Maung Aye and his daughters in the Lep Per Her camp. <br />

He lost his leg two years ago after stepping on a landmine on the outskirts of his village, laid by the DKBA (Democratic Karen Buddhist Army, a Karen splinter organisation allied with the Burmese military).  <br />
<br />
Hearing the explosion, his uncle ran to help him, but stepped on another one and was killed.  <br />
<br />
Many landmine victims die from their wounds due to the area's remoteness and the lack of treatment facilities.
