BENEFITING: BUMI SEHAT FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 26, 2015
This year, in lieu of birthday gifts, I would like to support The Bumi Sehat Foundation. As a part of my personal journey, I will visit and volunteer in Bali this July. $100=1 newborn life.
Yayasan Bumi Sehat was founded in 1995 as an Indonesian not-for-profit organization. "Yayasan" means not-for-profit, "Bumi" means Earth-Mother, and "Sehat" translates as Healthy. Thus they are the Healthy Mother Earth Foundation. In 2011, they expanded and added Bumi Sehat Foundation International, a 501(c)(3) registered in the United States. They operate two Community Health Education and Childbirth Centers – one in Bali and another in post-tsunami Aceh, Indonesia. At Bumi Sehat clinics you will find a blend of allopathic and holistic medicine, which effectively reduces suffering. Research has proven that our children’s first classroom is the womb. Each baby’s capacity to love and trust is built at birth and in the first two hours of life. By protecting pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding, we are advocating for optimal humanity, health, intelligence and consciousness. Last year alone, the recorded human services provided by Bumi Sehat totaled more than 50,000.
