Our partners at Yayasan Bumi Sehat Foundation have published their 2012 international field report which highlights some of the foundation’s remarkable achievements from last year.

Yayasan Bumi Sehat (YBS) operates two maternal, infant, family healthcare clinics in Aceh and Bali in Indonesia. Their mission is to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality and provide sustainable healthcare in their community. They provide general health services, emergency care, prenatal, postpartum, birth services and breastfeeding support, in addition to education and environmental program. Their patients come from all parts of Bali and Aceh and include displaced peoples from other Indonesian islands.

OHO’s partnership with YBS started after our CEO Dr Jimi Wollumbin visited the clinics in Indonesia last year. To support the hard work and dedication of midwives, nurses, doulas, doctors and other Bumi Sehat team workers, OHO has facilitated several donations for YBS.

OHO is passionate about YBS’s work and is exploring opportunities to fundraise for them in Australia.

Here is a snapshot of some of their achievements in 2012.
