Rumah Kambera

“Rumah Kambera”; “Rumah” berarti tempat tinggal dan Kambera adalah nama kecamatan. Kami memilih kata “rumah” dengan sengaja, karena selain menjadi kantor masa depan kami di Sumba, ini juga akan menjadi tempat pertemuan, kegiatan berbagi, belajar mengajar, rumah singgah untuk relawan, tempat bertukar pikiran, ruang bermain, menemukan ide-ide inovatif, semua dengan visi bersama, yakni untuk meningkatkan kualitas hidup masyarakat yang tinggal di daerah Sumba Timur.

SUMBA PHOTO STORIES

Sebuah proyek pendampingan fotografi untuk menjadi media berekspresi dan bercerita melalui foto. Dimulai sejak Januari 2020, pelatihan telah dilaksanakan di dua sekolah, di dua desa, di bagian timur Sumba.

BANGUN MBINUDITA

sejak Agustus 2020 kami membangun kembali sekolah yang roboh terkoyak angin pada akhir tahun 2019. Dengan pembangunan ini, setiap tahunnya 65 hingga 100 anak dapat bersekolah dengan aman dan nyaman.

FIRST AID KIT

Sebuah proyek yang bertujuan memberikan pertolongan pertama melalui kotak P3K yang akan dibagikan ke setiap sekolah dan tenaga medis tradisional yang di dampingi tenaga Faskes di Sumba Timur.

SEKOLAH KAMPUNG

Sebuah proyek bersama Sekolah Charis Sumba. Dalam empat tahun terakhir, di bidang pendidikan, Sekolah Charis Sumba telah mendampingi 37 guru di 18 sekolah kampung terpencil, terutama sekolah PAUD dan kelas darurat di area Sumba timur.

AKSES AIR BERSIH

Salah satu masalah utama di Sumba Timur adalah terbatasnya akses untuk memperoleh air bersih. Umumnya masyarakat masih mengandalkan mata air, sumur, dan tampungan air hujan namun masih belum mencukupi kebutuhan pokok air.

KEBUN

Salah satu aset terbesar pada rumah ini, adalah lahan dimana rumah ini berdiri; areanya cukup luas dan cocok untuk bercocok tanam, kami akan membuat taman dan kebun.

Go where nobody goes, analyze needs, build wells, water reservoirs, provide medical care, food, something to have a better life!

Happy to announce also the departure in a few days, of another team of Fair Future and Kawan Baik foundations, via the road with our "Truck of Life", a truck dedicated to socio-medical activities in rural areas, in eastern Indonesia.

This movie: Distribution of vital goods in eastern Sumba, NTT, Indonesia. Shot with one of our cell phones, without editing and posted as is!

For years, we have for mission to develop, support, and create humanitarian programs and actions linked to education, training, and medical care. - Rumah Kambera in few words, what is it?

A workplace, social center, an open door for all. A home for them, for us.

The foundation develops and implements actions in eastern Indonesia (NTT) and notably in East Sumba. To do so, we decided to coordinate our actions from a very simple little house in a village near Waingapu called Lambanapu.

Rumah Kambera is its name. This -home- will be a place of coordination of our socio-medical, educational activities in favor of children, women, and communities in rural and peripheral regions where access to water, electricity, education, or health care are almost non-existent.

A place where everyone will be welcome to offer a helping hand, to propose an aid project, or to collaborate with the volunteers and collaborators of the Foundation as part of their activities and programs. Additionally, it will also be a place of exchange, conferences, training, and workshops, a public garden, a place to experiment with what's working and what doesn't. 

The foundation launches a fundraising campaign in this direction: Renovate the house using recycled materials, organise the first social activities and the development of this place.

Thank you very much for your help!

Make a donation for Rumah Kambera, a house with social projects to ensure their future and their health, here: https://actionforfairfuture.org/house-sumba/

On this picture taken on the 28.11.2020, some kids form Sumba, region of Lambanapu, East Sumba
A nice novelty, for our Base Camp, Rumah Kambera in Lambanapu, Sumba East (NTT). For months, our teams had been working under plastic sheeting, preparing actions and food donations, health care programs, manufacturing frames for huge water tanks, etc.

And don’t, for the past week we have had a canopy that protects the Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia  teams, as well as our friends, all the Sumba volunteers, in their daily tasks. 

This construction was funded by the Fair Future Foundation, with a donation of CHF. 1310.-.

Rebuild School building, Rebuild Community, #RebuildMbinudita. At the end of 2019, strong winds knocked down the parallel classroom building of the Mbinudita school, the building flattened to the ground, books and all classrooms were wet. "Where will you go to school later?", said the children of Mbinudita sadly seeing the collapsed school picking up the rest of the books.

Kawan Baik Indonesia and Fair Future Foundation accompanied by the support of various partners from Archimetriz Bali, KP2S, Charis Sumba Foundation, working hand in hand to rebuild the school building. Parents of students, local residents, teachers, children also participate in the school construction process. Day, night, heat or rain did not dampen the enthusiasm in completing the school building process.

Now the school is here again, more beautiful, more solid than before. The wind and storms will no longer be able to tear it away, destroy it and the children of MbinuDita are safe.

Together, let's build schools, build villages, build the future like we rebuilt Mbinudita.

Was kind of epic... To have a ticket 1st. Then to wait almost 3 days here in Sape East Sumbawa... After having driving 2 full days full East.

Then, waiting 6 hours, on the sun, 35°! Dust and heat! And even having the very precious ticket, you're never sure to be part of this trip to Waingapu. People sometimes wait weeks here!

