Health In Harmony Program Director Ashley Emerson recently visited Borneo and brought back this update from our next program site there:
Dear Friends of Health In Harmony,
I recently returned from an extended trip to Borneo to work with our partner Alam Sehat Lestari (ASRI) and support the launch of our second site in the beautiful rain forest communities of Bukit Baka Bukit Rya National Park (BBBR).
Receiving an invitation for the Independence Day Ceremony in the Presidential Palace was something that Pak Noor never dreamed of.

So, who is Pak Noor?

If you are like me, you are also looking at the future wondering, how can we do more?
