The document of the month

November 2015

The Chee Hong chugs across Hong Kong’s busy harbour to tie up at Kowloon Public Pier. This little ship is a welcome sight on many of the small islands that spatter the South China Sea around Hong Kong. It serves as a floating dispensary or floating clinic, bringing health care to tiny communities, which would otherwise lack the services of a doctor, a nurse or a pharmacy.
