Some pictures THE PEOPLE WE ARE HELPING WITH a little 1$ per day
This 1.- per day is precious. With this, we will be able to provide lasting and concrete support to hundreds of people and their families every year!
The Foundation uses a combination of practical and innovative tactics to implement development programs, public education, educational campaigns, advocacy campaigns and humanitarian assistance in disasters and conflicts.
This daily gift will allow people and children to access concrete solutions, in order to improve their social, educational and medical living conditions through innovative and inspiring projects. From the construction of schools in forgotten rural areas, dispensaries or hospitals, to projects for the empowerment of women …
Examples of what we can do with 1.- per day: Sanitation, toilets, feminine hygiene, access to drinking water, access to electricity, access to medical care, getting more children to school…
We can also support and develop projects aimed at creating opportunities for all generations, children, young adults, the elderly. The foundation aims to rebalance social inequalities in order to restore the autonomy of all communities of people. We are creating a fairer and more equitable future for all.
To give 1.- per day is to participate in all of our ongoing projects and actions. It is to give what to eat, drink, wash, be entertained too. A school for learning. Medical care for those who need it! This small 1.- will help them to access drinking water, to electricity to study, to better education, to an healthy lifestyle, energy in line with nature, and much more. And to improve access to education, health and better living together!
Everywhere in Indonesia, the majority of people have no access to health and medical care
90% of people don’t have health insurance. Indonesia’s health system is failing to provide even the most basic care to vast swathes of the population. Many who can not afford doctors’ fees often receive no treatment at all, while the wealthy fly abroad for a check-up. The system is plagued by under-funding, decentralization, lack of qualified staff, rising medical costs, and outdated medical equipment.
The health system desperately needs improvement, and there are no laws that protect the patient. For most of Indonesia’s more than 262 million inhabitants, even the lowest quality healthcare is often inaccessible. Where we work, in Easter par on Indonesia, some islands or remote mountain villages can be inaccessible for months at a time during the monsoon season. However « free » medical care facilities exist, but generally, these structures are not sufficiently equipped with medical equipment, medical goods, or drugs. Also, very often, they don’t hire enough staff.
These structures can not support patients for severe or complicate cases, then, they are referred to hospitals that are too expensive for an immense majority of the population. Indonesian hospitals are even known to keep patients “hostage” until family members can settle their bills.
Indonesia has the fifth-highest number of stunted children in the world – In Indonesia, 22.8 million people every day are unable to meet their dietary requirements!
Access to a portion of sufficient food and access to medical care remains a growing problem in Indonesia, despite a growing economy. More than one out of every three children (or 37%) are stunted. That means 9.5 million children under five are malnourished and don’t have any access to Health Care.
More than three million (or 12%) of children under five years of age in Indonesia suffer from wasting. Almost two out of every three children under two years of age, (or 57%), in rural areas are anaemic.
in Indonesia, country of 268,2 Mio people: 25.1 million Indonesians still live below the poverty line | 20.9% of the entire population remains vulnerable to falling into poverty, as their income hovers marginally above the national poverty line | 37.2% of children under 5 are stunted. Only 42% of children aged less than six months are exclusively breastfed, and only 36% of children consume appropriate complementary food.
Malnutrition costs dozens of millions of $US annually, due to lost productivity as the result of poor education standards and diminishing physical capability. This is why you can help them with a little $1.- per day! This thanks to our access to water projects, electricity, education in healthy living, harmonious power, and of course provide improved access to education, health and live better together!
In Indonesia, 71 million people lack access to improved sanitation and 28 million people lack access to safe water
With a population of 264 million people, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and claims Southeast Asia’s largest economy. The capital, Jakarta, continues to expand as an international hub; however, rural communities and residents of informal settlements in urban areas struggle in terms of poor health and infrastructure. For many households, water sources are distant, contaminated or expensive, and household sanitation is unaffordable.
