Among the volunteers were two medicine specialists, two gynecology doctors, one pediatrician, and four supporting nurses. On the previous day, four doctors generously volunteered their time and expertise to assist patients in need.
Overwhelmingly, more than 500 patients received medical consultations on Day 2, with 212 females and 107 children among them, while 310 patients received consultations from the four volunteer doctors on the previous day.
Free medicines, including sanitary pads and diapers, were distributed to all patients to address the scarcity of medicines as well as alleviate the financial burden of healthcare expenses on the victims of ethnic violence.
