Summary

Lombok, next to Bali, has had serious setbacks in recent years. First a devastating earthquake in 2018, then COVID-19 and the loss of tourism has left the local economy devastated and thousands without homes. People can't afford food, basic goods or healthcare. Many are still living in tents, even 3 years later. Bumi Sehat Lombok operates both a permanent clinic and a mobile health service in the North. The area was already underserved before the quake and healthcare needs are critical.

Challenge

In August 2018, an earthquake struck North Lombok, leaving thousands of people displaced or homeless. This ended tourism income in 2018-2019 and now the economic impact of COVID19 has left the local economy devastated. People cannot afford food, basic goods or healthcare. Many are still living in tents, even after 3 years. Bumi Sehat Lombok established a permanent clinic and mobile health service near Mataram. The area was underserved before the quake and medical need is ongoing.

Solution

Project Director, Ibu Buda Astuti, and her staff are all from Lombok and understand the people and culture. Budi is an experienced senior midwife and nurse. She has worked in Bangladesh with Rohingya refugees, and is skilled at delivering care in low-resource settings and dealing with patients traumatised by natural disasters. A permanent clinic & mobile program provide health/birth services & public health measures, i.e. water filters & mosquito nets, to improve local long-term health outcomes.

Long-Term Impact

The Bumi Sehat Lombok project serves around 3000 people locally and is focussed on improving local health outcomes, especially in the areas of physical injury, trauma, disability and maternal health.
