Risking their lives, young eager children swim across the Moei River: the great river that flows northwards separating Myanmar (Burma) from Thailand. Each year new waves of child fighters enter Thailand to partake in the national sport - Muay Thai. Many enter legally, but others take more questionable and dangerous routes, but all share the same reasons for this difficult and lonely journey - to earn as much money as possible fighting in the stadiums in order to send it back home to their families. In one fight, these determined children can earn twice the adult daily minimum wage in their own country, Myanmar.
There are an estimated 603,000+ people that have recently fled across the border from neighbouring Myanmar.
