Just before Easter this year, EMA opened a new clinic called Rain Tree Clinic in a remote part of the jungle in Myanmar. Before this facility, the people in the area had a hard day’s walk to get to the nearest medical help of any kind. Foreigners are still not allowed to go to this area. As […]

It’s tough to identify the single biggest challenge in our 6-month adjustment from Pennsylvania, U.S. to Ler Doh (Kyaukkyi), Myanmar. But I can tell you the biggest pleasure has been taking my kids to work with me. This change of a closer, more parallel life of work and family is a welcome change. If a job or profession in […]
