During December 2010 and January 2011 a team from Family Care Indonesia visited South Sulawesi. The team conducted an inspiring free motivational seminar at the Poly Technic Institute for Health for 93 nurses.

A second seminar was held in the remote area of Takalar in the village of Ko’mara which was attended by 52 student nurses. These nurses are volunteers in the provincial villages (dusun) bringing health care and education to 3,693 inhabitants. It was a privilege to be able to encourage the nurses in their volunteer work.

MARP Project Update

MARP Project Update

On January 7th, two members of Family Care Indonesia along with four representatives from ICAP returned to Dusun Suko village where just one month earlier thanks to the generous sponsorship from ICAP, 105 farmers received the necessary seeds, fertilizer, fungicide and pesticide to replant their devastate fields.

The team was warmly received by the farmers, the village heads and the agricultural advisor. Together they surveyed the progress made in the fields finding all the crops were green and growing well.
