Update from Lombok: Help continues

2018/08/17

In the meanwhile our partner organization Karya Alpha Omega Foundation is operating with two medical teams in the East of the island. Last Thursday, the practitioners could treat 340 people in Madayin Village and Bilok Petung.

"The majority of our patients came for the treatment of open wounds or fever infections", tells us Non Rawung, director of Alpha Omega. "But at the moment, we also come across other infectious diseases as well as high blood pressure quite often."

In the course of the seven days since the medical team had started to operate it could already treat up to 2.000 people. Rawung reports that they are planning to visit ten more villages in the coming week.

On top, further relief aid measures implemented with the support of humedica, such as the installation of temporary toilets as well as of drinking water pipelines are continuing.
