IDBH Senso for UN Sustainable Development Goals
Indonesia has made progress on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio, and the spread of terminal viruses such as HIV/AIDS. However, at present many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.
IDBH Senso aims for a significant positive change that addresses the pressing social challenges of those people in Indonesia who are in most need. Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set by the United Nations means helping to realize a better world for people and planet in 2030 to ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being of all ages is essential to sustainable development as mandated on the SDG’s Goal 3.
HIDUP Our CSR Program
HIDUP means “Life” in Bahasa Indonesia, but for us, it also means Health Impact through Indonesian DUtch Partnerships. Our strategy to extend HIDUP to the community is through partnerships and supports communities that are committed to the SDG set by the United Nations.
At the forefront of our social enterprise in the health and well- being sector, striving for impact is more than just a tagline. IDBH Senso realized the importance of sustaining ethical and social impacts and is visualized through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. In January 2020, we launched our CSR partnership with the Rachel House Foundation (RHF). Aligning to our vision to educate and equip medical professionals and local communities with palliative care skills and knowledge, RHF became our first partner listed as our CSR recipient.
A pioneer since 2006, RHF provides specialized medical care (known as palliative care) to children from marginalized communities living with serious illnesses such as cancer and HIV/AIDS. Driven by the belief that no child should ever have to live or die in pain, their highly-nurses provide home-based care, free of charge. IDBH Senso supported RHF with donations generated from sales of personalized wooden products and gift sets via SENSO Retail, our sister company in the Netherland and from some of her local partners, like IDGift, Tegeltjes.com and Clicki.com. The collective commitments from our customers and partners inspired by the ‘give-back’ approach have enabled us to support our CSR partners’ mission in palliative care for children with terminal illnesses in Indonesia.
In September 2020 IDBH launched a research project on challenges in palliative care for children with serious and life-limiting illness such as cancer and HIV in Indonesia. A research project performed by students from HAN University of Applied Sciences, department Nursing in the Netherlands.
Rachel House provides specialised medical care (known as palliative care) to children from marginalised communities living with serious illnesses such as cancer and HIV AIDS. Established in 2006, they have pioneered palliative care in Indonesia. Driven by the belief that no child should ever have to live or die in pain,
their highly-skilled nurses provide home based care to children from some of the most marginalised communities in Jakarta, free of charge.
We also educate and equip medical professionals and local communities with palliative care skills and knowledge to provide care for those in desperate need.
