interior of Sabah which have limited health accessibility due to
rough terrain condition, no roads and their socio-economic status.
In Sabah, MERCY Malaysia works with local partners such as
Sabah Parks and PACOS Trust to render the mission successful.
Each of the organizations will contribute their expertise such as
ensuring a translator of local languages, ranger, porter etc.
