We’re teaming up with families across Indonesia to overcome hunger, poverty, natural disaster and displacement by transforming vulnerable & diverse communities.
In West Timor, we work closely with families to secure their food, economy and health. Communities improve their access to clean water, basic sanitation, health awareness and COVID-19 vaccination. Women establish savings groups to start or expand businesses. Parents ensure their children have nutritious meals. Together, we’re moving towards zero hunger and towards greater well-being during pandemics.
In South Sulawesi, our focus is on strengthening resilience affected by climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. Families have adapted the ways that they grow food and find new ways to earn a living. Vulnerable groups participate and have been targeted in health awareness activities and vaccine intake.
In Jakarta, CWS welcomes refugee women and unaccompanied children into several group homes. These vulnerable refugees have a safe space where they can live, get education access, make friends and replace fear with hope.
Many programs, with one vision: strengthening resilience. Our neighbors live healthy lives in safety.
