Fair Future base camp in eastern Indonesia. This is where everything happens, miracles too!

Rumah Kambera – Fair Future Foundation Base Camp in East Sumba

Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children

Extract | 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.

For their future and their health

Fair Future incorporates in all its choices and decisions taken in the context of its actions and field programs, the notions of risks for communities, what is good or bad for them, for people, children, villages.

And for years, we have for mission to develop, support and create humanitarian programs and actions linked to education, training, and medical care. This is why Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia have created Rumah Kambera, our Base Camp in the Eastern part of Indonesia.

Rumah Kambera in few words, what is it?
A workplace, social center, an open door for all. A home for them, for us.

    COVID-19 in Indonesia, a dramatic situation

    Take care of people, do what the state does not! Fair Futur acts to detect, test, treat and vaccinate the victims of the Pandemic. No Antigen tests, no vaccine (here in Sumba for example, hardly anyone is vaccinated). Also, the health centers are closed because they are infected and the medical staff is sick.

    There are very few doctors and other medical personnel who are still at work. This is linked to medical and infectious factors, but also and above all because the staff is no longer paid, therefore they no longer come to work.

    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.

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.

    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!

    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.

    Participate in the drilling of a well, dedicated to 40 families, 250 people!

    Providing clean water to all those who no longer have access to it, Fair Future, the Indonesian Red Cross are starting a program to provide access to drinking water for 42 villages, which for two months have no more water at all.

    Sumba disaster, current situation, what we are going to do next!

    The food crisis, the crisis linked to the lack of water, the lack of access to healthcare … What Fair Future is doing to remedy many problems on the spot, here in Sumba East. Well drilling, construction of community water points, free medical care, planning of the reconstruction phase …

    Fair Future response to the Sumba East disaster in pictures

    Thousands of patients, medical care, hundreds of wounds to treat, a few tons of drugs donated, hundreds of kilos of vitamins, minerals, tens of tons of food, hundreds of thousands of liters of water, nearly 100 water tanks, including metal frames, fittings, pipes so that families, villages, communities, and vulnerable people do not die of hunger or thirst.

    Photos taken by our teams related to the Sumba East disaster

    These Images were taken by the teams of Fair Future and Kawan Baik Foundations. They show the extent of the damage as we all experienced it there. Being the only NGO on site, Fair Future coordinated the activities of tens (hundreds) of volunteers, from its strategic center in Lambanapu (Rumah kambera)

    Common diseases we work on

    Dengue virus (DENV) infection is a major cause of acute febrile illness in Indonesia.  And a high cause of death.

    Dengue Fever

    Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by dengue virus infection (IVD) which is transmitted through the bite of the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes.

    Dengue virus infection is an endemic disease that appears throughout the year, especially in the rainy season in various tropical and sub-tropical regions including in Indonesia. The rainy season is an optimal condition for breeding mosquitoes, so there can be an increase in cases that are high and fast. According to WHO, Indonesia is the second-largest country with dengue cases among 30 endemic regions.

    Dengue is a severe, flu-like illness that affects infants, young children, and adults, but seldom causes death. Symptoms usually last for 2–7 days, after an incubation period of 4–10 days after the bite from an infected mosquito. Dengue is widespread throughout the tropics, with local variations in risk influenced by rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, and unplanned rapid urbanisation.

    The COVID-19 pandemic is putting enormous pressure on the health and management systems of Dengue and tens of thousands of cases have not been managed properly, increasing mortality from this viral disease. Fair Future deals a lot with cases of Dengue, especially in poor villages, where no waste management is in place.

    The case fatality rate (CFR) has been estimated at more than 20% of those infected. Knowing that Dengue fever affects millions of people every year, this makes it one of the most important causes of death in Indonesia. Complications can lead to circulatory system failure and shock, and can be fatal (also known as Dengue Shock Syndrome).

    In some cases, Dengue infection is asymptomatic – persons do not exhibit symptoms. Those with symptoms get ill between 4 to 7 days after the bite. The infection is characterised by flu-like symptoms which include a sudden high fever coming in separate waves, pain behind the eyes, muscle, joint, and bone pain, severe headache, and a skin rash with red spots. Treatment includes supportive care of symptoms.

    There is no antiviral treatment available. The illness may progress to Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF). Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, bruising, and uncontrolled bleeding.
