Doctors and nurses from Indonesia will conduct a free health clinic so migrant workers from their country in Hong Kong and Macau can get medical checks between July 29 and August 5.
The clinic has been arranged by the Indonesian Consulate General in Hong Kong, Indonesia’s Mayapada Hospital and the Tahir Foundation.
Indonesian workers will be able to get general medical check-ups of their blood pressure, blood sugar level, uric acid, cholesterol, a pap smear, as well as breast cancer early detection, according to a statement on the consulate’s Facebook page.
The clinic will be held at the consulate’s Ramayana Room in Causeway Bay in Hong Kong and at the Caritas Mong Ha Activity Center on the 4th floor of Pou Fung industrial building on Rua de Francisco Xavier Pereira.
The clinic will be open from 10am till 5pm in Hong Kong and 1pm to 5pm on August 4 and 10am to 5pm the next day in Macau.
Due to its restricted time, the clinic will serve a maximum of 100 people each day in Hong Kong and up to 50 people on the first day and 100 people on the second day in Macau.
This will be the first time the consulate has arranged free medical check-ups for Indonesians in Macau.
There are about 170,000 Indonesians in Hong Kong, most of them maids doing domestic work, plus more than 6,000 Indonesians working currently in Macau.
