First FBR Aviation Mission Flight

16 January, 2018
Eh Khu Taw – flown from Karen State, Burma into Thailand for surgery

Eh Khu Taw was only 3 days old when he was flown from the Burma border on board FBR’s Cessna 172 to a hospital in Thailand for an emergency, life-saving surgery. There is no hospital in his home area of Karen State, much less a surgical facility capable of helping a newborn. After a successful procedure in Chiang Mai, he is doing well and recently visited us during a follow-up appointment.

This flight captures our heart and hope for aviation in Thailand, Burma and the neighboring countries of Southeast Asia where Free Burma Rangers has worked for nearly 25 years.
