Capital Campaign for the Community Hospital and Training Center

As a villager in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, what would you do if your child became severely ill and the nearest hospital was 2-12 hours away over rutted roads and impassable rivers? How would you feel if you arrived at the hospital to learn that the cost of treatment is so high you would need to illegally cut and sell trees in the nearby national park, destroying your local habitat, just to be able to afford it? Limited access to high-cost and low-quality health care is a daily reality for families living around the Gunung Palung National Park; a reality that forces impossible choices between short-term survival and long-term wellbeing.

We have a solution: The ASRI Community Hospital and Training Center, which we are currently fundraising to build. Donate today.

What We Do &
Why It Works

Human and environmental health are inextricably linked: healthy people create a healthy planet. When families must choose between saving a child or saving a rain forest, we all suffer. Health In Harmony invests in ASRI, our partner organization, which provides sustainable, long-term solutions that help communities protect the natural resources that keep our planet healthy.

Our approach makes it possible for families to pay for high-quality health care through conservation-oriented non-cash means, yielding improved health indicators. Combined with sustainable livelihood trainings and community partnerships, this program saw a 68% decrease in logging in just 5 years. We are saving lives and saving rain forests.
