Description : Fighting in northern Myanmar has forced thousands of people to flee their homes since 2011. In a camp for displaced people near the town of Mytkhyina, Maung Htun is learning an unusual skill – amber polishing. The beautiful strings of golden beads bring in enough money for him to feed his family and feel independent again. But the price he gets for the beads depends on the quality of the amber – as he explains. First of a three-part portrait series on beneficiaries of Red Cross support.
