A Burmese monk, who lost the lower part of his left leg, receives treatment at Mae Tao Clinic, on the Burma-Thai border town of Mae Sot. The clinic was established by Dr. Cynthia Maung, a Burmese-Karen woman, to offer free medical services to Burmese who do not qualify for treatment at the local Mae Sot Hospital. He lost his leg after being shot and beaten by the Burmese Army during the 2007 anti Burmese government protests that became known as the Saffron Revolution.
