NIA, TIMA provide health care to illegal immigrants

The National Immigration Agency (NIA)'s Hsinchu City Service Center and Tzu Chi International Medical Association (TIMA) on May 24 held a health lecture and provided free medical service to illegal immigrants’ awaiting repatriation.

Besides Eastern and Western medical services, the activity also prepared a full set of dental equipment, providing tooth cleanings and checkups. Dentists explained the tooth care information in simple ways which led the immigrants to pay attention about their tooth care. The activity fulfilled warm feelings so the illegal immigrants could temporarily forget harassment or repatriation.

The head of the Hsinchu City Service Center, Lu Chung-ren, said the free medical care cures the inmates’ pains mentally and physically. He expected the kindness would spread to every corner of the world through those new immigrant references.
