ACTNews, GAZA – Over the past month, 1,400 Palestinians have received free health services from the Indonesian clinic in Rafah. Firdaus Guritno from Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT)'s Global Humanity Response explained that the patients are treated by the healthcare workers at the Indonesian Medical Clinic that consist of general practitioners and medical specialists such as orthopedic doctors, cardiologists, and neurosurgeons.

"This clinic is equipped with facilities such as surgical rooms and emergency rooms for critical patients,” explained Firdaus, Thursday (11/25/2021).

Firdaus added that both the medical treatments and medicines are free of charge. “The patients who come to the clinics are grateful to receive free medical services. They could barely afford their daily meals, let alone going to medical facilities,” said Firdaus.
