The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) is proud to announce the Relieve Pay Forward initiative launched by High School Senior student Hongju L., in collaboration with Global Doctors Asia and the UNHCR.
The project began in 2020 at the start of Malaysia’s first Movement Control Order, and the team finally launched their webpage on the Global Doctors Asia site in November this year. A ceremony to officiate the launch happened at the Hyatt House, Mont Kiara, on November 19, 2021. Relieve is a team founded by HongJu with co-founders Dokyung K. and Jimin. L., ISKL High School seniors who are like-minded and passionate about providing affordable healthcare services to vulnerable minority populations like refugees. They initiated the Pay Forward System to complement the existing refugee healthcare provided by Global Doctors clinics in hopes of creating a stable healthcare system for minority groups in Malaysia.
It takes a pebble to create a ripple and one person to make a difference. Let us be inspired by the admirable spirit of the Relieve Team and hope that their ripples of kindness will reach out to the many people in need of affordable healthcare services.
