Working Principles

Our actions are guided by medical ethics

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.

Extract | 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.

The world shouldn’t have a border!

Fair Future and therefore a global movement active in the 4th largest country in the world!

Demonstrate independence

The decision to offer social, medical, educational, food aid is based on our needs assessment in collaboration with local authorities, regardless of political, economic, or religious interests. The independence of Fair Future is deeply rooted in the way we are funded.

Know that 99% of our donations come from individual private donors who give small amounts, it gives a lot of responsibility.

Therefore, Fair Future strives to freely assess needs, access populations without restriction, and directly provide the assistance that families, villages, communities really need.

Demonstrate Neutrality

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 allow to think and this, 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 main 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 obviously not synonymous with silence. Our proximity to people in distress implies a duty to raise awareness of their fate in order to – ultimately – help improve their situation.

Fair Future and Kawan Baik seek at all times to draw attention to the needs and sufferings of individuals, families, communities when access to vital needs such as medical care, food, clean water is hindered.

While sometimes our teams can be witnesses to 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 absolutely transparent about the choices we make, 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 and if we find ourselves in an impasse, we must accept and do our best, open a dialogue and find a favorable outcome.

At all times, Fair Future and Kawan Baik conduct evaluations, critical reviews, and debates on our field practices, our positioning with the public on broader social, human, and humanitarian issues. These evaluations are necessary and very constructive in order to improve what we have done, plan to do, and are doing today.

Give for COVID-19 in Indonesia

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.

Some more Information

Water Connections. The deep borehole of MbinuDita – Part#1

From the drilling site, here in East Sumba, MbinuDita village. In the middle of nowhere, at the foot of the hill that hosts our school in SD Mbinudita. Most of the work has started. Several phases will lead us to provide a clean water network to more than 200 families who have never had direct access to it. Where it’s complicated is that the groups of houses are sometimes several kilometers apart. This, therefore, makes the thing technically complex in terms of physical law! This action is fully linked to the “Water Connections” program, initiated by the Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia foundations.

Medical assistance – Malaria in Indonesia, what we are doing?

Risk is present throughout the country, excluding urban areas, and excluding the areas specified: J akarta, Surabaya, Denpasar (Bali), and other large cities are risk-free, including the beach resorts in southern Bali. Sporadic cases of malaria in travelers have been reported from rural areas of Java, Bali (Padangbai area), Bintan, and Lombok islands. The WHO data does not take into account the situation in eastern Indonesia, which is linked to the lack of existing data. Nevertheless, malaria in the regions of Flores, Sumba Timur and Kupang is important in rural villages.

Dengue fever cases still on the rise despite seasonal change

The COVID-19 epidemic has not slowed the onset of seasonal dengue fever across the country. The country has been battling dengue fever since early this year, at a time when state resources have been spent on curbing the COVID-19 outbreak. The similarities between dengue fever and COVID-19 symptoms have also complicated efforts to mitigate the annual spike in cases. The island of Java has contributed the highest average number of dengue hemorrhagic fever cases each year. In recent years, Bali and Borneo (Kalimantan) have had the highest incidence.

Impact of air pollution on health in Indonesia!

Outdoor air pollution is a mix of chemicals, particulate matter, and biological materials that react with each other to form tiny hazardous particles. It contributes to breathing problems, chronic diseases, increased hospitalization, and premature mortality. In Indonesia, this is the cause 50% of morbidity nationwide. How is air pollution affecting Indonesia? More than 80% of the Indonesian population of more than 260 million inhabitants, is exposed to annual average concentrations of pollution, well above the WHO guideline. The country has the fifth-highest loss of years of life in the world due to particulate matter pollution.

Assistance to people in case of malnutrition problems

Social consequences of malnutrition. Undernourished children have weaker immune systems and are thus more susceptible to infections and illnesses. Long-term insufficient nutrient intake and frequent infections can cause stunting, whose effects in terms of delayed motor and cognitive development are largely irreversible.

Medical Assistance for Children’s in pandemic time

Fair Future notes that children are certainly the most affected by the indirect impact of the pandemic than by the viral infection itself. Indeed, we have noticed that the COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on the health of children, but through the increase in poverty, the loss of education and the closure of schools -here in Indonesia the closure of schools since March 2020-, food insecurity, violence as well as increased pressure on health systems and reduced access to personal health care services.

Truck of Life, Truck of Health Medical Care in Kangeli, East-Sumba

Truck of Life, Truck of health. Providing medical care in a remote village in East Sumba, close to Lewa. Desa Kangeli, where more than 120 people, essentially children have received medical care, medical treatments, food, clothes, games, books, and fun with the Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia foundations.

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 …

A “central water point” for 250 people, 39 families from East Sumba

Fair Future has just allocated a fund of IDR.148’000’000.- in order to proceed to the drilling of a deep well in order to provide clean water to a population of 250 people. This includes toilets and a place to wash and create social activities around the theme of water. This water center also aims to improve the health of people, especially children. A project by Fair Future, Kawan Baik, and the Indonesian Red Cross.

Going everywhere to help people from East Sumba

As you can see in these few photos taken by our teams in the field, thousands of people live in difficult conditions. 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.

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!

Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by bacteria (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) that most often affect the lungs. Tuberculosis is curable and preventable.

A social disease, tuberculosis affects more particularly the poorest groups of the population, in particular the homeless people in whom the incidence (approximately 200 / 100,000) far exceeds that of other groups.

In Indonesia, tuberculosis is the leading cause of death in the category of infectious diseases. However, when one considers the general causes of death, tuberculosis ranks 3rd after heart disease and acute respiratory disease at all ages. The number of tuberculosis cases found in 2019 was around 645,000 cases. This figure has increased from the tuberculosis data recorded in 2018, which was in the order of 566.00 cases.

Meanwhile, the number of recorded deaths from tuberculosis based on WHO 2019 data is 98,000 people. This includes 5,300 deaths of tuberculosis patients with HIV / AIDS.

Life-saving anti-tuberculosis drugs are still unaffordable and out of reach for children in high-burden countries like Indonesia.

In 2020, the 30 countries with a high TB burden accounted for 87% of new TB cases. Eight countries account for two-thirds of the total, led by India, followed by Indonesia, China, Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and South Africa.

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.
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.

Antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial agents have played a vital role in reducing the burden of communicable diseases around the world. The WHO South-East Asia Region is no exception. On an Indonesian or "local" scale, antimicrobial drugs, including antibiotics, are very cheap, accessible, and very effective. It is with good reason that many have long considered them to be "miracle drugs".

The situation in Indonesia with this major health problem is absolutely catastrophic. Participating physicians prescribe antimicrobials on all counts, for infections for which any form of antimicrobial is unnecessary. Too large a proportion of sick patients simply no longer respond to the treatments they - sometimes very urgently - need.

The emergence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) creates “superbugs” that make treatment of basic infections difficult (and in some cases impossible) and surgery risky. And while the emergence of resistance in microorganisms is an ongoing phenomenon, its amplification and spread are the results of one thing: human behavior.

The WHO South-East Asia Region is particularly affected. As the risk assessments conducted by WHO have shown, the Region is probably the most at-risk part of the world. Not only does AMR affect the health and well-being of people in Indonesia, it also has ramifications for public health and general well-being. This makes the problem of immense global importance.

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!
