As part of our commitment to improve the welfare of the farming communities that partner with us, PMA held free medical services in two East Nusa Tenggara villages for one week in October 2018.
Located in Alor Island, one of the small islands in East Nusa Tenggara province, these villages have limited sources and infrastructure and there was no proper medical facility to serve the residents. The week-long medical charity was a collaboration of PMA and the teams from Medical Relief International and Hand Foundation, organizations that aim to help developing countries through providing proper healthcare. The medical teams consisted of general practitioners, dentists and other medical specialists. For seven days in two villages we served approximately 2000 villagers from all ages who received everything from general check-up, dental works, free medicines, radiology and lab tests, and even minor surgeries.
This event was well received and appreciated not only by the communities we served, but also by the local government. PMA is looking forward to conduct other events and programs that will contribute to the increased well-being of these farmers and their families.
