This project proved to be extremely challenging due to the diverse issues in the area, from civil conflict, the Asian Tsunami, malaria infection, and the high number of physically handicapped.
MFLF therefore reinforced the public health system, providing treatment and prevention for malaria in Lamteuba and neighboring villages. A number of volunteers were brought to Thailand for training workshops with the Prostheses Foundation of HRH the Princess Mother so they could lead the training of the handicapped as well as medical personnel within their own communities.
To improve the quality of life of the villagers, MFLF set up the Sustainable Rural Development Center at Maheng Village which was promoted as a one-stop learning and demonstration center on irrigation, agriculture, livestock, and public hygiene. It is now a learning center for study visits by various delegations.
