ACTNews, SOUTH JAKARTA – Humanity Medical Services from Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) again held an action in West Cilandak Village, Cilandak District, South Jakarta, last Friday (22/10/2021).

The beneficiaries of this action were scavengers. “We are coming here to provide medical service for residents who cannot afford to go to the hospital. We believe many people in this village need medical services, especially scavengers,” explained Dr. Rassy, a Humanity Medical Services doctor.

Medical services provided were direct consultations with doctors and the provision of medicines. “If patients suffer from diabetes, gout, and cholesterol, they can be checked immediately, so that they are handled properly," added Dr. Rassy.
