Off the eastern shore of Indonesia is the island of Flores, home of some of the most fascinating wonders of the world. It’s a place where lakes rotate colors seasonally, hominines like the Homo floresiensis could flourish for centuries, and slithering Komodo dragons are free to reproduce and roam the island. These fascinating wonders make Flores of the most interesting places in the world. However, despite all of the beauty found in the island of Flores, many islanders struggle to sustain a hygienic, comfortable lifestyle. Most of the people of Flores rely heavily on tourism, agriculture, fishing and seaweed production to support their daily needs. A significant portion of the population still lives in huts within small villages. Their livelihoods are based on resources that do not provide adequate support, so many islanders live at or below the poverty line of $1.25 a day. With this low-cost lifestyle, even getting a small medical check up is unaffordable. That is why it is so crucial for us to provide free medical treatments to the islanders on Flores. In July, we’re planning to do just that—and we will need your help to make this trip possible. From July 15-27, 2016, our team will be visiting the island of Flores to provide free medical and dental care to over 3,000 patients in six cities. These cities include: Maumere (July 15-16) – We will treat 400-600 patients in Maumere. Ende (July 18-19) We will treat 400-600 patients in Ende. Bajawa (July 20-21) We will treat 400-600 patients in Bajawa. Nagekeo (July 22-23) We will treat 200-300 patients in Nagekeo. Ruteng (July 24-25) We will treat 400-600 patients in Ruteng. Labuan Bajo (July 26-27) We will treat 400-600 patients in Labuan Bajo. For each of these cities, $5,000 will be needed to cover the cost of medicine, medical supplies, transportation and other necessities. If you would like to help sponsor this trip, please click HERE. Your contributions will change the lives of the hundreds of people who can’t afford medical care otherwise. Join us as we make a difference on Flores Island!
Since the foundations of WorldHarvest had been laid down, we’ve had the vision to work together with those who have the heart to help the disadvantaged and poverty-stricken. Our efforts were never meant to be a one-man show. We want you to get involved so we can create an even greater impact on the world together! Our main job has always been to pinpoint the areas that need the most relief. After recognizing those areas, we would then relay it to you, our greatest partner. Our current mission is to provide free medical check-ups for about 3,000 inhabitants on Flores Island, Indonesia. Although the World Bank sets the poverty line at $1.25 a day, most of the islanders live at or below that poverty line. With such a low-cost lifestyle, getting proper medical attention is almost out of the question for these folks. That is precisely why it is so crucial for us to provide free medical and dental relief to those who need it most! Here’s the crackdown: We’re traveling to six cities in Flores to provide medical and dental services. To provide for each city adequately, we would need to gather $30,000 in total. To break it down, that would be $5,000 per city. The funds will cover medicines, dental and filling materials, medical tools, transportation of crew members and medical supplies, and a small appreciation gift to the local medical doctors who are joining our team. These are the cities that would need your sponsorship: Maumere (July 15-16) – We will treat 400-600 patients in Maumere. Ende (July 18-19) We will treat 400-600 patients in Ende. Bajawa (July 20-21) We will treat 400-600 patients in Bajawa. Nagekeo (July 22-23) We will treat 200-300 patients in Nagekeo. Ruteng (July 24-25) We will treat 400-600 patients in Ruteng. Labuan Bajo (July 26-27) We will treat 400-600 patients in Labuan Bajo. If you feel compelled to help any of these cities, please don’t hesitate to donate HERE. We believe that 3,000 lives will be improved significantly because of your willingness to partner with us. Together, we will make a difference!
Febrina Tabitha Cristy grew up in an impoverished community in Indonesia, known as “Cilincing.” She had always wanted to become a doctor and often played “pretend hospital” with her toys when she was younger. WorldHarvest reached out to Febrina’s family when she was only in fifth grade to ask if she would like to be enrolled in our Sponsor-A-Child program. She and her family immediately agreed. Without much wait, Febrina Cristy was picked up by a compassionate sponsor, who paid monthly for her education and secured her position as a student in a local school. Last year, 2015, Febrina graduated from high school. She hasn’t lost sight of her dream to become a medical doctor. She performed so well in her studies that she was accepted in North-Eastern Federal University in Russia! She will be starting college there in September of this year. Febrina says, “I am very thankful to WorldHarvest for the help and support that they have given me throughout this time. There’s one more step left, and I will achieve my dreams of becoming a doctor.” Thanks to our kind sponsors, children like Febrina could go on to achieve their larger-than-life dreams to help other people in the process. Together, we can defeat the chains of poverty. These children are allowed to keep dreaming and achieving when we take care of their financial burdens. To those who are sponsoring right now, we thank you sincerely for partnering with us to change the trajectory of these children’s lives. To those who have not yet sponsored, you can do so HERE. We have hundreds of children just like Febrina, who dream of becoming pilots, engineers, architects, and so much more, but do not have the means to do so. Please help them achieve their dreams today!
