Indonesia is beaaaaautiful. Being over here with Save the Children for the #imapiece Craftivist Jigsaw Project to report back to you good crafty folks on the work they are doing to fight hunger is a real honour. Each day we get up, jump in the Save Mobile and head off to visits schools, health centres, villages, and farms. The people are welcoming and ever so lovely, the scenery is amazing and everything Save are doing is fascinating.
So much so that I’ve now taken too much video to be able to edit into something watchable while I’m here. So I’ve decided to stick to a few images and explain things with a bit more time when I get back.
So here’s the Save Mobile that we jump into each day with Mustafa, our trusty driver. It can go pretty much anywhere. Even if I doubt it can sometimes.
When I say beautiful I really mean it. It is jawdroppingly lovely here. This means that it’s a bit tough to get my head around how somewhere so utterly gorgeous can have any troubles at all. People are going hungry here? Seriously?
That’s why I’m doing my best to learn the causes behind Indonesia’s hunger problems so I can explain it more clearly. There’s a lot to take in. My brain is getting a bit wobbly.
But I have talked to some goats that Save has helped a village farm…
I have tasted some yummy local foods…
I’ve chased some chickens…
And I have met some of the sweetest and happiest kids ever. School uniforms should always be these colours.
Tomorrow is my last day in the Bener Meriah area. I’m going to keep going and keep sewing. Hope you folks are still sewing too. Join us!
