My First USG Service…..
Bandung (06/09) “This is my first experience on having USG check up” said Entin (35) “for my two first child, I didn’t do the check, cause I couldn’t afford the medical cost” as she waiting for the her turns in Free Maternity Installation, where she’s registered as member of Rumah Zakat beneficiaries.
The USG service has run weekly since last 2008. At first, we expand this service for non member, and the society respond with wonderful, in fact, we have to limit the waiting line since the number are more than our capacity. After couple months, as the membership of Free Maternity Service grows, we re-arrange the schedule of this service and prioritize the benefit of the USG for the member of Free Maternity first.
These kind of USG service are basic medical service for mothers and their baby, but even in the simple and modest type of USG will cost US $5 (IDR 50.000) per check up, this rate are twice their earning per day. That why the Free USG Service undoubtly will promote mothers and their baby to safe maternal process.
