The Karen-015.jpg

Saw Gladdy, inventor and engineer, in the Mae La refugee camp, Thailand.

He has designed and plans to build a hydro-electric turbine to run from a waterfall deep in the Burmese jungle, which will provide electricity to a clinic that treats land-mine victims.

He was made an IDP at two years old, when he and his mother were forced out of their homes by the Burmese military.

After surviving in the jungle for a year, they found their way to a KNU (Karen National Union) camp where he was educated by his father.
