Boy from Mon Township




These are stills from video taken by the Free Burma Rangers a few weeks before the little boy mentioned in earlier posts died from Malaria. He is the one in the hammock and in the foreground of the other stills. His sister and Grandmother are in the pictures as well. His sister also got Malaria but survived. I'm sorry I don't know their names, but they are real people and had to run several times recently because of attacks by the Burma Army. If his family hadn't been on the run, without food, shelter or medicine he would surely still be alive.
