After the jade mine collapse

This week, Doh Athan takes an emotional visit to the village of Wekha in Kachin State’s Hpakant Township to witness the aftermath of a jade mine collapse that killed at least 172 people in July.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast that looks at human rights issues. It’s produced by Frontier with media partners from around the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle. The podcast is supported by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
