Episode 34: Surviving in the jungle

This week we hear the amazing survival story of 60-year-old Jan Nding Htu Bu and his family, who were forced to hide in the jungle for two months due to fighting that is ravaging Myanmar’s Kachin state.

They were forced to endure treacherous living conditions, dangerous ravines and blood-sucking leeches as they battled to stay alive.
