We had the idea of bringing toys for the thousands of children on the border of Indonesia and Timor Leste and our vision became reality with unexpected support from friends and sponsors. We visited 6 schools, 5 villages at the border, 3 churches and a refugee camp near Atambua.

Team to Medan Area

Team to Medan Area Family Care Indonesia volunteers Nathalie and Pierre travel to Medan to visit an orphanage in Tuntungan. They gave some books as well as a donation to help towards the expansion of the buildings. The orphanage receives children from the Mount Sinabung area where parents send their children to the orphanage because their own area is at risk of being hit by the lava from volcano.
