Alex Founder of Fair Future

Support the medical team for the primary medical care program for children in rural areas, but also -for this month- the malaria epidemic, which is very strong here in eastern Indonesia and for which we are firmly committed. Thank you very much.

We urgently need anti-malaria drugs!

We urgently need anti-malaria drugs!

Fair Future issues an intense red alert linked to the case of malaria, which is reaching a critical level here in East Sumba, Indonesia. For weeks, thousands of malaria cases have been recorded here in East Sumba. This figure is nevertheless to be taken conditionally because, in many villages, people do not have an identity card or a family book or do not have access to medical care, so they are sick in silence.

Do you have medical equipment, clothes, and medicine? Could you bring them to us here?

Extract and Description of this short News | As part of the departure of the Truck of Life – week #2 of December 2022 – for Sumba East and our Medical-Social Base Camp, we still have a little space available to load equipment such as Medical equipment, medicines and clothes for children and newborns that you no longer use. You can bring all of this to us at the foundation headquarters (see the link here to find us in Denpasar). Here is a list of medicines and other materials you need to bring to Rumah Baik, Denpasar Selatan. Thank you very much for your support Kawan,

Kawan Sehat, the full book for a healthier life

Kawan Sehat, the full book for a healthier life

The Foundation has created an illustrated book for the young in the ultra-rural areas of eastern Indonesia. Where knowing how to read and write is not shared. It will serve as a reference book and gather most of the information on a better lifestyle, the tips and tricks that are “normal” but that most don’t know here. Here it is in its preview version. There are still about ten pages missing in the process of colouring.

Together we can make it

Together we can make it

Let’s do it together and hold hands to reach the moon. Ensure that the primary medical care program for children can continue as the needs are enormous here in eastern Indonesia. Malaria is ravaging, expectations are high, and we lack the means to buy medical equipment, medicines and everything they all need to get better…

Malaria outbreak in East Sumba, Indonesia

Malaria outbreak in East Sumba, Indonesia

Malaria is one of the most severe public health problems in the world. Here in Indonesia, and especially in the eastern regions, it is one of the leading causes of death and disease. Children under five years old and pregnant women are the most affected groups. The problem in East Sumba is the staggering rate of cases affecting families and the anti-malaria drugs that are unavailable or too expensive.

8 billion equal people? What about the food?

8 billion equal people? What about the food?

Eight billion people on earth: Are we going to starve? On the one hand, there is population growth. On the other, the world’s resources make it possible to feed human beings. How to reconcile the two? Today and tomorrow, will we all be able to provide for ourselves?

Help us load the medical truck for its next trip

Help us load the medical truck for its next trip

As part of the project for access to primary medical care for children in rural areas of eastern Indonesia, the foundation needs you to balance its budget. We want to be able to load our medical truck as much as possible in order to reduce logistics costs. They will carry more than a ton of medical equipment, medicines, sterile equipment, and first-aid materials.

Consuming unsafe water can look like this!

Consuming unsafe water can look like this!

In these few images taken at the end of October 2022, in a village in East Sumba, more than a hundred people have access to this unique water source. A well was dug by hand more than ten years ago and is almost always dry. People have to queue to get a few litres of water that is totally unfit for consumption and dangerous to their health.
