|Project Partners||Yayasan EMKAY|
Providing bi-monthly dental services
Treated 104 patients over a course of 3 missions in the year 2010
Together with Yayasan EMKAY, MERCY Malaysia started the Kg. Sungai Tiang outreach project to supplement the work of Ministry of Health of Malaysia in providing a more complete health care service to the residents of Kg. Sungai Tiang. The project’s main focus is to provide bi-monthly dental services as it was the main gap that we identified. The team focuses mainly on providing dental treatment to the beneficiaries as well as conducting basic dental hygiene education. MERCY Malaysia’s outreach clinic in Kg. Sungai Tiang has been received well by teachers of the local secondary school who brought their students for screening and treatment.
