Onlookers watch and cheer as ambulances Deliver boys to hospital in ChiangRai after helicopter landing on July 8, 2018 in Chiangrai, Thailand. Divers began an effort to pull the 12 boys and their soccer coach on Sunday morning after they were found alive in the cave at northern Thailand.

Late to this, but I had a great time photographing in the Mae Tao Clinic for @vicenews #repost ・・・ The “miracle clinic” is not easy to find. A few miles east of the Myanmar border, down an unmarked road surrounded by farmland outside the Thai town of Mae Sot, a cluster of tiny restaurants appears like an oasis, selling noodles, cold drinks, and snacks. Behind the shops, a gaggle of motorbike taxi drivers in bright orange vests rest in the shade waiting for their next fare. Nearly everyone passing by seems to have a young child, a baby, or one on the way. It’s a calm scene, and it belies the vital role the Mae Tao Clinic has played for nearly three decades in the middle of the world’s longest-running civil war. Around 350 people arrive here every day seeking all kinds of care — ophthalmology, surgery, acupuncture — but maternal health is Mae Tao’s specialty. Since 1989, it’s helped tens of thousands of women through healthy pregnancies and births, serving generations of Burmese migrants and refugees in both Thailand and Myanmar with nowhere else to turn. Mae Tao provides access to trained staff, life-saving equipment, and resources like infant vaccinations and birth certificates for free. The record year for deliveries was 2012, when 3, 500 babies were born. Patients call it the “miracle clinic” because it seems too good to be true.

On World Refugee day, I’m thinking of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have been forcibly displaced from Myanmar and the other 68.5 million who were displaced globally last year. . . . Sayad Hossain, a 40 year old Rohingya man, shelters himself and his children with a tarp during a monsoon rain in the rice paddy field connecting Myanmar and Bangladesh in Anjuman Para. Sayad Hossain travelled from Buithidaung, Myanmar with his ten family members to seek refuge in the camps in Bangladesh. . . A young Rohingya boy carries some of his belongings to Teknaf, Bangladesh after arriving the night before by boat from Myanmar. . . An elderly Rohingya man sleeps at a government hospital in Cox’s Bazar city - a clinic that was set up to supplement the aid given by NGOs in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. #worldrefugeeday #refugee #myanmar #bangladesh #rohingya #stateless #humanrights

Spent a few days in Siem Reap last week photographing @pharecambodiancircus while on assignment for Getty Images/Lumix. Phare: The Cambodian Circus is one of the many projects by the Phare Ponleu Selpak Acadamy which began in 1994. A group of Cambodian men living in displacement camps after the fall of the Khmer Rouge recognized healing power in the visual and performing arts and set out to create a community for the younger generation. Many circus trainees at Phare go on to work internationally in performing arts. #circus #performingarts #cambodia #siemreap #travel #gettyimages #lumixg9 #lumix #southeastasia #asia

Lennie Visbal, a 52 Filipino who works at an international school in Thailand, sits on her couch after work in Pattaya. Ms. Visbal has not been able to cut ties to her estranged husband because divorce is illegal in the Philippines. The Philippines is the only country in the world, aside from Vatican City, where divorce remains illegal.
