Burma Humanitarian Mission
American Refugee Committee

Providing trauma care and long-term health care
Clinic in Kalma Camp in Darfur

"The Burma army has attacked my people, the Kachin. The Burma army fights us for our land. When they do not have food, they steal food. My people has many problems and diseases. There's no health care for the community. We provide that for them. I treat people with Diarrha, malaria and pneumonia. I am going to be a medic for a long time. I want to continue to help my people." Ja Bawu, Backpack Medic.

"In this [emergency medical] shelter [at Kalma Camp in Darfur], families will have access to prenatal care for pregnant mothers, immunizations for kids, and other vital, lifesaving services. Thank you again to Quail Roost in responding for displaced families in Darfur. Your support was critical." Chris Kindler, American Refugee Committee
