Covid-19 East Sumba

Rumah Kambera

“Rumah Kambera”; “Rumah” means residence and Kambera is the name of the sub-district. We chose the word “home” deliberately, because in addition to being our future office in Sumba, it will also be a meeting place, sharing activities, teaching and learning, a shelter for volunteers, a place to exchange ideas, a playroom, find innovative ideas, all with a shared vision, namely to improve the quality of life of people living in the East Sumba area.

SUMBA PHOTO STORIES

A photography mentoring project to become a medium of expression and storytelling through photos. Starting from January 2020, training has been conducted in two schools, in two villages, in the eastern part of Sumba.

BANGUN MBINUDITA

since August 2020 we are rebuilding a school that collapsed in the wind at the end of 2019. With this development, every year 65 to 100 children can attend school safely and comfortably.

FIRST AID KIT

A project that aims to provide first aid through first aid kits that will be distributed to every school and traditional medical personnel accompanied by Faskes personnel in East Sumba.

KAMPUNG SCHOOL

A joint project of Charis Sumba School. In the last four years, in the field of education, Charis Sumba School has accompanied 37 teachers in 18 remote village schools, especially PAUD schools and emergency classes in the east Sumba area.

ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER

One of the main problems in East Sumba is limited access to clean water. Generally, people still rely on springs, wells, and rainwater reservoirs but still do not meet the basic needs of water.

GARDEN

One of the biggest assets of this house, is the land on which this house stands; the area is quite large and suitable for farming, we will make gardens.

Assaria, 9, comes from an area where the Fair Future and Kawan Baik foundations have been working for more than three years. 18 months ago, with gasoline, Assa suffered 3rd degree burns to both legs, buttocks and lower back. A bottle full of fuel (gasoline) fell into the house fire. At the time of the accident, he was wearing only nylon clothing and was burned.

He only received primary care here in Waingapu, East Sumba, as nothing exists to treat this type of serious injury. He should have received skin grafts long before. But now things are like that. He received no special care.

We know Assa because he is a child from Mbinudita, a pupil of the school we built here on the highest hill in the village. Alerted, Fair Future also provided him care in the context of his village, bandages, and antibiotic treatments because there is not enough water to wash, or you have to walk very far to fetch a few litres of water. Here in this area, wounds become infected quickly, especially when the scars are from 3rd-degree burns.

Assa must be operated on quickly for severe burns to his legs and lower back. Currently, he walks with difficulty because the skin is no longer elastic. She retracts with the burns. This makes his legs unable to bend, and his skin is rock hard. The big problem is that Assa is only 9 years old (8 years old at the time of the facts) and that he is growing; it will grow quickly!

The consequences can be disastrous if Assa does not undergo adequate surgical treatment in a suitable care centre.

Today, Assa suffers from a loss of sensitivity and blood circulation disorders that prevent healing wounds, which are already 18 months old! This deterioration in his physical and mobile condition can only worsen with growth and complications. This can go as far as a possible amputation. But before that, a total impossibility to mobilize, or at the cost of excruciating pain. And not being able to mobilize here is the end of everything.

Assa is now alone with his mother and father. He can no longer walk to school. It is also impossible to help his family to fetch water. Play with his friends? He watches them play with envy, sitting on a pebble. He participates with voice and laughter!

Assa wants the operation; he likes the idea and is willing to do whatever it takes. We explained that it would take a long time and he would also have to leave his village for long weeks. It is even okay for us to go there without these parents, aware that it will be complicated to accommodate such an operation for two or three people.

His parents do not have insurance or the smallest possible, which will not cover any hospital costs for such a surgical operation. You will have to go far from Sumba, take the plane, find accommodation, travel and pay hospital costs... It's a huge challenge, isn't it?

The region here is economically very poor. The inhabitants are all farmers and consume the fruits of their harvest. The houses have no access to electricity or clean water (this is changing thanks to Fair Future and the Water Connections project), and it is difficult to eat because there is not enough for everyone. Showering once a week at most is typical for villagers and other rural dwellers in East Sumba (the poorest region of Indonesia)

That's it, that's all. It is simple but, at the same time, very complicated. Together we can do it for him. Okay?

Fair Future Foundation works every day to improve the living conditions of rural communities in eastern Indonesia. The year 2021 draws to a close and we contemplate the extent of the work that awaits us in 2022.

One of the Foundation's tasks is to ensure equitable access to water in quantity and quality, in order to prevent disease and sustain lives. This is to reduce environmental health risks by managing sanitation safely and with dignity. Still, the foundation seeks to involve women and men in the management of water resources, in sanitation by putting in place safe hygiene practices to maximize the benefits for their communities.

It's too easy to forget that water is a miracle. In some countries, clean, safe drinking water is so plentiful and readily available that we take it for granted. Access to drinking water should be a basic human right.

Our field experience has taught us a very simple lesson: without water, living conditions cannot improve. Without water, there is no green, no blue, no life. Without water, there will be no plants, no trees, no fruit, no vegetables, no food.

The majority of communities with which Fair Future works struggle every day to have access to this fundamental right, which is why our actions for the year 2022 will be focused on creating access to water for these families, so that their health can improve, that they can grow food. But also offer them the opportunity to create an economic activity that will serve their living conditions.

