The Pandaw Charity – entirely sponsored by donations from Pandaw passengers and a profit share from Pandaw River Expeditions – was established following Myanmar’s Cyclone Nargis in 2008, when the Pandaw ships converted to floating hospitals to allow crews to offer life-saving care.
Since then, the charity has helped build more than 12 schools and currently operates seven medical clinics in middle Myanmar, which provide an average of 5000 free treatments each month, thanks to a full-time team of 20 medics, paramedics and pharmacists.
Here are some incredible images by well-known travel photographer Rick Senley, showcasing the positive effects the charity is having on the community.
