Treatment for mild injuries prevents infections, blood diseases and other more serious complications. Learning these first steps can really save life and make everyday life a lot safer, especially for kids!

Hello friends, friends, mistress, Lord, dear family,

Background
East Sumba has a population of 252,704 people, 129,389 men and 123,315 women are spread over an area of 7,000 km2. Population density therefore 36 people per km2 (source: BPS East Sumba 2017). The hilly terrain on the island makes it beautiful but also a barrier in some sectors; First, it makes access to the treatment very difficult. Coupled with a lack of trained medical personnel and adequate medical facilities.
One of the villages that we visit includes “Puskesmas” (Public health Center) which is open twice a month to provide basic care; Days to 8 months for children, 16 days for adults.

During our visit to collect primary data, we found many children who were injured, especially on foot because they walked barefoot mostly whether it was to play or go to school. These injuries are not treated, causing infections leading to more serious medical problems later.

Children are not the only ones affected, teenagers and adults are also affected. For example, a young man from a neighboring village is injured in a motorcycle accident. He returned home with swollen legs and open legs, his family could not do anything because they were unaware of first aid treatments such as cleansing or disinfecting the wound. So, we intervened and treat it to avoid infection.

We are the “good friend of Indonesia”, with the support of “Fair Future Foundation”, a partner of “Friends in East Sumba” and we want to give access to first aid to the people of Sumba. Give them first aid equipment and improve their knowledge of the first action to be taken when facing injuries.

The purpose of this program

As part of our action in East Sumba, when the basic need for access to basic health care is not met, we initiate simple and effective action. Learning to care for mild injuries is not a more serious wound, increasing the importance of first aid awareness, before being brought to the hospital for professional doctor care. When the P3K box is easily accessible, make sure the people around it are safe.

  1. Send skills and knowledge to 40 teachers who will receive the P3K box
  2. Highlight the importance of first aid before the patient is transferred to hospital
  3. Give access to first aid for children, at school and in their village
Why this Program

The foundation for many years has to face complicated health situations, sometimes even extremes. The main reason is that access to medical care is not possible for75of the 750,000 inhabitants of Sumba. The lack of medical facilities, the difficulty of Indonesian health system and family poverty is the main reason for this discovery.

  1. Send skills and knowledge to 40 teachers who will receive the P3K box
  2. Highlight the importance of first aid before the patient is transferred to hospital
  3. Give access to first aid for children, at school and in their village
How will we complete the school?

We will equip schools and public areas with a comprehensive pharmaceutical kit to treat the daily tribulations and injuries experienced by children on their way to school.

This P3K equipment (which is actually going to be a small medical closet) will consist of disinfectant, dressing, changing wounds, clearing wounds, making tourniquet, cutting the nails torn, and giving a basic follow up to all these children, who hurt themselves and who don’t heal.

This foundation will offer the necessary teaching for local school teachers, who are very pleased to be able to help children and everyone and all who need it.

Output and equipment

To 40 teachers can then train others in this treatment;

Understanding and changing the management of mild injuries;

Access to basic, facilitated health care for children and locals;

Therefore, we will provide first aid kits for mild injury treatment and follow-up. This Kit will consist of disinfectants, solutions for cleaning cuts, gauze, scrubbing drugs and other important things.

Here are the details:

  1. Plaster in various gauze sizes
  2. Sterile eye sanitary bandages triangular dressing Crêpe rollers rolled pin disposable sterile gloves
  3. Medical Scissors Clamp
  4. Non-alcohol-free cleaning tissue, Sticky tape Thermometer
  5. Hydrocortisone Cream/Calendula Cream antiseptic
  6. Paracetamol/Ibuprofen 125mg and 250mg
  7. Cough medicine syrup for children
  8. Distilled water for eyewash and eye bath
  9. Neutral Eye Drops PH (Visine®) Eye Drops
  10. Vitamin (Caviplex®) for children’s Supplements (Imboost®) for adult Flea drug
  11. Shampoo for diarrhea drugs
  12. Etc…
Training, Exercises | Monitoring, evaluation

First, we’ll do a theoretical teaching module on the use of kits. Then we will move on to a practical part in collaboration with medical personnel Sumba and other volunteers from various areas of activity. In addition, we will also teach them how to deal with accidents during school activities, food poisoning, electric shock, or mild burns.

  1. Before the training, all participants will pass the exam to evaluate what they already know. After training, they will pass another to see the evolution of capacity.
  2. We will also register kits and where they will be placed to collect school data and photo verification kits for actionable.
  3. We will collect, as additional data, the number of educators (the proportion of women and men) involved in the project, their origin (the district, the village). We will use the completed participation form before training.
  4. We will follow the evolution every 6 months by communicating with the teacher regarding changes in habits in the treatment of injuries and availability of tools (what is missing, what to use, etc…)

Good Indonesian Friends

We’ve seen how this changes everything. The children remained in school. People live longer, healthier, more productive, with more time to work, play, and just spend time together.
