Last visit was to Matakus Island. It took 1 hour to get to the island by fisherman's boat. One said if you're sea sick, just drink the seawater.
In daytime, there is no electricity in Matakus. Children study in school with natural Lamps & Air Conditioners. The generator-powered electricity starts at 6pm which is limited only for 3 lamps & cellphone charging for every house.
At the end, we are pampered with the beautiful beach of Matakus. In love the white sand & clear water!

Next visit is Kabiarat Village which located in the southern part of Saumlaki. We gathered at local hall which facilitated by the village elder.
One thing that amazed me is that these children can sing & dance along for more than 20 songs. They are very bright, they just need access to better education & living.
At the end, the moms surprised us with local flavours: fried banana & cassava with chilli sauce. "It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving" - Mother Teresa
Last week, I took 3 days off and flew 12 hours to Saumlaki, Maluku Tenggara Barat. Together with Yayasan @langkahkasih,@jpccfoundation & Yayasan Batu Karang Nusantara, we gave 315 shoes to pre & primary school students. Shoes might be just accessories for us, but to them, it's a privilege. Everyday they have to walk miles to go to their school.
This is the first village, The Wesawak Resettlement Village. The school condition was very modest. In a simple classroom, they gathered, then we sang & danced together. To see their smiles, it's one of the most fullfilling moment in my life. "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." -Winston S. Churchill
