Premier Clinic believes in giving back to society. We are happy to do our part in the betterment of society, so on 4 July 2014, we collaborated with Pertiwi Food Kitchen to help the needy.
We volunteered at mobile clinics in Chow Kit, Masjid India and Masjid Negara from 8.30pm to 12 midnight. Our doctors and staffs provided medical consultation and treatment. Patients who received free medical treatments comprised of the poor, beggars, drug addicts and sex workers.
There were over 50 patients seen on that night. Most patients had cough and cold, muscle aches and infected wounds. They were prescribed the necessary medicines including vitamins, painkillers and antibiotics, besides creams and solutions for dressing.
Amongst the more serious cases seen were bone cancer, infected scabies and undiagnosed uncontrolled hypertension.
The volunteers also helped distribute free hot meals such as rice, chicken, bread and drinks. More than 200 people benefited from the free meals.
Our doctors and staff had a surprise visit from three Kuala Lumpur members of parliament, including Nurul Izzah and Teresa Kok, who came to support the charity work.
Dr Chen Tai Ho of Premier Clinic says: “When helping those who are down, the more we give, the more we gain”.
