It is a blessing to have you visiting our website and learning more about the work we are doing in Indonesia and what we have accomplished because of your support and generosity.
In December 26, 2004 Tsunami and earth quack stricken Indonesia, killed more than 200.000 people. At that time, I was working as a professional HR in private company nearby province, North Sumatera. It breaks my heart to see the misery and devastated situation in effected area. I decided to do something to help. I leave my carrier in profit company and join an organization to give emergency respond. This is the beginning of my journey with humanitarian work.
Our founding father organization, MAP International USA www.map.org arrived in Indonesia to give emergency respond soon after the disaster. Tons of essential medicine brought to country to help the people in effected areas. In 2009, Yayasan Menara Agung Pengharapan Internasional/MAP Internasional was formed and registered in Indonesia. Menara Agung Pengharapan means The Mighty Tower of Hope that refer to Christ as the source of hope in this broken world. This name was inspired by Proverb 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. My journey as Director of Yayasan MAP Internasional Indonesia has been my faith journey with God. God puts women and children and all their concern in my heart.
Yayasan MAP Internasional determines to set and reach International standard financially and programmatically. Offers its service to all people in Indonesia, regardless of their religion, gender, race, nationality or ethnic background. Your support is always needed, together we can make a change, to bring the hope to the people. We feel humble and blessed to work alongside with you.
