Going everywhere to help people from East Sumba

May 10, 2021

Dear friends, dear families,

Fair Future and Kawan Baik are on the ground every day, to cover –from sunrise, until late at night sometimes-, the regions most affected by the disaster of early April 2021.

Today, Fair Future and C / o are still working in a hurry! Certainly not the one that followed the disaster, but to tempt those who no longer have access to the most basic things such as: Water, food, medical care … As you can see in these few photos taken by our teams in the field, thousands of people live in difficult conditions.

The situation for these people is as I said complicated, a harsh life! We know that everything we do is because of the generosity of all of you and you are literally magic!

For us here in Rumah Kambera, the center of our mutual aid activities, we don’t have enough resources to help, when we could do a lot more. There is not a single half-day that we are not faced with a situation that we can classify as “human tragedies”.

Once it’s a family sleeping under plastic sheeting, once a community that doesn’t have enough water to have a healthy and decent life, once it’s children who don’t eat enough and starve themselves. Or all these examples at the same time come together in the framework of a single-family, village, community. And so these people get sick. And so they would have to have access to medical care. But as access to health care here is very complicated (need places, financial resources, means of transport …), sick people become even more so.

We no longer count cases of severe to severe anemia among young and old alike, problems related to lack of water such as personal hygiene, toilets, and the simple act of brushing your teeth.

Water is sorely lacking, cooking becomes a challenge… And as the dams are destroyed (read the previous News), there are no more vegetables that are sold or so, and when there are, they are financially inaccessible for these families, from poor and rural areas.

Faced with the country’s lack of aid, but also to deal with the lack of aid that the Fair Future has been asking for since the start of this socio-health crisis, the foundation is acting as best it can.

  • We are building solutions for water, thanks to the removal of nearly one hundred water tanks, practically installed in the regions most affected by the crisis linked to the lack of clean water;
  • Here again, we are providing medical care in many places where we face communities in need of appropriate medical treatment. Today, it is hundreds of kilos of drugs that Fair Future has prescribed mainly to young children. We lack the means that would allow us to acquire more medicines, including a lot of food supplements, vitamins, salts-minerals, etc …
  • We provide access to clean water through temporary means. That is, which cannot last forever. A 5,500-liter tank needs to be filled almost every 3 days, it costs a little over $ 30 to order a clean, consumable water tanker truck. In addition, sometimes the trucks cannot move because they are broken down, or the road is cut or this or that …
  • We have given access to voluntary associations to our base camp, Rumah Kambera, as you may have read in the previous News. Today Fair Future manages nearly 50 volunteers on a daily basis, tons of equipment, rescue teams, supply teams, the installation of tanks and their construction, vehicles, logistics, daily expenses to feed these beautiful souls. who help on a voluntary basis. Today, the Foundation’s center in Sumba, managed by a Swiss foundation, is NTT’s largest;
  • Several trucks of vital goods departed from our main center in Denpasar, loaded at well over 100, (the most recent has left last night 05.09.2021). To get a full truck to Sumba, it costs around IDR.12mio (or $ 750.-), this includes the two boats you have to take to get to the port of Waingapu (NTT), or more than 35 hours of travel,
  • The government does not come to our aid, but it comes to ask us for help because they have nothing left and the situation is getting worse on a social, food, and logistical level.

There you go, that’s all for the good news from East Sumba. We would also like to thank you all for all your messages, your support, the many donations that Fair Future and Kawan Baik have received and which are fully paid for the benefit of this drama which is happening a little in the general indifference in the east of Indonesia. Thank you with all our heart for your kindness.

The Fair Future Foundation team, who wrote this news, directly from what is the largest medical and social camp in the eastern region of Indonesia (NTT), the home of Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia, who is called “Rumah Kambera“, house of Kambera, named after the village that welcomes us, in the heart of the area most devastated by this disaster.

Thank you so much for helping us. We need medicines, donations, medical supplies, food… Do not forget us and them!

Construction process of the first Central Water Points

Carrying out such projects seem trivial. Water is a matter that we generally popularise. And yet, here in rural areas of eastern Indonesia, it is a real challenge. Therefore, here is a document that presents the process of building the first Central Water Points, which Fair Future is building,