At this end of the year, Fair Future wishes to present to you - with the help of a short documentary - the difficulties encountered by these families, these entire communities. For ten liters of water, often unfit for consumption, you have to walk for miles, digging wells by hand in which water will not be a guarantee.

We hope that this look at some of the foundation's places of activity can help you understand the extent of a complex and at times inhumane situation of the water crisis.

We are counting on you to support future projects, the first of which is the construction of a network of wells in the Mbinudita region, which will provide access to water to more than 200 families. A unique, innovative, original, participatory, ecological, and vital project! We have been working on it for several months and it is progressing well.

This is the last project of the year 2021 and, as a continuation, it will be one of our projects to improve life, health, reduce the rate of morbidity of children in the year 2022.

On the whole of CHF. 49,000.-, Fair Future has already funded this project at almost 25%, so we count on your support to collect the remaining 75% and we thank you in advance! Each donation makes a real difference and allows us to go one step further.

The Fair Future teams wish you all a very good viewing and a very happy New Year!

The Shades of Water. A movie by Epi Production, Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia

We gave 100 solar lamps to 100 solar children, from one of the most rural areas of East Sumba in Indonesia.

Mbinudita village is one of the villages in eastern Sumba that does not yet have access to electricity. The accommodation still uses candles or lanterns to light up their nights.

All of the children living with their families, apart from the lack of electricity, live without access to water, medical care, or healthy food. The rate of people suffering from malnutrition here is very high, it is in the majority.

Why donate solar lights? Well, when night falls at 6:00 p.m. and you come home from school at 4:00 p.m., after sometimes having walked for more than two hours on stone and dirt paths to get home, study, and do your homework is no longer possible. It's already nighttime!

Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia distributed 100 solar lights to 100 children in East Sumba, living in the MbinuDita region, where we are very active. These children live in one of the poorest regions of Indonesia, if not Southeast Asia. This is where we have been very active for years now.

A solar and solidarity action involving our teams on site, those of Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia, the teachers of our school on site. It was magical to see the children studying, by the light of their new solar lamp, opening their notebooks, a book, reading, and being able to write.

Fair Future Foundation travaille chaque jour pour améliorer les conditions de vie des communautés rurales de l'est de l'Indonésie. L'année 2021 touche à sa fin et nous contemplons l'ampleur du travail qui nous attend en 2022.

L'une des tâches de la Fondation est d'assurer un accès équitable à l'eau en quantité et en qualité, afin de prévenir les maladies et de maintenir des vies. Il s'agit de réduire les risques environnementaux pour la santé en gérant l'assainissement en toute sécurité et avec dignité. Pourtant, la fondation cherche à impliquer les femmes et les hommes dans la gestion des ressources en eau, dans l'assainissement en mettant en place des pratiques d'hygiène sûres pour maximiser les bénéfices pour leurs communautés.

Il est trop facile d'oublier que l'eau est un miracle. Dans certains pays, l'eau potable est si abondante et si facilement disponible que nous la tenons pour acquise. L'accès à l'eau potable devrait être un droit humain fondamental.

Notre expérience de terrain nous a appris une leçon très simple : sans eau, les conditions de vie ne peuvent s'améliorer. Sans eau, il n'y a pas de vert, pas de bleu, pas de vie. Sans eau, il n'y aura pas de plantes, pas d'arbres, pas de fruits, pas de légumes, pas de nourriture.

La majorité des communautés avec lesquelles Fair Future travaille lutte chaque jour pour avoir accès à ce droit fondamental, c'est pourquoi nos actions pour l'année 2022 seront axées sur la création d'un accès à l'eau pour ces familles, afin que leur santé puisse s'améliorer, qu'elles peut faire pousser de la nourriture. Mais aussi leur offrir la possibilité de créer une activité économique qui servira leurs conditions de vie.

En cette fin d'année, Fair Future souhaite vous présenter - à l'aide d'un court documentaire - les difficultés rencontrées par ces familles, ces communautés entières. Pour dix litres d'eau, souvent impropre à la consommation, il faut marcher des kilomètres, creuser à la main des puits dans lesquels l'eau ne sera pas une garantie.

Nous espérons que ce regard sur quelques lieux d'activité de la fondation pourra vous aider à comprendre l'ampleur d'une situation complexe et parfois inhumaine de crise de l'eau.

Nous comptons sur vous pour soutenir les futurs projets dont le premier est la construction d'un réseau de puits dans la région de Mbinudita, qui permettra l'accès à l'eau à plus de 200 familles. Un projet unique, innovant, original, participatif, écologique et vital ! On y travaille depuis plusieurs mois et ça avance bien.

C'est le dernier projet de l'année 2021 et, dans la continuité, ce sera l'un de nos projets pour améliorer la vie, la santé, réduire le taux de morbidité des enfants en 2022.

Au total CHF. 49 000.-, Fair Future a déjà financé ce projet à près de 25%, nous comptons donc sur votre soutien pour récolter les 75% restants et nous vous remercions d'avance ! Chaque don fait une réelle différence et nous permet d'aller plus loin.

Les équipes de Fair Future vous souhaitent à tous un très bon visionnage et une très bonne année !