Nearly 28 million Indonesians lack safe water and 71 million lack access to improved sanitation facilities. Fortunately, there is a growing microfinance sector serving low-income households across the country, and they are recognizing that financing for water supply and sanitation is a growing need.
In Indonesia and around the world, people are navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, and millions are striving to endure this crisis with an added challenge. They lack access to life’s most critical resource – water. Now more than ever access to safe water is critical to the health of families in Indonesia.
Water is a matter of concern to us at the Fair Future Foundation: Our humanitarian responses, our campaigns, and our long-term initiatives to help families improve their incomes, reduce their vulnerability to disasters, and defend their rights. Our job is to ensure equitable access to water in quantity and quality, which prevents disease and sustains lives and livelihoods; reduce environmental health risks by managing sanitation safely and with dignity; and involving women and men in water and sanitation resource management and safe hygiene practices to maximise benefits for their communities.
With 1.- per day we can solve many problems, including solutions to give clean water for a family
One in four (1/4) health centres in the world do not have access to water, a danger in the face of Covid and other diseases. This proportion increases considerably in arid and economically disadvantaged regions, such as eastern Indonesia in East Sumba where we are located. This is the case with almost all of the few health centres available and opens here in rural areas where we work. Of course, this exposes healthcare personnel and patients to a higher risk of infection with Covid-19 and all other forms of illness, which by far does not allow the application of hygiene measures, even more basic.
For example, here in Sumba, water is a real general problem. We must therefore think of solutions other than those called “traditional”. And this is also what we are all working on together and you can accompany us, all of you as much as you are.
- Mbinu Dita – since August 2020 we are rebuilding a school and community centre in a very rural area of East Sumba. Thanks to this project, 100 children will soon return to school. It will also be the heart of our activities and projects with this community which counts about 300 families. We can’t stay on-site for more than two nights for logistical reasons there is no access to water and electricity;
- Hence, Rumah Kambera is a central and indispensable point in this long-term project to organise, plan and manage all of Mbinu Dita’s project from there;
- First Aid Kit – A project that aims to bring first aid kits to every school in East Sumba. Indeed, due to geolocation and the terrain, rural areas of Sumba do not have access to primary health care. For example, a simple scratch on foot (children and adults alike are mostly barefoot) can quickly become infected and become a significant injury. To prevent this, Kawan Baik Indonesia and Fair Future Foundation will provide first aid kits to more than 40 schools as well as train teachers on primary care treatment;
- Charis Schools – Access to education and knowledge. In collaboration with a network of volunteers and teachers from “Charis” foundation, we will organise training, conferences on subjects related to education, nutrition or health which will then be transmitted and taught in forty schools of East and West Sumba;
- Access to water – Rumah Kambera will also make it easy to collaborate with experts, knowledge sharing and to study needs. One of the main points is the lack of access to water; difficulties to rely on rain-water; we, therefore, wish to research and develop by using the resources of the island, ways to access safe and clean water. It is a long-term project that requires a “base camp” and suitable and functional premises;
- Let us go where no one goes – In the most inaccessible territories, live thousands of people who do not have access to the most basic needs in order to ensure them a healthier life, or basic medical care, access to drinking water so as not to be ill, or a source of light in order to read or study for children. This will also and above all allow us to provide medical care and take the children or even a doctor or a dentist in the nearest town which is more than hours away from where the foundation is active. A vehicle will allow the foundation to be able to get there by bringing equipment and this in safety for our volunteers and specialized collaborators;
- Permaculture – One of the greatest assets of this house is the land it sits on; large and suitable for cultivation, we will create a garden in collaboration with permaculture experts; the harvests will allow us to cook for the volunteers and the surrounding community. We will also organise training on nutrition, permaculture, experiment and find answers on how to cultivate this calcareous soil and adapt to the climate of the island where it rains only two months a year.
Rumah Kambera will be the heart of this project; preparation, teacher training and follow-ups will be done in this “base camp”.
