To the editor: The recent article by Drs. Soffer and Wilde ( 1 ) concerning medical relief efforts at the Thai-Kampuchean border was read with interest by the medical community here in Aranyaprathet. Unfortunately, it did not provide an accurate picture of the work we do. The vast majority of persons working here are professionals who have made a long-term commitment to this relief effort. Drs. Soffer and Wilde worked in Site 2 for approximately 1 month. Their perspectives and conclusions were clearly influenced by such a short stay.
A few updates and corrections are in order. In October 1985
