The Sumba Project
Sumba is an island in the Indonesian archipelago where malaria, tuberculosis, malnutrition and dysentery are rife. With very little access to health care hundreds of Sumbanese people die every year due to preventable diseases.
A new H4H initiative, the Sumba Project has been convened by a group of passionate and dedicated Griffith University students in conjunction with the Sumba Foundation Australia. By running a number of fundraising and awareness initiatives for the students and the wider community, the team is hoping to see their efforts turn into tangible results over the next year or so - working towards facilitating a group of students over to Sumba itself to see the difference they can make for themselves.
Their current focus is aiming to help lower the preventable deaths by fundraising toward the Sumba Foundation’s malaria nets program - a simple but truly effective way of making a real difference. Check out their website for more info! And watch this space for upcoming events.
