Heading 1

For two medical volunteers at an underground clinic in Hong Kong, their work is symptomatic of a wider rift in society. Hui and Mo (not their real names) have seen the darker side of the city’s five months of unrest: broken bones, chemical burns, sprains, swollen and discoloured bruises, arising from skirmishes between protesters and police.

In any given week, the medics – who operate via an anonymous Telegram channel – receive 30 to 50 patients, with numbers rising to nearly 100 depending on the severity of the clashes. According to the two women, patients are aged anywhere between 15 and 40 years old, and up to 80 per cent of them are frontline protesters.
