fter escaping Myanmar, Seethong’s parents found work – and created a life – on a rubber plantation in southern Thailand.
But when 6-year-old Seethong crushes his hand in a rubber press, his hospital bill threatens to ruin everything his family has built.
In the weeks following Seethong’s injury, his sister stays by his hospital bed while his father and brother begin a rigorous work schedule, struggling to pay the mounting medical bill. Seethong’s mother travels between home and the hospital, acting as the bridge for her suddenly fractured family.
One thing holds the family together – knowing that this injury would have been far more devastating in Myanmar. Despite the cost, there is hope for them on this side of the border.
