Clear Path International

I have just been reading about the group Clear Path International whose mission statement is:

Restore dignity and self-sufficiency to conflict survivors. We provide innovative, high-impact programming that is scalable, replicable, measurable and cost-effective.

This next information is straight from their website.

Clear Path International has been working with ethnic refugee committees along the Thai/Burma border since 2002 to provide prosthetic and rehabilitation care, psycho-social services, vocational training and socio-economic support to refugees and internally displaced landmine accident survivors. CPI has provided assistance to approximately 4,500 direct and indirect Burmese beneficiaries since 2002.

On their website I also saw the trailer for a film, The Eyes of Thailand, which tells the story of Soraida Salwala’s efforts to save two elephants which have been injured by landmines. They are given prosthetics. I must track this film down and watch the whole story as the trailer is only a tease.
