Fair Future Foundation is pleased to announce its support for the “Water Connection” program.

We are indeed pleased to announce the funding, for an amount of more than CHF 10,000.-, of a new Central Point of Access to Clean and Potable Water, as part of socio-medical actions, in Rumah Kambera, eastern Indonesia.

Access to water for families is essential for their lives, health, and well-being. In this sense, implementing sustainable solutions is one of our main goals with the Fair Future Foundation. In addition, this program is clearly part of the fight we are leading and engaging against the pandemic here in eastern Indonesia.

This next action of sanitation and access to drinking water will be carried out within the framework of Rumah Kambera, the village of Lambanapu. Showers, toilets, electricity supply by solar panels, bio-filtration, recovery of shower water for another use such as watering.
The Rumah Kambera Water Connection Project will help the Kambera communities and volunteers in their day-to-day tasks for humans and humanity.

This will also be a project to be duplicated and it will be used as a means of learning and will demonstrate how we can carry out so-called “sustainable” projects in terms of access to clean water, sanitation using biological and ecological means, natural and of course, durable.

The main task of this new central water point will be to supply water to our Base Camp, which, as a reminder, functions as the largest social and medical center in the province.

Indeed, we have a strong demand for water supply for sanitation, the community garden and other socio-medical activities carried out within the framework of this magical place.

The communities of Kambera will work with Fair Future and Kawan Baik Foundations to build the sanitation facilities using materials found in Sumba, an economical and careful design as you can see from these plans.

We thank you all very much for your interest, benevolence and always great support. Take good ce of you and you loved ones!

Alex, from Sumba, East Indonesia, the September 3rd, 2021 – Rumah Kambera Base Camp.

Note: Your feedback is extremely important to us and our teams in the field. They give us the courage, the strength, the motivation to help even more! Please let us know your thoughts. thanks in advance

Water Connections Program

One of the Foundation’s tasks is to ensure equitable access to water in quantity and quality, in order to prevent disease and sustain lives. This is to reduce environmental health risks by managing sanitation safely and with dignity. Still, the foundation seeks to involve women and men in the management of water resources, in sanitation by putting in place safe hygiene practices to maximize the benefits for their communities.

The majority of communities with which Fair Future works struggle every day to have access to this fundamental right, which is why our actions for the year 2022 will be focused on creating access to water for these families, so that their health can improve, that they can grow food. But also offer them the opportunity to create an economic activity that will serve their living conditions.

Common diseases we work on

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
