KOTA KINABALU: Over 300 Kiulu villagers are set to benefit from free medical services through a medical camp scheduled for February 25 in Kampung Tudan.

Organised by Tuaran district hospital in collaboration with Tuaran’s Malaysian Red Crescent Society and Kiulu Assemblyman Service Centre, the programme aims to enhance healthcare accessibility.

It will provide comprehensive medical services, including general medical check-ups, eye examinations and dental screenings – all at no cost to the community.

On Wednesday, Tuaran hospital director Dr Lydiarita M. Marajin met with Kiulu Assemblyman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai to brief him on the programme.

Joniston expressed his support for the programme, emphasising its critical role in delivering the much-needed healthcare services to rural folks.

And, he also highlighted that the programme was not confined to Kampung Tudan but would also benefit neighbouring villagers in Poring, Sungoi, Romokon, and Baraba, among others.

Some 100 skilled medical practitioners, including doctors, dentists and optometrists as well as dedicated volunteers from non-governmental organisations would be involved to ensure the success of the programme.

The last medical camp held in Kampung Tudan was prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile Joniston hoped that more such medical camps wouild be organised in remote villages in Kiulu such as Wasai and Gonipis.
