ACTNews, GAZA - A number of patients began flocking to the Indonesian Clinic for Palestine, Monday (12/2). That day, the clinic, located in North Gaza, was opened to serve patients with injuries from the Great Return March.

The clinic, which is manned by seven medical personnel, operates six days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Gaza time. The Indonesian clinic provides free medical examinations and treatments for the Gazans. "Until now, the Indonesian Clinic for Palestine has been the only health service that provides free medical services and medicines for the people of Gaza," said Andi Noor Faradiba from the Global Humanity Response (GHR) - Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), Tuesday (12/3).

On its first day, the Indonesian Clinic for Palestine served 60-70 patients, the majority of which are wounded by Israeli attacks. According to Faradiba, the pharmacy department of the clinic also requires adequate medical supplies and dynamic circulation of the medicines in accordance with the needs of the patients in Gaza. "At the moment, ACT has supplied medical supplies for the next two months," explained Faradiba.

The Indonesian Medical Clinic for Palestine, which also provides orthopedic and vascular medical treatments, brings hope and is well-received by all governors in Gaza, especially to serve the wounded victims of Israeli attacks.

"The ACT Team in Gaza said that it would be very good if our clinic could also provide physiotherapy services for those recovering from injuries," said Faradiba.

At present there are seven medical personnel at the Indonesian Clinic, consisting of three medics, a pharmacist, and three administrative officers. "There is also a clinic manager, an orthopedist, a vascular doctor, a nurse, a pharmacologist, a receptionist, and an office-boy," Faradiba concluded. []