I've no Idea how they can load so much stuff is a so small boat! The #TruckOfLife is quite big, even huge and was not so easy to squeeze it between others big trucks and many others kind of strange vehicles!

Now, it's full south, ke timur! They said that we will have some big waves, so... Let's see. Minimal 15 hours then, unload the ferry there, in East Sumba, Waingapu NTT, Will be also something!

Time to have some sleep, dunno where but we all need to sleep!

Kebun Rumah Kambera 

Pemenuhan gizi yang baik adalah salah satu program #kawansehat. Nah, bagaimana kita memulainya? yaitu dimulai dari memanfaatkan lahan disekitar kita untuk menanam sayur-mayur yang dapat kita panen setiap hari. 

Kali ini, di halaman belakang #rumahkambera, kita sudah membuat rumah bibit (memanfaatkan bangunan bekas kandang ayam yang sudah tidak terpakai) untuk menyemai benih-benih berbagai macam sayuran, ada tomat, cabai, kale, terung, timun, pare, seledri, selada, kacang panjang, buncis, bayam, bunga telang dan lain-lain. Sesaat lagi, akan siap dipindahkan ke bedeng untuk pertumbuhan yang lebih baik lagi. 

Dalam proses ini, kita juga dipandu oleh kawan @thecocoon.garden untuk setiap tahapannya. Kita belajar bersama untuk berkebun di Rumah Kambera dengan cuaca yang sedikit ekstrim panasnya dan jenis tanah yang sedikit kering berpasir. 

Kita ikuti bersama ya proses berkebun di rumah Kambera!

Fair Future healthcare in Kangeli, East Sumba. Truck of Life, became truck of health today. More than 100 patients, essentially young kids, received a medical treatment. Kangeli is an isolated village, it's take hours to go there, bad roads as usual.

it's a part of the mission of fairfuturefoundation and kawanbaikindonesia to give chance to people to have a better health. Especially in the most rural areas where clean water is almost inexistent!

From our base camp, "Rumah Kambera", with the foundation team.

How are you all? We are very happy to announce that we have almost completed the project of access to clean water, construction of showers, toilets, and seed germination place, in order to ensure the continuity of production in the vegetable garden families. Great job from all of us, from Rumah Kambera, Fair Future Base Camp in Eastern Indonesia, and of course all the local community who are also working to carry out this, but also all the other projects of the foundation.

It's a constant job as you can imagine. We have to be on site 12 hours a day in order to coordinate the different aspects of such a project while taking into account unforeseen circumstances: The geology of the ground concerning the drilling, the calculation of the slope from the drilling which is now carried out, up to at the clean water point, toilets, showers, etc. which are located a little over 150 meters away. The power supply, the installation of pumps, the 5,000-liter tank (when there is no electricity)... But also, of course, to teach families to use the facilities that we provide, how to take a shower, how not to generate waste, how to maintain the toilets, clean them of course. So many points on which Fair Future and Kawan Baik focus their attention and more.

This installation is revolutionary in its concept and approach. This is why we have determined it to be a "Pilot Project", we must multiply it by 40 in order to meet the needs of families, villages, and other communities which today do not have access to water.

After 4 days of drilling, we found clean, consumable water. A great joy for us, but also and above all for the families of this village. It is indeed the first time that they will have access to clean water, in quantity and so close to their home. This water will provide them with better health, increase their income, and allow them to have a better quality of life. And also to increase fertility, to eat better, to spend much less time on the roads in order to fetch water far, very far, too far ... Therefore women (because here, this role is still reserved for women and children), will have more time to take care of their homes, their children, or even have another occupation, another small business ...

Access to clean water, toilets, showers ... Fair Future explains this project to you

The truck was loaded to the face, with nearly 500 kilos of equipment, including more than a hundred bags of food that we offered to the population and children of this poor and very rural village, with very limited access to food. electricity and water.

The people here, the families live quite far from each other, this is one of the similarities of the villages of Sumba East. One or two kilometers between two houses is normal here. The majority of people get around on foot, children without shoes! There is no school in the village, so our friends from Charis Foundation organize classes in the village church… A simple church, not yet finished building.

Arrived on site, the medical teams of Fair Future and Kawan Baik are set up in the wooden house, typical of Sumba. People came, mostly children, all sick.

THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE SAME: NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES, ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS, MANY OF WHICH ARE CHRONIC. FOR CHILDREN, OFTEN DIARRHEA, COUGH, FEVER FOR ADULTS, SKIN AND JOINT PROBLEMS, BACK PAIN… EXTREME FATIGUE TO BE BLAMED ON LIVING CONDITIONS THAT ARE NOT HEALTHY, AND SO ON!

We also distributed more than a hundred bags of food to families and a lot of medicines and of course vitamins because here, we do not eat healthily. A normal meal consists of white rice, chili peppers, salt, and sometimes vegetables. But never fruit, since vitamin deficiencies are important, resulting in a deterioration in the state of form of the most vulnerable people: children, pregnant women, the elderly, and the chronically ill.

These living conditions, the health status of people can be greatly improved with access to clean water. Yes, water is life. It makes it possible to live better, healthier, to cultivate, to eat, to drink, to wash in a better way. This is why the foundation creates access to water, to toilets by gender, using ingenious, inexpensive, and entirely biological filtration systems, without danger for the environment of the beneficiary communities.

The Fair Future Foundation team, who wrote this news, directly from what is the largest medical and social camp in the eastern region of Indonesia (NTT), the home of Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia, who is called “Rumah Kambera“, house of Kambera, named after the village that welcomes us, in the heart of the area most devastated by this disaster on April 2021.

Thank you so much for helping us. We need medicines, donations, medical supplies, food… Do not forget us and them!
