I am thankful to Great Heart Charity Association for giving me a chance to provide Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) services for more than two and half years at Great Heart Community Centre.
Here, TCM services are catered mainly to underprivileged communities, namely low-income household individuals, lonely elderly, jobless people, and person with disabilities. Compared to the ordinary advantageous groups, they are living in relatively poorer conditions for various reasons, hence it’s quite difficult for them to cope with the society.
Some of the patients, who have been suffering from chronic illness for many years, have come to GHCA for treatment out of economic consideration. The fact that these patients can receive Chinese medicine treatment such as pulse diagnosis, acupuncture, Tuina massage, and cupping at such a comfortable treatment place goes to show that GHCA’s contribution cannot be ignored.
Being a TCM medical practitioner, I feel my own pressure in carrying out this social responsibility, but I’m confident that I can unleash my own strengths by doing something more practical for these underprivileged groups. I couldn’t be prouder of this.
