Dr Sasa Myanmar Biography, Wiki, Age, Profession, Wife, Career, Networth, Family & more: The founder of Health & Hope Myanmar (HHM), Dr Sasa, was born in a remote village called Lailenpi, in western Chin State. His grandmother gave him the name Sasa which means ‘higher and higher’. Life for villagers in the region was difficult, with little or no healthcare facilities, limited education opportunities and chronic food shortages.
As a boy, Sasa saw his parents taken for forced labour, and girls in his village raped. He witnessed the death of friends from preventable illnesses such as diarrhoea, and saw many women and babies die during childbirth. He was deeply moved and challenged by all he experienced, and dreamed of becoming a doctor.
Sasa walked for many days to reach high school in Yangon, the first child from his village ever to attend. On his return, his community sold their livestock in order to send him to college in India, and later sent him abroad to study medicine. Despite having to learn three new languages to gain this education, Sasa graduated at the top of his class.
In 2007, with one year remaining of his medical studies, the bamboo species, melocanna baccifera, blossomed in Chin State. This event, known locally as the ‘Mautam’, occurs only once every 40-50 years. The fruit produced from the blossoming bamboo attracted hordes of rats, who quickly multiplied in number. After devouring the bamboo fruit, the rats turned to the villagers’ crops, destroying rice and corn, causing a famine that lasted for five years.
Though still a medical student, Sasa mounted a response to the famine, treating over 3,500 patients through a makeshift clinic in Chapi, on the India/Myanmar border. Through his effective lobbying, with help from friends in the UK, funds were secured for cross-border food aid, which reached over 120,000 people.
