Myanmar is home to one of the highest concentrations of landmines in the world.
The area along the country's border with Thailand has been home to an ethnic Karin rebel group for years, and the government has laid a number of mines there in response to the rebellion.
Many victims of the mines, however, are civilians. And, unable to get sufficient treatment in the area, they are forced to cross the border into Thailand seeking medical care.
