Access to doctors and medicine is something that people in the western world often take for granted. A visit to the slums as part of a medical team for Handle With Care International really puts things in perspective.
The medical team are part of a local clinic called Rumah Sehat Madani, which works on the ground with Handle With Care International to provide mobile medical clinics, visiting urban slum areas with doctors, nurses and pharmacists to minister to those for whom medical aid is often out of reach. Residents are given a full medical check-up and appropriate medical treatments - ranging from vitamin supplements to asthma medications and antibiotics.
