ACTNews, NORTH JAKARTA – The hot weather in the coastal area of Jakarta welcomed the arrival of ACT’s ambulance in the courtyard of Jami Attaubah Mosque, Muka Hamlet, Ancol Village, Pademangan District, North Jakarta. That Friday (10/29/2021), ACT would carry out free health services to the residents.

A representative of Humanity Medical Services, Dr. Diti Hardianty Yarika explained that a total of 100 residents of Muka Hamlet consisting of the elderly, impoverished people, widows, and orphans enthusiastically participated in ACT’s health services.

She continued, the event was an effort by ACT to reach underprivileged people who barely receive medical facilities due to financial difficulty. 

“Many of the patients are diagnosed with chronic illness such as hypertension, diabetes, and joint disease,” said Dr. Siti Hardianty Yarika.

Humanity Medical Services was also assisted by students of the State University of Jakarta through their program “UNJ Mengabdi 2021”. The students actively took part in the registration and data collecting process for the Muka Hamlet residents.

Alhamdulillah, in this ‘UNJ Mengabdi’ program, we partner with ACT’s Humanity Medical Services. We decided to partner with them as ACT is a trusted organization and well-known among the community. It is also in line with our vision which is to serve from the heart for more meaningful change,” said UNJ Mengabdi Health Officer, Chitra Rahmawati.[]
