FPMPAM Sarawak Medical Camp 2.3

  1. 1. The 2nd Camp was at Kg Serikin, about 4 Km from the Indonesian border. Our logistic partners found a large multi-purpose hall about a basketball size, set next to the Sunday Market ( you can see the empty stalls where the banners are hung.
  2. 2. This large hall was more than adequate. Our logistic partner even has wheelchairs on standby. It was used a few times
  3. 3. The interesting decision was to set the dental clinic on a stage at one side of the large multi-purpose hall. To provide privacy, we had to use some cloth to form a curtain. Our Impian volunteers were quite imaginative
  4. 4. The Ophthalmologist requested for a dark room So we set him on the omnly room at one end of the hall, using curtains to make it dark. The Snellen’s chart was also in that room so we had to use portable lamps.
  5. 5. The screening stations remained the same The girls worked hard
  6. 6. They came. Young and old. Able and disable. The wheelchair proved useful
