Volunteering at Project ASRI means changing the face of global health. It means investing your time where conservation and community health meet hand-in-hand in Sukadana, Indonesia. There, 10% of the world’s remaining orangutan population yet thrives in one of the most diverse rainforests in the world; and 60,000 community members join in an effort to improve their livelihoods and save the Gunung Palung National Park and rainforest. Health In Harmony makes this possible by providing accessible, affordable healthcare and livelihoods through Project ASRI.
To date, Health In Harmony has inspired and sent over 100 volunteers to ASRI where physicians, nurses, animal husbandry specialists, restoration biologists, medical students, architects, engineers, and organic farmers work all together. Every one deeply believes that human health and environmental health are inextricably linked. It is the efforts of these dedicated supporters coupled with the amazing program staff, that have made Health In Harmony’s Project ASRI a success. We truly could not do it without them.
With deepest gratitude, Heath In Harmony acknowledges those dedicated volunteers who have stepped far out of their comfort zone to give willingly of their time, treasure and talent to Project ASRI. Every volunteer is a gift and an inspiration.
Below is a running list of volunteers that have helped on-site since Project ASRI began in 2007. (Please note – some volunteers have requested to remain anonymous.)
