Naam Clinic will open on Sundays starting April 4 at Wisma Tatt Khalsa, Jalan Raja Alang, a multipurpose complex under Gurdwara Sahib Tatt Khalsa Diwan, one of the oldest gurdwaras in the city capital of Malaysia.
“Many need help in this town. When patients need specialist help, for example, we can provide them the necessary documentation,” said Dr Mandeep Singh, one of the volunteer doctors at the clinic.
The group have spent nearly RM70,000 for clinic renovation and stocking it with medicines. Medicine cost is estimated to be RM8,000 per month.
The group has appealed to the public to donate for the cause.
The effort, undertaken by the group under the banner of Naam Association Malaysia, had been in pipeline for sometime now.
In a Facebook update in April 2014, they had announced that the gurdwara had provided its ‘prime retail outlet in Wisma Tatt Khalsa for the purpose of setting up the clinic at no cost’.
“We have a network of very capable doctors and specialists to lend in their services for the clinic at no cost,” it added.
The idea is to set up a charitable clinic to provide free consultation and medication for the less fortunate regardless of race and religion.
Aside from Dr Mandeep, the other doctors in the pioneering batch of volunteers are Dr Harveen Kaur, Dr Roshni Kaur, Dr Preempreet Kaur, Dr Sanjay, Dr Rupinder Singh and Dr Navinder Singh.
The clinic will operate on Sundays from 8am to 12 noon, and continue from 2-6pm. – ASIA SAMACHAR (8 March 2015)
