Who are we?
Fair Future Foundation is a Swiss international humanitarian organisation founded in 2006. FFF and all its friends offer help and assistance to populations, communities, families, and individuals whose life and health are threatened by disease, food or water shortage, pandemic, epidemic, or natural disasters.

Assaria, 9 years old, must have surgery for his burns

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 terrifying 3rd-degree burns to both legs, buttocks and lower back. Today he suffers from very serious complications which put his future, and his life in danger.

Response to 1st aid situations for children from rural areas

On his way to school, a child walks barefoot for 2 hours without shoes. He does it twice a day, there and back. By bad luck, he steps on a very sharp stone and 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, and it takes hours because you have to make a fire

The water connections program, safe water in rural areas

Because we operate in eastern Indonesia, contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and poliomyelitis. For children and vulnerable people, a high mortality rate. And together with you, we are changing that with the “Water Connections Project”. Clean and safe water for ultra-rural regions

Response for access to basic medical care in rural areas

We offer solutions for access to local medical care, in order to improve the health of people and populations living in rural areas. Where we work, families continue to face immense challenges, making it difficult, if not impossible, to be healthy. Being sick is part of everyday life, it has become normal and we are changing that

Emergency relief programs in the event of natural disasters

Discover the different contexts and situations in which we operate to provide care, including problems of social and natural disasters and how and why we adapt our activities to each. In a disaster, emergency actions are implemented in the areas of health, access to drinking water, food, medical care, and a multitude of efforts coordinated from our bases camps

Fair Future is a Swiss, International, independent, socio-medical non-profit organization working in the rural areas of Indonesia, to provide support and relief

Discover how we provide social, medical, and humanitarian support

Wherever Fair Future operates, the cases and the environment are unique. Nonetheless, we follow a standard set of practices designed to ensure that our resources and expertise are used optimally and respectfully.

Fair Future is a recognised Swiss organisation of a pure public utility that provides and offers social, medical and infrastructural assistance to communities, families and individuals affected by poverty, health crises, epidemics, disasters and shortages of food or water. But also the exclusion of healthcare and any social or economic assistance.

Our collaborators are “Kawan Baik” (good friends), comprised of villagers, social logisticians, health professionals, logistics and technical staff in the field, and specialists in water, agriculture and administration.

All good friends are hired locally. This is so that all actors and beneficiaries can recognise themselves and identify with how things are done. Above all, all actions implemented, created and carried out are guided by local cultural, social and medical ethics.

One of the philosophical bases of our work in the field is that the beneficiaries themselves are the builders of each program put in place by Fair Future. This provides them with an income, the opportunity to learn, and, above all, to make new friends.

The principles of knowledge sharing, neutrality, impartiality, justice and independence permeate everything we do every day.

Rumah Kambera, our Medico-Social Base Camp

Rumah Kambera is the centre of life for all those who work hard in eastern Indonesia. We implement planned programs such as health and medical care for all, the Water Connections programme, access to first aid care for children, and disaster relief planning. Our teams are always ready to receive anyone who would ask for help or support. It is also the centre of thoughts of a whole team that imagines the projects of tomorrow: A borehole here, the construction of infrastructure there. A place where we live, eat, sleep from time to time, and also laugh.

Fair Future estimates that every dollar invested in water and toilets saves an average of $4 in medical costs, averts deaths and increases productivity. Hygiene promotion is considered one of the most cost-effective public health interventions. Conversely, lack of sanitation hinders economic growth.

Access to clean, safe water is the best possible medical treatment for people living in the areas where we work to give them access to healthcare. Helping us provide clear, clean water is helping to heal people.

And this is a little part of our actuality…

Within the framework of more than ten types of actions including medical care, access to a better life, giving chances for a healthier life, construction of schools, and education of children and adults, Fair Future provides assistance in humanitarian action aimed at saving lives, and families, villages and communities.

Some actions on which Fair Future is 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 1st aid situations for children in rural areas

A child who goes to school walks for more than 2 hours, sometimes more, without shoes, barefoot, and water to hydrate. This kid does this twice a day, back and forth. It’s a tough life for a 10-year-old, but they’re used to it, as they always tell us.

By bad luck, he steps on a very sharp stone and 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, and it takes hours because you have to make a fire.

And there is no medical centre here, the closest is sometimes two hours away by scooter, but most people don’t own a scooter. Therefore, this wound will have a considerable 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” provide a healthier life through clean, non-lethal water.

Fair Future estimates that every dollar invested in water and toilets saves an average of $4 in medical costs, averts deaths and increases productivity. Hygiene promotion is considered one of the most cost-effective public health interventions. Conversely, lack of sanitation hinders economic growth.

Through this program, we respond to their actual needs: To have clean water, to drink more, eat better, shower regularly, grow vegetables, germinate their seeds, and therefore 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 a highly rural area. A better life with clean water!

Emergency relief programs in the event of natural disasters, shortages

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.

Other social or medical problems for which we are engaged

Please find out how, why we respond to different diseases and the challenges we face in providing treatment

Childhood and socio-medical vulnerability

The health risks for children are all the more serious when the child is young

Without adequate care, a child’s earliest years can be the most deadly in many low-resource countries.

On average here in Indonesia, 85% of deaths occur in children under the age of five, but 47% of those deaths occur during the period of newborn.

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.

Discover the main topics in which we intervene, the consequences faced by the people affected, and the challenges that lead us to meet extraordinary people every day.

Asssaria, 9 years old, must have surgery quickly for his very serious burns to her legs & lower back

Fair Future Foundation 25 views Tue Jul 12th, 2022

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 her 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?
