At Heritage Line we see tourism as avenue of broadening people’s cultural horizons. Because some of the remote riverside villages we visit have no access to the outside world, we also feel it is our duty to support these impoverished local communities. It is with this philosophy that Heritage Line provides medical services along the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Rivers.

Very few ships have the ability to navigate the shallow waters of the Chindwin. The absence of infrastructure makes this region isolated from tourism and, more importantly, from basic medical attention and supplies. To this day, Heritage Line is the only free healthcare provider to these villages. The mission of the free mobile clinic is simple: perform a general checkup and diagnostics, followed by the distribution of medicine.

So far the operation has been successful, with Heritage Line’s mobile clinic treating thousand of patients since its inception in 2016 along the waterways of Myanmar.
