"Surely it will be arranged by the needs there. If two weeks were less, we would take the volunteers and send another volunteer because we also need to adjust the works here," explained Dr. Viva Maiga Mahliafa Noor, Head of Public Relations and Partnership of UMM Hospital.
Viva said, UMM Hospital always sends volunteers when there is a disaster due to the vision of Islamic Hospital that upholds the humanity vision. Handling this disaster, continued Viva, the volunteers did not consider the benefits at all. "As long as the victims can be treated, they are relieved," Viva said when interviewed on Wednesday (10/10) afternoon.
"In addition to treating injured victims, they also help psychological disorders so as the earthquake victims can stay motivated and survive," explained Viva. The departure of these volunteers is under the supervision of the General Health Advisory Council (MPKU) Muhammadiyah Central Executive.
