In early 2006 I went to the border between Thailand and Burma and spent a few weeks, in collaboration with the French NGO AMI (Aide Médicale Internationale), in the refugee camps. They fled from the combat zones where freedom fighters struggle against the Burmese army, as well as from the persecution carried out by the junta.
In this report I endeavour to show the daily life of some ten thousand refugees as well as the support provided by AMI to those populations in terms of healthcare (consultations, hospital care, mental health…), of medical training, of health education and of water sanitation.
Calcutta Rescue is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) working to serve the most socially and economically disadvantaged people in Kolkata and rural West Bengal - regardless of gender, age, caste or religion.
In my collaboration with Calcutta Rescue I am trying to bear witness, as objectively as possible, without exaggeration or minimisation, to the message of hope which Calcutta Rescue brings to the destitute of the City of Joy.
