Local Services 

 

Our goal is to achieve sustainability through local services, be it through our hospital visits, health checks, or workshops. As Hong Kong medical students, we aspire to cater to those in need within our proximity, while providing ourselves with experience-based knowledge.

Asylum Seekers & Refugees

While the exodus of refugees at volatile regions in the Middle East captivates global attention and concern, have we ever realised refugees might just be around us in our daily encounters? Currently, refugees and asylum seekers constitute a population of more than 10,000 people in Hong Kong. They are plagued with the same issues of stigmatisation and deprivation of human rights and access to resources like refugees in any part of the world; Specifically in healthcare, asylum seekers who are not yet officially registered as refugees, usually due to inefficient bureaucracy, cannot receive any government medical care. Even for registered refugees, the costs waived are just enough for routine consultations, instead of more advanced services like dental care or surgeries. Therefore, we currently work with Refugee Union, Hong Kong’s first refugee-led registered society, to offer health talks and rudimentary health checks to reassure them of their health statuses. We also aim to help refugees to recognise the healthcare resources they are entitled to and how to access them.

While the exodus of refugees at volatile regions in the Middle East captivates global attention and concern, have we ever realised refugees might just be around us in our daily encounters? Currently, refugees and asylum seekers constitute a population of more than 10,000 people in our community. They are plagued with the same issues of stigmatization, discrimination and deprivation of rights and access to resources like refugees in any part of the world. While such group might possibly pose various social problems, we believe, as a cosmopolitan and developed city, and for humane reasons, it is unjustifiable to deny this group of the basic right of health. As a result, Medical Outreachers has worked with Health in Action, a local NGO established by dedicated local medical professionals serving underprivileged groups, to offer health empowerment sessions to this vulnerable population. We provided rudimentary health checks to reassure them of their health statuses. We organised talks delivered by specialist doctors to addresses their specific health concerns. We briefed ASR individuals on their basic rights entitled and we escorted them to public hospitals in times of urgency to mediate miscommunications and conflicts between them and frontline staff. We need your support.
