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.

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.

Common diseases we work on

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

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 (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.

Each year, malaria kills thousands of people in Indonesia. 70% of all deaths are children under five years of age.

Malaria

Malaria is a life-threatening disease that spreads when an infected mosquito, bites a person. The mosquito transfers parasites into that person’s bloodstream. Symptoms of malaria include fever and shaking chills. Malaria is common in tropical countries such as Africa and Asia. Malaria is treatable if it’s caught early. The malaria trend in Indonesia is increasing dramatically in recent years. The disease is fairly easy to treat, but access to the most effective treatments remains insufficient. 

90% of all malaria deaths occur due to a lack of access to medical care. Mosquito nets are expensive and out of reach for many.

  • Malaria risk is present below the altitude of 2000 meters
  • High-risk months for Malaria are: January to December

The transmission of COVID-19 in Indonesia has continued unabated and has spread to malaria-endemic areas, in particular the eastern provinces of the country, such as East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) where Fair Future is working, Maluku, and Papua, forcing authorities to intensify their vigilance to avoid a double burden of disease.

According to data from the Indonesian Ministry of Health, an estimated 250,644 cases of malaria have occurred in Indonesia, 85% of which are in rural areas. The high level of malaria endemicity in some areas is a cause for concern, not least because there is no end in sight for the COVID-19 crisis. This figure should nevertheless be taken in the conditional because in a large number of regions of the country, people do not have an identity card or family record book, or people do not have access to medical care.

Plasmodium - a parasite that causes malaria in humans - can damage the immune system, which is why patients with malaria are prone to other infections, including COVID-19.

And there are no new drugs in the development pipeline, which means we may find ourselves without effective options in the future.

A real health emergency, resistance to antimicrobials. It threatens to make simple cuts & easily treatable diseases, are deadly again.

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.

A project such as drilling a well to a depth of more than 60m, in the middle of nowhere, in an area where no one has access to 💦water, is a challenge that requires working with the local community!

Due to these few 15 days of preparation, we had to go to the site every day, tackle the roads that are not, remember to bring all the equipment, organise, demonstrate great adaptability and resistance to Fatigue, climate, lack of sleep. But what immense happiness today! This is the ultimate reward, the joy of seeing the smiles on the faces of these villagers: They are going to have water very soon!

These few images show the work we carried out during the 15 days preceding the start of the drilling, which began yesterday November 08, 2021. A project leaded by 🇨🇭Fair Future Foundation and 🇮🇩Kawan Baik Indonesia from the field in East Sumba.

Those last few 15 day, an access had to be opened in order to transport the equipment on site, certainly more than a ton of material and drilling equipment. Nearly 1500m across virgin fields, tall grass, land, and dealing with the ⛰️relief of the land. Note that no vehicle had previously entered the site of this drilling and it took us an hour to arrive at the site we had chosen last month. An immense feeling of having arrived in a sort of "promised land", where water will soon ⛲spring up!

It was also necessary to build a 🏕️place so that the drillers can spend about 15 days on the site, including sleeping, eating, washing, cooking... But also finding solutions to bring and store the nearly 💧20'000 litres of water it takes to drill a well over 60 meters deep.

In this community live more than 200 families who do not have access to 🚰water or sanitation solutions. Therefore the enthusiasm is formidable, a surge of solidarity is triggered spontaneously, and the help of these poor families in terms of economy, is very touching.
