History of BPU ANAK SEHAT
They scavenge all sewers in Jakarta. Low educated, illiteracy, and lack of skills leave them with no other choice than the above job.
Their irregular pattern of life, consuming unhealthy food and drinks as well as the "pollution" caused by the various medicine have brought them to be a group of people who are prone to illnesses from critical infection like diarrhea, infections in the respiratory system, skin, eyes and to other fatal illnesses. Things get worse because generally they sleep at any places like the porch of shops buildings, under the bridge, at the railway station or at the bus stops.
Poor urban community will surely want to find professional help when they are confronted with sickness. They want to go to the doctors, midwives, clinics, medical centers, or hospitals. But they are often unable to do so, because they cannot afford it. Their minimum and unstable income makes it impossible for them to ask for professional help despite the fatal sickness. This will put them into critical situation.
On April 24, 2006 Balai Pengobatan Umum (Public Health Center) ANAK SEHAT was officially established. This center develops it's activities, promoting services with warmth, patience, and friendliness.
