On The Red Dot: Friends for a Better World - Healthcare Specialists Programme

Channel NewsAsia and Singapore’s Channel 5 broadcast the ‘On the Red Dot: Friends for a Better World’ TV series in 2016 features Singaporeans who are on a mission to do good beyond our borders, while forging meaningful friendships along the way. We journey to different countries each week and discover how these Singapore citizen ambassadors, with the help of the Singapore International Foundation, are turning their dreams to change the world, into a reality.

This episode features Dr Loh Cheng, a dedicated Singaporean doctor who uprooted his whole family to Kunming, China to help patients who lack access to good medical care. Making frequent trips to Nujiang in the Yunnan, he helps the poor villagers with medical advice/treatment and find sponsors if they cannot afford their medical fees.
