INFORMES DE LOS PAÍSES: Kurdistán Hermosa, personal local de salud

Por Lindsay Quemaduras, EBPP Voluntario

Kurdistán Indah dado EBPP IDD (trastorno por deficiencia de yodo) prog conciencia a la comunidad

Las mujeres que se divorcian de sus maridos y se convierten en madres solteras que trabajan a través de la elección son increíblemente raro en Bali.

Pero fueron estas circunstancias exactas que llevaron 27 años de edad del Kurdistán Indah a las puertas de EBPP, where she became the first local woman to actively help the villagers.

She admits her main motivation was initially to support her child – but said the charity has given her opportunities she never dreamt of. She said: “The office is very close to my house in Ban. My priority as a single parent was to feed my child, so that is why I first came to the charity. But secondly, I wanted to help out. If a person can come from England (David Booth) to help people here, then I can do it.

“There have been a lot of great changes. There were communities really left behind, with lots of health problems. But now it’s 99.9 per cent different.”

She said that because of EBPP, she has an education, she can feed her child and she has helped make huge improvements to the communities: “When we first went up there it was pretty terrible. There were people with open wounds, terrible illness. But I helped give everyone polio vaccinations. It’s pretty moving to know that I helped have a good impact on those villages.”

“And I was the first local women there, among all those men. I felt very proud of that.” [Editor’s note: EBPP did have 2 other Balinese women on staff – senior nutritionist and Education Team leaderwhen Kadek joined in 2005 but from other regions of Bali]
