BBP psychologist Elizabeth Call's discusses her impression of the Dr. Cynthia Maung and the conversation that led to the creation of Burma Border Projects. Herself a Karen refugee, Dr. Cynthia fled through the jungle to the relative safety of Thailand after the pro-democracy demonstrations in Burma in 1988 left over 3,000 Burmese shot dead in the streets. Since arriving as a refugee in Thailand, Dr. Cynthia has established numerous programs and facilities to support her people including the well-known Mae Tao Clinic, which is located a stone's throw from the Burma border in Mae Sot, Thailand. Dr. Cynthia is often the difference between life and death for refugees who would have no place else to turn.
