In Thailand, our staff are partnering with The Church of Christ in Thailand to prepare to build a new Kwai River Christian Hospital. The original clinic dates to the 1960s and served patients from among highly vulnerable people living in near the Thai-Myanmar border.

Most patients are displaced and undocumented ethnic minorities from Myanmar, and some are Thai citizens who cannot access government health care or have emergency care needs.

In the photo, the hospital architect, Mr. Wirote Tesslaee , surveys the proposed construction site with USAID/American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) senior engineer, Mr. Mohammad Latif, who recently visited from the US.
