Sustainable Development Goals
Bumi Sehat working in small villages, has developed a rewarding model of care that is actively working to achieve each of the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
Here’s what we’ve done as we continue to move the conversation forward:
Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
By eliminating the stress that marginalized families face if they must pay for childbirth services, we prevent desperation sales of family rice fields. Our clinics involve local populations, providing much-needed jobs at fair wages. We exist as a model of cost-effective, quality care that encourages duplication.
Achieve Universal Education
Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
Reduce Child Mortality
We boast a 100 percent rate of breastfeeding. (An infant in Indonesia who is fed infant formula is 300 times more likely to die in the first year of life, compared to a much healthier breastfed baby). We walk our talk: on principle, Bumi Sehat refuses the generous offers of sponsorship from infant formula companies.
We offer free pediatric clinics, health evaluations and nutritional support. Children with special needs may obtain therapies otherwise unavailable to them. We are open 24/7 for emergencies, and provide free transport to give children in remote areas access to healthcare. When critical care is needed, our ambulance and staff are always on-call.
Improve Maternal Health
Combat HIV/Aids, Malaria and Other Diseases
Ensure Environmental Sustainability
Our Youth Center educational activities include instruction on environmental issues. Indonesia’s youth is concerned about the preservation of our planet. Our aim is to provide them with the intellectual tools and capability to do their part in keeping Mother Earth green.
Research has shown that individuals born without trauma have an intact capacity to love and trust. It is our hope that the gently-born Bumi Sehat babies will become stewards of our air, land and water.
