace in Myanmar struggles forward, many of those Karen who stayed still struggle to scratch out a living as farmers. In mountain and jungle areas, little is left over for education or healthcare.
Earth Mission Asia’s programs are focused on developing a sustainable training program for indigenous healthcare teams to serve these marginalized areas.
