Our Lombok clinic is open now and fully operational. Our Director, Ibu Budi, has hired a staff of six midwives to make sure that midwifery and nursing care is available around the clock. Each shift must have at least two midwives on duty and at least one senior midwife must be on duty at all times. In Indonesia, a midwife is also a trained and registered nurse.

The first patient to have her baby in the brand new clinic (instead of in a tent) was Ibu Nengeh. She gave birth to her fourth baby on 20 April, weighing in at 3350 grams. Ibu Lia and Ibu Ayu, two of our midwives, helped her to give birth. Ibu Nengeh's husband is a driver and hasn't been working much in the past year due to the pandemic. Both parents expressed great relief at having a birth where they could pay by donation as any money they have needs to be spent on food. 

Lombok continues to experience small quakes and this means that the local community, already dealing with PTSD and having lost homes and businesses they can't afford to rebuild, continue to face ongoing financial, mental and physical stress. However, one bright spot in their lives is that they can receive free healthcare and birth services at Bumi Sehat and this removes the financial stress from pregnancy and birth for them.

For two years following the devastating 2018 earthquakes in Lombok, we provided disaster relief healthcare from tents. Battling the elements was ongoing, as our teams and patients not only endured aftershocks, they also faced repeated destruction as monsoon season rain, mudslides and storms destroyed the tents where they lived and worked. When the floodwaters receded, our teams would dry up, clean up, repair and re-erect the tent clinic, and immediately resume patient care.

We had to enable our Lombok team to have a proper permanent clinic to support patient care. And we were finally about to do this. Construction was completed in September 2020, and our Lombok clinic is now open and operational.

Our deepest gratitude to Nurse Liman Wijaya, his wife Mimi and two daughters who weathered many hardships, including relocation from Aceh, in order to serve. Midwife and Executive Director Budi Astuti, her husband Bapak Tunjung, Bapak Sandiyasa and Bapak Pastika all worked tirelessly, from finding the ideal land in the area of greatest need, to overseeing the construction of the new clinic every step of the way. We are so grateful for our hardworking staff and for all our donors.
