The rural island villages of Indonesia have long been suffering from an extensive deprivation in Medical facilities, resources and basic medical care. Whether from paediatric to geriatric patients; the general village populations across these islands suffer from some form of medical issue - be it ascites (abdominal fluid retention) to malnutrition or cataracts, many of these healthcare issues could be easily resolved with the right medical aid and medication; something of which is sparse across the islands but abundant in the western world. Moreover, the poverty these villagers suffer hinder them from travelling to mainland to seek such medical care and attention; accelerating the deterioration of their health.
Every year, Taipei Medical University (Taiwan) collaborate with medical students and professionals worldwide, to travel to these rural villages over the summer and deliver health checks, prescriptions of vital medications and further medical supplies to improve the quality of healthcare. Many of these individuals suffer unnecessarily due to their failing health system. Hence, why I want to pursue such mission for 3 weeks in make-shift clinics to alleviate the extent of suffering many of these villagers face.
As seen in the pictures, these are some images of the most recent medical mission in Indonesia comprising of a team of Doctors, dentists, heath care assistants, medical students and other First aid personnel. For a long time I have been aware of the suffering these individuals endure, and it has been my passion to help in any way I can. Thus, my next medical Mission shall be in Indonesia- Surabaya, to be part of a team of Medical experts to deliver healthcare to the villagers suffering from poor healthcare to its extreme.
There is a current lack of knowledge and understanding with regards to health in this region; some of which can prove to be fatal or decrease their quality of life greatly. With a team of experts, I genuinely believe via simple procedures and medication; we can treat many of these conditions and therefore vastly improve their quality of life.
With your help and contributions, the money fundraised shall purely go towards facilitating the transport and logistics within the islands between villages; purchasing medications in bulk to be distributed across to the villagers in need and to purchase the necessary medical and surgical equipment so that a greater number of villagers can be examined and adequately treated. As seen in the images above, it is evident the patients are in desperate need of medical aid, something which we in the western world largely take for granted. Having performed medical missions before, I have no doubt that every penny fundraised will go a long way in helping these individuals and I shall to the best of my ability, ensure they receive the best quality of care possible with your help! :)
Thank you! :)
