about

This Mae Tao Clinic Fundraiser features original music by independent artists from Brisbane, Melbourne and Montreal. Each artist kindly donated their music to support the work of this displaced people’s clinic in Mae Sot, Tak, Thailand.

Each year more than 70000 displaced people benefit from MTC's health, child protection and community services on the Thai-Burma Border. They serve Burmese workers (hired for unskilled labour but not provided with affordable access to healthcare), children and families from across the border, landmine victims, and anyone who can't access healthcare.

MTC's Departments include maternity, reproductive health, eye, pediatrics, dental, prosthetic, acupuncture, surgical & trauma, pharmacy, mental health, and child protection services. They also support numerous boarding houses and schools for displaced kids.

Visitors and volunteers (with prior notice) are always welcomed. For more information and ways to further assist MTC please visit
www.maetaoclinic.org.

Right now, we believe it is more important than ever to ensure people on the border receive the care and support they need, amidst rapid political and economic changes in Burma. The transition that we all hope for will not happen quickly. Sustainable change takes time. Will we leave our friends here to sing the Border Camp Blues on their own?

Thanks for giving a damn

Disclaimer: This fundraising project is personal, promoted only among friends, and is completely independent of any government or non-government organisation. Your involvement is voluntary and there is no tax-benefit whatsoever. Email me if you'd like more info: itspeterb@gmail.com. No one asked me to do this, nor am I representing MTC or any organisation. I'm just a human trying to be that little bit more fully human and more humane. The musicians gave their songs for this purpose only so please don't abuse their art and violate any copyright laws. What will happen to the money?: After Bandcamp takes their small commission for helping to host the music, the money will transferred to the clinic via their website's donation page. They will choose to spend it wherever the need exists. Thanks!

When our friend's mum heard that we were playing at his sister's birthday party, she said 'You tell those guys their souls have a home'. Thank you, Mrs Manning. We hope so.
