AMDA Emergency Bulletin II: Emergency Relief for Sumatra Earthquake


As of Oct.6th, AMDA's medical mission for Sumatra earthquake is engaged in several relief initiatives.

1) AMDA Indonesia is currently assisting surgical operations in Jameer General Hospital in Padang City. AMDA supplied much needed medical equipments to fulfill the shortage of such commodities.

2) On Oct.4th, a team of medical personnel from AMDA Headquarters and AMDA Indonesia conducted mobile clinic in Pariamang (59km from Padang.) In cooperation with a local NGO, mobile clinic was held in two villages, Kanpong Koto and Kolon Parit. The team diagnosed approximately 100 patients in each village and found common cases such as bone fractures and external wounds due to fallen objects, headache and dizziness, respiratory diseases (asthma, pneumonia), chronic diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure), cataract, parasite infection, and skin diseases.
