ASRI's Community Hospital and Training Center continues to roll along here in Sukadana as we enter our third month of construction. So far, progress has been stunningly smooth, with the overall timeline tracking ahead of schedule and far fewer headaches than you would normally expect for a project of this size and complexity. We can all confidently attribute the project's preliminary success to the commitment and dedication of the design and management teams, as well as the positive and transparent relationship with the contractor.

SAVING LIVES AND VITAL HABITAT ONE PRECIOUS STEP AT A TIME
At Health In Harmony, with our partner ASRI, we are forging a model that is measurably changing the face of global health and conservation. How? By saving lives and restoring vision at Klinik ASRI, while simultaneously working side-by-side with and training health care providers, traditional birth attendants, and midwives in exchange for restoring the rain forest, protecting critical orangutan habitat with community-based guardianship, teaching healthy, sustainable organic agricultural methods, and providing goats to widows. And, we are getting ready to build a beautiful community hospital that will serve as a center for conservation education, training, and a foundation for replicating the Health In Harmony model.
