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.

"Matawai is more than a documentary—it's a call to action. Produced by the Fair Future Foundation, this film takes you deep into the challenges of accessing clean water in East Indonesia. Learn how you can contribute to making clean water a universal human right."

The Fair Future Foundation, committed to sustainably improving the health and well-being of rural communities in East Indonesia, extends its impact beyond cutting-edge medical programs like #KwanSehat, #ZeronMalaria, and #PrimaryMedicalCare. Central to our action is also the #WaterConnections initiative, aimed at ensuring equitable access to both sufficient and quality water.

In a society where clean water is often considered a luxury, we are committed to reinforcing that it's a fundamental human right. Our on-the-ground experience has shown us just how life can be negatively impacted in the absence of this essential resource. Without water, not only do sanitation conditions deteriorate, but opportunities for social and economic development are also stifled.

Our recent documentary, "Matawai," sheds light on these often-overlooked realities. Filmed in close collaboration with the communities we serve, it portrays the daily struggles of rural families for whom water access is an ongoing battle. These families often walk miles to collect just ten liters of water, which is often unsafe for consumption. The documentary also explores various innovative initiatives and solutions that Fair Future is implementing, such as artesian wells, water filtration systems, and educational programs promoting hygiene and sanitation.

We also incorporate a gender perspective into our programs, encouraging the active participation of both women and men in water management and sanitation. This extends beyond mere water distribution to encompass broader aspects like hygiene education, community resource sharing, and the development of water-related micro-enterprises.

We hope that "Matawai" serves not only as an eye-opener but also as a catalyst for action. The challenges are immense, but with your support, we can build a future where access to clean water is not a privilege but a universal right. The Fair Future teams invite you to join us in this crucial mission and wish you an informative and mobilizing viewing experience of our documentary.

Matawai: Fair Future's Eye-Opening Documentary on East Indonesia's Water Crisis

"Matawai est plus qu'un documentaire, c'est un appel à l'action. Produit par Fair Future Foundation, ce film vous plonge au cœur des défis d'accès à l'eau propre en Indonésie de l'Est. Découvrez comment vous pouvez contribuer à faire de l'eau potable un droit humain universel."

La Fair Future Foundation, engagée dans l'amélioration durable des conditions de santé et de bien-être des communautés rurales de l'Est de l'Indonésie, n'est pas seulement centrée sur des programmes médicaux de pointe comme #KwanSehat, #ZeronMalaria, et #PrimaryMedicalCare. Au cœur de notre action, nous avons également l'initiative #WaterConnections qui vise à garantir un accès équitable à l'eau en quantité suffisante et de qualité irréprochable.

Dans une société où l'eau potable est souvent un luxe, nous tenons à rappeler que c'est un droit humain fondamental. Nous avons observé sur le terrain combien la vie peut être impactée négativement en l'absence de cette ressource essentielle. Sans eau, non seulement les conditions sanitaires se détériorent, mais les possibilités de développement économique et social sont également réduites.

Notre documentaire récent, "Matawai," met en lumière ces réalités souvent ignorées. Filmé en collaboration étroite avec les communautés que nous servons, il présente le quotidien des familles rurales pour qui l'accès à l'eau est une lutte constante. Ces familles parcourent souvent des kilomètres à pied, seulement pour puiser dix litres d'eau, qui sont souvent impropres à la consommation. Le documentaire explore également les diverses initiatives et solutions innovantes que Fair Future met en place, notamment des puits artésiens, des systèmes de filtration d'eau et des programmes éducatifs pour promouvoir l'hygiène et l'assainissement.

Nous intégrons également une perspective de genre dans nos programmes, encourageant la participation active des femmes et des hommes dans la gestion de l'eau et de l'assainissement. Cela ne se limite pas à la simple distribution de l'eau mais englobe des aspects plus larges comme l'éducation à l'hygiène, le partage communautaire des ressources et le développement de micro-entreprises liées à l'eau.

Nous espérons que "Matawai" servira non seulement comme une prise de conscience, mais aussi comme un catalyseur pour l'action. Les défis sont immenses, mais avec votre soutien, nous pouvons construire un avenir où l'accès à l'eau propre n'est pas un privilège mais un droit universel. Les équipes de Fair Future vous invitent à vous joindre à nous dans cette mission cruciale et vous souhaitent un visionnage à la fois informatif et mobilisateur de notre documentaire.

Matawai : Le documentaire révélateur de Fair Future sur la crise de l'eau dans l'est de l'Indonésie

At the end of July 2023, an important milestone was reached in pursuing the ambitious #ZeroMalaria initiative. The seamless collaboration between organizations Fair Future Foundation, Kawan Baik Indonesia and Sumba Volunteer has produced transformative results for this community.

These socio-medical efforts resulted in targeted days of action, including meticulous screening and comprehensive treatment protocols for over 200 adults and children. The campaign serves as a strong defence against malaria. Those who tested positive were given prompt medical interventions, documented in previous communications. In addition, we distributed dozens of insecticide-treated mosquito nets with guidelines for proper use and maintenance. We emphasized that nets should not be used in gardens, a common practice in this area.

This short film was created by a team of volunteers who we sincerely appreciate. Notably, #ZeroMalariaSumba has mobilized nearly 100 passionate individuals, including over 50 volunteers across Indonesia. This initiative isn't just a temporary intervention but a long-term commitment we plan to sustain.

The vision was realized in July and August with various activities, including screening 3,000 people, targeting Indoor Residual Spray (IRS), installing mosquito nets, administering rapid tests, and conducting family training sessions.

#ZeroMalaria Program in Mbatakapudu, Village of Laindatang, East Sumba

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?

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.
