BCMF – B.K. Kee Patient House
The B.K. Kee Patient House in Chiang Mai is part of the larger Burma Children Medical Fund foundation, which, among other things, arranges medical care for poor migrants along the Thai/Burma border. The brainchild of  BCMF founder Kanchana Thornton, the house serves as a hostel for up to 24 patients and caregivers while they wait for (and recover from) treatment in local hospitals.
The patients, mainly children, suffer from neurological diseases such as spina bifida and hydrocephalus; physical deformities such as cleft palates and club feet; and a variety of other serious conditions, from severe burns to blood disorders to childhood cataracts.
CMIRC aims to ease the suffering by providing patients and caregivers with fresh fruit and other food weekly, toiletries for their hospital visits, and games and activities for those biding their time at the house. We also contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the physical facility. For more information on the BCMF, visit their website at: http://burmachildren.com/our-programs/children/
