Extract | Access to essential medicines is a basic element of any effective health care system. Essential drugs are defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "drugs which meet the priority health care needs of the population", and which "must be available at all times in sufficient quantities, under appropriate pharmaceutical forms, with guaranteed quality, and at an affordable price for the individual and the community ”

Access to healthcare is a fundamental human right. Here, medical care is a privilege and Fair Future tries to restore what must be, for everyone’s benefit.

Fair Future and Kawan Baik, as part of their socio-medical activities in eastern Indonesia and their Rumah Kambera Base Camp, have a place where medical care can be given.

It is also where we store the drugs and other medical equipment that we have available. This serves as a reserve, as a local pharmacy. While Sumba has nothing, we are one of the privileged places to distribute medicines to the suffering and sick.

In terms of pharmaceuticals, we lack everything or almost nothing is enough. As part of our fight against poverty and related diseases, but above all in order to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic that is raging in Indonesia, especially in areas where nothing is being done by the government Indonesian (Read this page here regarding our pandemic work here in the east of the country), we need medicine.

Our bank details are available under this link. For any information request, please send us an email or contact us here.

List of drugs available in real-time In Rumah Kambera Base Camp

Medical care for children: Far too many children still die from easily preventable problems, especially in their first few days/weeks of life, as well as from diarrhea and pneumonia. Access to clean water and good sanitation solutions is one of the future goals to help them get better.

Malnutrition and famine: Malnutrition causes serious illnesses where we are! The phenomenon, creating a vicious cycle of starvation & disease. This is a major problem in which we deal with!

Air pollution and health: Plastic that burns, everywhere! Air pollution is responsible for almost 50% of mortality here. Dioxins, furans, mercury, and polychlorinated biphenyls are highly toxic!

Today, the Swiss foundation faces major challenges in terms of engagement in the field: Pandemic, Access to Water, Health, education or the simple fact of being able to go to school. !

Providing medical care, drinking water, light to study, build schools and improve solutions for access to knowledge, and primary care is our main priorities.

We created, realized, set up the project “Rumah Kambera” in this direction:

To improve the living conditions of hundreds of thousands of families and children, living in rural areas of eastern Indonesia.

Dengue virus infection: DENV is a real major cause of acute febrile illness here. In the most affected regions, mortality is very high & affects the most vulnerable. Especially for those who do not have access to medical care.

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.

Other big challenges for our teams on the way to NTT

Notice of departure of the members of our field teams, for the following programs: The program water connections, clean & safe water in rural areas – Collection of data related to the living conditions of families in rural areas – Provide basic emergency care to all children, with a first aid kit for each school/village – Basic health and medical care in very remote areas – Improvement of logistical means in the event of emergencies and disasters – Start-up of the Program linked to our new deep well drilling rig. Fair Future Foundation and all the collaborators who make it live offer medical, social, educational, logistical, and infrastructural assistance to people affected by shortages, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care. With Kawan Baik Indonesia, we operate in the most rural and ultra-peripheral areas of Indonesia. Fair Future in the field, these are teams made up of health professionals – all local -, logistics and administrative staff, also recruited locally. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence, and neutrality. We do not employ foreigners, we empower local resources and it is we who implement actions on the ground, without intermediaries. This is what makes Fair Future and Kawan Baik unique

Rumah Kambera, the last few months on the site!

Rumah Kambera, some pictures taken during the last 6 weeks. A job 18 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to give the best of ourselves to all those who have great needs in the regions of eastern Indonesia. The foundation develops and implements actions in eastern Indonesia (NTT) and notably in East Sumba. To do so, we decided to coordinate our actions from what is now; “The Fair Future Base Camp” in the eastern regions of the country. In a village near Waingapu called Lambanapu. Rumah Kambera is its name. This -house- is a place of coordination of all our socio-medical, educational activities in favor of children, women, and communities in rural and peripheral regions where access to water, electricity, education, or healthcare is almost non-existent.

Rumah Kambera Base Camp – Covid-19 fight and Clean Water updates

Management of the pharmacy, water supply, Covid-19 program, infrastructures, and day-to-day organizations.
Facing the crisis linked to the pandemic, the lack of water and vital resources, managing the organizational structure in order to optimize the social and medical assistance that we offer. The 24 hours that a day counts are not enough to do everything!

COVID-19 fight. An additional team is leaving for the territories of eastern Indonesia

On August 25, 2021, an additional team will reinforce the staff already on-site, in the fight against the pandemic in the territories of eastern Indonesia. A truck has already left for the provinces of southern Indonesia. It is filled with drugs, antigen tests, masks, disinfectants, and other first-aid equipment to help this population of nearly 300,000 inhabitants who do not receive any form of aid, apart from that which Fair Future and Kawan Baik Foundations bring on site.

Pandemic in the South. We are happy to announce significant medical help!

Substantial aid in the form of a donation, for an amount of CHF 20’000.-, from the Swiss Foundation (but not from its government), was donated to Kawan Baik Indonesia in order to participate in the support of patients with COVID-19, in the regions of eastern Indonesia, particularly in Sumba. These funds, which will be invested in the field, where the real needs are, will be used to acquire oxygen therapy equipment, drugs, food, antigen, and PCR tests.

Clean Water Access Point in Mauliru village – East Sumba

The project to build an access point to clean water, deep borehole, toilets, showers, and washing clothes is underway. Here are the first photos of this project that we must multiply by 40! For a better health, a much better quality of life, increase their income because they will be able to cultivate a garden and especially germinate the seeds.

We activate the “Truck of Life” program by FFF and KBI

Fair Future and Kawan Baik Foundations are activating the “Truck of Life” program! It will leave for Sumba, by road, on June 12th, a 3 days trip! This truck aims to go where no one is going, to provide food, water, solutions for better health, medical care, books, and learning materials, but also the equipment that the foundation needs on-site…

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, for the benefit of the hundreds of families in East Sumba.

Water access, project study in Mauliru, Sumba East

From Sumba where we are now, we study and analyze the needs of people, in terms of access to clean water. We act daily to offer solutions aimed at ensuring that as many people as possible have access to clean water that is not dangerous to health, especially that of children.

FFF Base Camp In East Sumba

Tuberculosis in Indonesia: A social disease affects the poorest communities, those living in difficult conditions. There are hundreds of thousands of new cases in Indonesia, such as HIV, which is not often mentioned here!

Malaria and the vulnerable: Every year, malaria kills thousands of people in Indonesia, in all regions, even the richest. 70% of all deaths are children under five, and affect people and families who cannot access medical care.

Antimicrobial resistances. In here, this is a real health emergency, almost all drugs are available over the counter! This scourge turns simple wounds and easily treatable diseases into causes of death.
