A ripple begins in Indonesia

Jun 22, 2011

We’ve been talking a lot about the ripple effect lately … how a single act inspires others, like a pebble dropped in a pond. Here’s one example from Indonesia, where the Amway Care Foundation (Yayasan Amway Peduli) decided to partner Dharmais Hospital and Yayasan Pita Kuning, a cancer foundation, on various programs related to cancer in early childhood.


This partnership inspired programs like hospital ward renovation and an ambulance donation, inspiring Amway distributors volunteer their time.


Amway then collaborated with the University of Tarumanegara’s School of Medicine and School of Communications to organize and sponsored a seminar about childhood cancer. Pediatricians and a famous rapper were invited to discuss the issues and to promote healthy lifestyles. More than 150 students and faculty from the University of Tarumanegara attended the seminar.


It is project sparked an idea among the students to collect funds. For one whole month, they raised money to donate to the cause. And it inspired a group of Amway employees and distributors to visit patients in Dharmais Hospital.

And who knows where the next ripple will emerge.
