PROVIDING CLEAN WATER TO ALL THOSE WHO NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS
Fair Future, Kawan Baik Indonesia, and the Indonesian Red Cross are starting a program to provide access to drinking water to 42 villages that do not have access to clean water, nor to sanitation solutions. Recall that in Indonesia, 71 million people do not have access to improved sanitation and 28 million people do not have access to drinking water. These numbers are increasing dramatically in the rural and outermost regions where we operate.
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.
In eastern Indonesia where we are located, more than two out of four health centers do not have access to water, a danger in the face of Covid and other diseases. This is the case for almost all of the few health centers available and which are opening here in the rural areas where we operate. Of course, this exposes healthcare workers and patients to a higher risk of infection with Covid-19 and all other forms of the disease, which by far does not allow the application of hygiene measures!
The flash flood and hurricane SEROJA, which occurred on 4 and 5 April 2021 in East Sumba Regency, harmed all aspects of social life, which included:
- The source of clean water that the community needs is polluted and unusable due to flood mud sediments;
- Existing wells are dry and families/communities no longer have access to clean water;
- The health of people, children, and other vulnerable people is gradually deteriorating;
- The threat of the dry season which begins at the time of this writing, and which will last between 8 and 10 months, is another problem that is added to those already existing;
- People are navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, and millions are striving to endure this crisis with an added challenge. Now more than ever access to safe water is critical to the health of families in Indonesia;
Following the identification of the problems, the main activity to be carried out is the implementation of a program to provide drinking water and toilets, which will help people to resume so-called “normal” activities.
The target location of the drinking water supply project is in areas with major limitations. The implementation of this program is designed to involve the whole community of active role through the group COMMUNITY-BASED CATASTROPHE PREPAREDNESS.
Based on the results of the assessment carried out by the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) in Sumba Timur and the analysis of the actions of Kawan Baik and the Fair Future Foundation, this project proposal will focus on meeting the needs in drinking water and sanitation for affected communities.
- Clean water is essential for staying healthy;
- Clean water is essential to heal, grow, eat, drink, wash;
- In order to meet the extremely urgent needs for drinking water and sanitation for communities and families affected by the disaster;
- Have adequate public toilets so that families and communities can readjust to a healthier lifestyle;
- Meet the needs of every living being, that of having access to clean water;
- Improve the quality of life with good sanitation for the communities;
- Restore access to water to villages, families, and communities which have been deprived of it since a disaster;
- A total of 39 families or approximately 250 people in Mauliru will have access to clean water;
- 2 toilets meet health requirements well and will be used by 39 families in the village of Mauliru. The WASH installation becomes a means/medium for learning to implement a healthy lifestyle;
Thank you so much for helping us.

Giving some of my time for a field mission is something I want to do. I don't mind living far from everything and without comfort. Living an authentic and unique experience with people living in rural areas of eastern Indonesia is an idea that I really like.
