Clean Water Access

Access to clean water is very important to meet everyone’s daily needs, but not everyone can get access to clean water. Up until 2018, only 72% of Indonesia has access to clean water, this means there are still 28% of Indonesians who do not have access to clean water from the target of 100%. All Indonesians have access to clean water as stipulated in the 2015-2019 RPJMN. Lack and limited access to clean water also provides long-term health effects for the community, where by consuming dirty water every day can cause serious illnesses such as diarrhea, typhus, stunting and even death. HFH Indonesia has implemented a clean water access program in areas that need it (West Java, Banten, Bangka Belitung Islands, Riau Islands), namely:
  1. Construction of reservoirs / reservoirs of clean water.
  2. Distribution of clean water through connecting pipes from the main tub to the houses.
  3. Clean Water Filtration.
  4. Clean Water Installation.
  5. Public MCK Development.

A Story from Banjarnegara Village

Since April 2018 Habitat for Humanity Indonesia together with POSCO Korea has carried out a mission to create decent housing for the poor in Ciwandan Subdistrict, specifically in in Kubangsari Village, Tegal Ratu Village, Banjarnegara Village and Samangraya Village in Citangkil District.

Habitat Indonesia has helped to build approximately 30 toilets for residents who do not have toilets and healthy sanitation. With houses equipped with toilets and sanitation, the family’s economy will be helped because family income that was previously collected to repair houses that are damaged every time, can be allocated for other family needs, for example children’s education. “Habitat helps build individual toilets and sanitation in Ciwandan sub-district, making Banjarnegara village successful and admired,” said Ciwandan Sub-district Head, Junaedi.

Proper Sanitation

HFH Indonesia strives to improve access to community sanitation in various regions in Indonesia. The Open Defecation Free (ODF) program is one of Indonesia’s HFH programs that aims to enable people to have access to proper sanitation individually and publicly and reduce the risk of serious diseases and death. The implementation of the program related to proper sanitation access is as follows:

  1. Construction of individual toilets
  2. Construction of public toilets
  3. School toilet construction
  4. Construction of individual and communal septic tanks
Increasing public awareness of the importance of STOP BABS through campaigns, training and periodic monitoring. Currently HFH Indonesia is working on 100% STOP BABS for 5 (five) years in Mauk District and Kronjo District, Tangerang Regency, Banten Province, by reaching more than 13,000 families who do not yet have access to proper sanitation. In addition to Banten Province, HFH Indonesia is also open to implementing proper sanitation programs in other areas in need.

Tegalsari Kelurahan - Tegalsari Subdistrict, Surabaya City 100% Free of Open Defecation

Tegalsari Urban Village is one area that is located right in the heart of Surabaya. This area is directly adjacent to one of the famous shopping centers in the city of Surabaya, Tunjungan Plaza. The densely packed and densely populated residential area is located right behind the plaza. Many boarding rooms were built to meet the occupancy needs of workers in the plaza causing a narrow and cramped residential area. Around the settlement flowed a tributary stream, which stretched along the city of Surabaya. It is this tributary flow that is functioned by the Tegalsari village community to dispose of sewage, garbage left over from human activities and feces. Although Tegalsari residents already have a decent bathroom and toilet, they do not have a septic tank as a requirement for a healthy toilet. Around 2015, the Tegalsari area received a healthy sanitation program intervention by the Korean HFh and HFh Indonesia. This program succeeded in building 250 family healthy latrines (construction of family toilets and construction of septic tanks for those who do not yet have it), and succeeded in makling Tegalsari village area 100% free from open defecation for the Surabaya city area. This proud achievement cannot be separated from the collaboration of HFH Korea, HFH Indonesia and the local Puskesmas where Habitat undertook the process of building its physical facilities while the local Puskesmas conducted a training process and increased public awareness of the importance of healthy hygiene behavior.
