August 2012 Project Update

Idul Fitri 2012!

Idul Fitri 2012

In August for Lebaran, Family Care Indonesia member Esther visited 2 areas in Pasar Minggu, Cilincing and Pulau Sembilangan to focus on the yearly program of distributing needed food and personal items (sembako) to the widows and the elderly.

Thru Pt. Metro Indonesia, Esther along with friends distributed 350 boxes of sembako packages designated for the underprivileged and less fortunate for the season of Lebaran.

Other packages directly donated by individual friends were also gathered and added to the sembako distribution.

Thank you, Pt. Metro Indonesia for again channeling sembako packages thru Family Care Indonesia to celebrate and make the Idul Fitri celebration special for the underprivileged.

New Computer Room at the Rumah Kasich Orphanage in Lembang

New Computer Room at the Rumah Kasich Orphanage in Lembang

At the beginning of the month, Family Care Indonesia volunteers had a very rewarding visit to Ramah Kasich orphanage, Lembang to finish the computer / educational room there.

The idea for this project first came about in July when orphanage staff explained the problems they were having with power surges damaging their computer equipment.

We began by making a list of needs needed. These included a 1000-watt stabilizer, computer speakers, electrical needs and paint.

The orphans, who range in age from elementary grades through high school, now have two well-working computer work stations in the newly-painted educational computer room.

We are very thankful for the kind-hearted friends who have sponsored all of the needs and who have made the new computer room possible.
