goodmorningpapua.com – This country has lost one of the best doctors. A health worker who swore to serve in the inland of Papua, Tigor Silaban, has passed away.
Tigor, who was committed to making doctors a service, not a profession to earn money, died on Saturday (6/8/2021). The man who was born in Bogor on April 1, 1953, died of a corona virus infection. God granted Tigor’s wish, which was to spend the rest of his life in Lanny Jaya Regency, Papua.
PB Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) confirmed the information. Tigor is the son of Friedrich Silaban, the architect chosen to design the Istiqlal Mosque.
Tigor’s spirit turned down to his son. One of his three children who work as doctors also makes the hinterland as a place of devotion.
“This father’s name is Dr. Tigor Silaban, he is an example of an exemplary doctor who sincerely devotes himself to the Papuan people. This father has a doctor’s son and is now working in the interior, even though he could have tried to place his child in a more comfortable area,” said the owner of the @jayapuraupdate account via his tweet.
“Goodbye doctor Tigor Silaban. Tanah Papua is grateful for the sincere service. Your job is done. See you in the eternal kingdom,” he continued.
Tigor is one of the sons of the legendary architect who once designed the Istiqlal Mosque and the National Monument, Friedrich Silaban. The first time he practiced in Papua, he was placed in Oksibil, which is a red area or danger zone.
