Thank you for caring for sick kids in Indonesia

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Indonesia, less than 1% of children who have terminal illnesses are able to access palliative care. They and their families are often forced to endure the grief and pain of their last days without any assistance—particularly in rural, under-resourced communities.

Our April Project of the Month,Yayasan Rumah Rachel ('Rachel House'), is working to bring much-needed comfort to these kids and their families by providing in-home palliative care service for patients and their families as well as palliative care training for medical professionals across the country. Since it was established in 2006, Rachel House has cared for more than 800 children and provided training for nearly 9,000 medical professionals and community volunteers—all in service of a future where no child in Indonesia has to die in pain.

“We at Rachel House are beyond grateful to receive such an honor to be selected as GlobalGiving's Project of the Month for April 2022,” Chief Operating Officer Ella Cecilia shared. “For those who live in poverty, when even putting food on the table is already a daily challenge, receiving palliative care at home is a very essential assistance that they would never dare to imagine.”

Cecilia went on to share that your generosity will make it possible for Rachel House to care for four more patients for up to a year, including medical care at their homes, pyschosocial support, and help navigating hospital policies.

Thank you for your commitment to a better world! 

Warmly, 

Donna Callejon

GlobalGiving Interim CEO

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
