What is this project led by Fair Future about? Together, we offer assistance to people according to their real needs. It doesn't matter what country they are from, what religion they belong to, or what their political affiliations are. We prioritize those who are in the most serious and immediate danger. As you know, Fair Future for more than 15 years has been offering medical assistance to the most vulnerable people, those affected by epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care. Over the years, the foundation has evolved a lot in its approaches to medical care. For example, access to clean, non-lethal water has become one of our top priorities because water is simply life. Thank you very much Kawan
Together, we offer assistance to people according to their actual needs
Impartiality is the foundation of Fair Future’s mission. Our Swiss organization implements aid, relief and projects without discrimination, prioritizing the communities most immediately in need or at risk.
Access to better health has always been the foundation’s primary mission, and healing people simply by giving them water is incredible for us.
The decision to offer social, medical, educational and food assistance is based on our assessment of needs in collaboration with local authorities, regardless of political, economic or religious interests. Fair Future’s independence is deeply rooted in the way we are funded.
You should know that 99% of our donations come from individual private donors who give small amounts, it’s a lot of responsibility for us, and we are indebted to their trust.
Therefore, Fair Future strives to freely assess needs, access populations without restriction, and directly provide the assistance that families, villages and communities need.
Going wherever necessary, sometimes where no one has ever been to treat, operate, make people healthier. But also assess what they need and propose solutions.
Fair Future and Kawan Baik do not take sides in political disputes and do not support the programs of political parties. We do an act of pure neutrality, but we are allowed to think in a personal capacity only.
Sometimes Fair Future cannot access a region for military, political, or natural disaster-related matters. Even if we will do everything possible to be able to access it, sometimes access is simply refused to us because of insecurity or because the primary needs of the population are already covered.
We provide social, medical, food, logistical assistance to people affected by disasters, epidemics, or exclusion from healthcare. The Fair Future teams are made up of healthcare professionals, logistics and administrative staff, all recruited locally. Our actions, way of doing and thinking projects are guided by our code of ethics, common sense, the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality.

Witnesses and testimonies
Neutrality, on the other hand, is not synonymous with silence. Our proximity to people in distress implies a duty to raise awareness of their fate and ultimately help improve their situation.
Fair Future and Kawan Baik seek to draw attention to the needs and sufferings of individuals, families, and communities when access to vital needs such as medical care, food, and clean water is hindered.
While sometimes our teams can witness acts of violence (social, financial, political, physical, psychological …), we encourage them to talk about it by noting the absolute facts.
Likewise, when another organization or government, in response to a crisis responds to that crisis in an abusive manner, it is the duty of Fair Future and Kawan Baik to report these facts.

Demonstrate transparency and accountability
Fair Future and Kawan Baik assume and are responsible for reporting our actions to our beneficiaries and donors. We want to be transparent about our choices, but we cannot fight on equal terms with political or governmental decisions linked to new laws.
Also, we fight all forms of corruption, but we cannot endanger the members of our teams. Therefore, if we find ourselves in an impasse, we must accept and do our best, open a dialogue, and find a favourable outcome.
At all times, Fair Future and Kawan Baik conduct evaluations, critical reviews, and debates on our field practices and our positioning with the public on broader social, human, and humanitarian issues. These evaluations are necessary and very constructive to improve what we have done, plan to do, and are doing today.

Testimony and speaking out
Our proximity to communities and families in distress implies a duty to raise awareness to improve their living conditions or their situation.
The Fair Future or Kawan Baik teams may witness violence, injustice, and deliberate acts and must testify.
Testimony is the act of becoming aware, in private or public, of what we see or have seen happening in front of us and by documenting these acts, we report.
At times, Fair Future may speak out publicly to highlight a crisis, expose abuses, challenge the diversion of assistance, or speak out against policies that restrict access to health care, medical care, education, food and all other forms of social care.
Supply and logistics
Fair Future already helps thousands of families every year but we are struggling!
However, one of our main problems is that we don’t have enough equipment and not enough medicine when we should always have enough material for the work to be done and for the patients to be treated.
In particular for the response to emergencies or in the event of natural disasters, when supplies must be needed within 24 hours.
But also for long-term programs, where a regular supply of equipment and drugs is essential. Fair Future and its teams cannot respond to and deal with all requests due to a lack of resources.
Minimization of risks for everyone
The actions carried out on the ground by the Fair Future and Kawan Baik teams are based solely on needs, regardless of political, economic or other interests.
On the ground but also everywhere else, our teams communicate and dialogue on a daily basis with communities, village authorities and regional governments, to facilitate access and supply to medical care, clean water, and food sufficient for the inhabitants of villages and rural communities.
Fair Future and Kawan Baik do everything possible to minimize the risks for our teams and the villagers to provide them with what they need.
The Fair Future teams
“You never know when it will happen, but it will happen again.”
When a health or social crisis affects one of the regions in which we are already, the Kawan Baik (good friends) of Fair Future who are present will mobilize to assist.
Fair Future, as it often does, can mobilize personnel from the region with whom we often work, including a group of over one hundred volunteers. Specialists can also be sent on-site from one of its logistics bases in Denpasar or Waingapu. Our teams include medical personnel, logisticians, water specialists, and project managers.
