Thank you again to everyone who shares my vision. It really is humbling to see so many supporters join in for this cause, especially since recent See More

THE STORY:

*** Untuk verifikasi donasi ke Poliklinik Pratama Gotong Royong, silahkan telpon Dr. Naniek Erawati 081331593330 ***

Imagine making almost $1.50 for one patient's doctor visit, to you, the doctor. Imagine how difficult your life would be if you put the health of other patients above your own need for money. This is exactly how the Pratama Gotong Royong Klinik Medical Clinic in Surabaya, Indonesia functions on a day-to-day basis. Feel free to watch the short film I created! 

Hi! I’m a high-schooler here in the U.S. who has volunteered year after year at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and its Bayview Medical Campus. Aside from learning medical background info here, I paid close attention to the medical ethics and procedures carried out; from medical personnel’s meticulous eye for sterility in the Operating Room to their skillful use of only the most advanced medical equipment, my jaw has never dropped lower than it had when I volunteered in one of a third-world country’s medical clinics this past summer.

Pratama Gotong Royong is a very small medical clinic in need of funds to sustain its survival. Running the center is a team of incredibly driven and personable medical staff, from lab assistants, nurses, pharmacists, to physicians. Every day, doctors especially sacrifice higher pay stubs so that patient costs to medicine and lab fees are more affordable.

Converted from Indonesian Rupiahs to USD, each patient visit cashes in a whopping $1.19 (approximately) for the attending doctor! During my stay in Surabaya, I had the immense pleasure of volunteering for Gotong Royong for weeks, where I took patients’ vitals (blood pressure specifically), grounded tablet medicine to powder to then package for children’s medications, and assisted with a variety of other duties.

However, the lack of modern medical practices shocked me. Striving to better my new family, I scheduled to talk to the clinic's center director, Dr. Ignatius Supit, and I want to encourage all of us to be in the giving mood this holiday season and donate to fund just Gotong Royong’s lab costs and medicine costs.

PLEASE NOTE: 100% of Donations will go directly to the clinic director Dr. Ignatius Supit when I return to Indonesia.

Thank you so much everyone and enjoy the holidays!
