Their common objective: the launch of the ambitious Zero Malaria program.
This pivotal stage witnessed heroes in white coats from diverse backgrounds converging. Seasoned doctors, fearless team leaders, adept logisticians, determined laboratory technicians, compassionate nurses, and visionary program coordinators all rallied behind a mission of paramount significance – eradicating malaria in one of the world’s hardest-hit regions, Sumba East.
Preparation is not just a step; it’s the foundation of our triumph against malaria. In unity, dedication, and meticulous planning, we find the power to save lives.” – Alexandre, Founder of Fair Future Foundation.
The Zero Malaria program, initiated by the Fair Future Foundation, Kawan Baik, and Sumba Volunteer, stands as a testament to human achievement. As dedicated medical organizations, they have devoted their hearts and resources to saving thousands of lives, with a special focus on safeguarding children, pregnant women, and vulnerable populations. This heroic endeavor hinges not only on coordination with local and national authorities but also on unwavering internal collaboration. The foundation shoulders 95% of the responsibility, including full financing, surpassing 700 million Indonesian Rupiahs.
