Problem

As the target group listed above often struggles to make ends need, especially those from the urban poor, they tend to neglect their health and focus more on earning money to survive and feed their family. Most would choose not to seek treatment even when in ill health due to the fear of spending money for the treatment or on medicines. The availability of a free treatment will at least provide them with a peace of mind when they fall ill, with the knowledge that they could seek treatment at GHCC via the program. Meanwhile, for those from old folks’ home, the program can provide an alternative treatment avenue to supplement the old folk’s western medicine treatment, if any, which will further improve or enhance their physical wellbeing.

Solution

We will provide free TCM Check Up sessions at our Great Heart Community Centre (GHCC) to cater to the target beneficiary. Our program will be run on every Tuesday and Wednesday at GHCC. The time for each session and the TCM Practitioners handling each session is as follow: Tuesday Time: 9.00am to 11.00am TCM Practitioner: Dr Yong Kai Jian Wednesday Time: 10.30am to 12.30pm TCM Practitioner: Dr Soh Shao Qi

Target Beneficiary

This program targets underprivileged families, urban poor families, and old folks home residents living around the Teluk Pulai and Klang area. With each session able to accommodate 12 beneficiaries seeking treatment, the physical wellbeing of up to 1,248 beneficiaries can be taken care of annually through this program. As this community is living within the vicinity of our community centre, it falls within our target service area. By being able to take care of the physical wellbeing of this community would also mean that they could continue to be employed and stay productive, which will then contribute back to the society and economy in the long run.

We will measure based on the total number of free treatments that we have provided from the program, as well as from the two TCM practitioner doctor's feedback on the health improvement of the beneficiaries undergoing treatment through this program.
