Why do we all need to have access to clean water and sanitation?

Because where we operate in Eastern Indonesia, contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and poliomyelitis. With, for children and vulnerable people, a high mortality rate.

An with you, we are changing this with the “Water Connections Project”.

Some actions on which Fair Future is totally committed

Our programs are powered by highly engaging campaigns, set up by all of us, but also by the beneficiaries themselves

Fair Future’s response to first aid situations for children from rural areas

A child who goes to school walks for more than 2 hours, sometimes more, without shoes, bare feet, and water. He does it twice a day, there and back. By bad luck, he steps on a very sharp stone, he gets hurt. Or as we often see, a dog bites him deep in the leg.

The risks of infections here are enormous because people do not have access to water and even less to drinking water. When they have some, you have to boil it, it takes hours because you have to make a fire.

And there is no medical center here, the closest is sometimes two hours away by scooter, but most people don’t own a scooter. Therefore, this wound will have a huge risk of infection.

It can lead to the death of a child if families are not given the opportunity to deal with this injury before it becomes serious, very serious, too serious.

Fair Future’s response to access to healthcare and basic medical care

All of us from the field, act so that families living in the outermost areas can have access to drinking water, health care, healthy food, better education for children, and basic medical care. Where we are engaged, families continue to face inherent challenges, which make it difficult, if not impossible, to be healthy. Chronic diseases are everywhere and affect everyone, of all ages.

Poverty, lack of information, unique geography, and lack of roads make access to health centers difficult for people living in remote areas.

This leads to extraordinary inequalities. In Indonesia, 9.5 million children under five suffer from malnutrition. 12% of children under five suffer from wasting. 57% in rural areas are anemic.

We care, just so that people living in more rural areas can have a more balanced and healthy life, a better life.

The water connections program, clean & safe water in rural areas

We are changing the nature of water for thousands of families from the most rural and poor areas of Indonesia – Indeed, “water connections” are not just about giving water to an entire village, but providing a healthier life through clean, non-lethal water. Water is defined by where we live and our needs. Between the modern world and the rural world, things are so different and the definition of water takes on another meaning.

What do you need? What do they need? What do they really want? Through our actions, we respond to their real needs: To have clean water, to drink more, to eat better, to shower regularly, to grow vegetables, to germinate their seeds, and therefore to have a healthier, more harmonious, happier life-

Today, we support an entire community of people around water. More than 250 families and 2,400 people, 70% of whom are children, live in an extremely rural area. And tomorrow other regions will benefit from such a project… A good life thanks to clean water!

Emergency relief programs in the event of natural disasters, shortages, conflicts

As a Social and Medical organization, it is beyond our area of ​​competence to define the causes of many events to which we will respond tomorrow. Nevertheless, the existing scientific evidence clearly indicates that we will see a further rise in temperatures and sea levels. As well as more frequent extreme weather events, which will have a much greater impact on communities.

Discover the different contexts and situations in which our teams intervene to provide care, including situations of social and natural disasters, and how and why we adapt our activities to each.

Our teams fight every day against epidemics and serious illnesses. Those are due to the lack of water, food, hygiene, and healthcare for children and vulnerable people. In the event of a disaster, emergency actions are implemented in the areas of health, access to drinking water, food, medical care, and a multitude of actions coordinated from our Base Camps.

Massive pest attacks that destroy all crops and starve the people

In East Sumba, for several days now, grasshoppers have been destroying all crops, vegetable gardens, soybeans, and corn. For three years, it has come back regularly. During high population years, they feed and severely damage almost all crops, trees, shrubs, and vegetable gardens. We are in contact with the most affected populations who tell us how the fruit of their work, their fields But also their garden, are totally destroyed in a few minutes. The impact is enormous for these poor families since their income is not enough to buy food. Rice in particular is expensive, therefore corn harvests are very important and vital for families. A new trade is in the process of being born: The sale of grasshoppers by the kilo; this is in order to eat and be nourished. The price is IDR. 5,000,000.- per kilo, i.e. less than 50 cents.

2022 will be a hard year

This year will be the year of all dangers for families and communities

2022 will be a complicated year for people in rural areas, in terms of access to food, health care and economic resources

We must be on all fronts

Give water, food and basic care

Decrease infant mortality, the vulnerability of vulnerable people

Have a healthier and more harmonious life, physical & mental well-being, reduce water and food stress situations

WATER CONNECTIONS PROJECT – #REBUILDMBINUDITA SITE

Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia Foundations are changing the nature of water. Water connections are not just about giving water to an entire community! Water is defined by where we live and our needs. Between the modern world and the rural world, things are so different and the definition of water takes on another meaning. What do you need? What do they need? What do they really want? Through our actions, we respond to their real needs: to have clean water, to drink more, to eat better, to shower regularly, to grow vegetables, to germinate their seeds, and therefore to have a healthier, more harmonious life

REBUILD MBINUDITA – A NEW SCHOOL FOR 100 KIDS
On December 19, 2019, the old school collapsed. By rebuilding a new school, Fair Future ensured the continuity of educational activity in Mbinu Dita. Hundreds of children aged 8 to 13 now benefit from this beautiful school. The population of Mbinu Dita is far from any form of civilization, so this school is vital for the development of the region. And for the very rural community of this region, this school center is also a community center in which the foundation organizes social, medical, artistic, and cultural events throughout the year.

We treat patients suffering from a wide range of problems and need to have a healthier, balanced, harmonious life. Here you will find some of the main themes that Fair Future and Kawan Baik are working on, what we see, and what we are trying to do to address them.

Often films are shot from the field, without editing, without fuss, because it is often difficult to find the time for that!

Have you wondered what your life would be like if you didn't have water at home? No toilet, no place to wash? What if the little water available was often unsuitable? Dangerous for the health of the most fragile? Deadly?

#waterconnections, This is why this project is important for us but especially for them. The right to have good health is a non-existent concept when water is present neither in quality (unsuitable, dangerous…) nor in quantity (a few liters per day only for an entire family).
