This week, Doh Athan travels to Chin State, one of the most remote parts of Myanmar, to understand the difficulties faced by people living with disabilities in the mountainous state.
There are some organisations working on the issue in the state, but they struggle to make an impact because of limited funding, while government spending for disability issues is very low.
