Hello, happy 2022!

I hope this message finds you well and safe during these difficult times.

COVID-19 continues to prevail in the world and this pandemic have brought us many challenges and changes to our lives.

Because of that, we, Borderless Dentists, are not able to resume our activities in Thai-Myanmar border area yet.

Moreover, the tragedy in Myanmar left its people bereft of hope and democracy. A lot of people has fallen in their battle for democracy and we are filled with deep sadness.

We believe that people all over the world need to work together to put an end to such tragedy.

May peace prevail on earth. And we are looking forward to welcome our fellow dentists around the world again to Borderless Dentists!

MAE SOT, TAK, THAILAND

Temple in Mae Sot

Street in Mae Sot

Mae Sot is a central town for our activities. Many migrant learning centers and refugee camps are located in this area. Border exchanges with Myanmar have been historically very active and many migrants and ethnic minorities live around here. Furthermore, many foreign tourists and volunteers come to visit repeatedly so that Mae Sot becomes an attractive town mixed with other cultures based on Thai culture.

To those who are interested in volunteering, we are pleased to offer information about transportation and accommodation etc.

from Wikipedia :

Mae Sot is a city in western Thailand that shares a border with Myanmar to the west. It is notable as a trade hub and for its substantial population of Burmese migrants and refugees. The city is part of Tak Province, 87 km from the city of Tak and 492 km from Bangkok. It is home to the district headquarters of Mae Sot District, and is the main gateway between Thailand and Burma. As a result, it has gained notoriety for its trade in gems and teak, as well as black market services such as people trafficking and drugs.
