Indonesia for Humanity or Indonesia untuk Kemanusiaan (IKa) continues to be enthusiastic in raising funds or other resources and channeling them to victims of human rights violations and human rights defenders (including women human rights defenders/WHRD). This program is called Pundi Insani, which is a forum for raising resources for marginalized communities and human rights defenders (including women human rights defenders) who are affected by cases of human rights violations. Some of what IKa has done include:

  1. Calling donations for the health costs of elderly survivors of past gross human rights violations, especially victims of the 65 tragedy and the Semanggi tragedy. IKa has collected donations of USD 350,- through Pundi Insani and has distributed grants to two elderly survivors of past gross human rights violations whose conditions are in dire need due to their illness. The grant is financed for laboratories, medicine, treatment and transportation.
  2. Emergency response to COVID-19 for Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRD). The COVID-19 pandemic has an impact not only on the handling of women victims of violence but also on their companions or WHRD. Not a few companions have been exposed to COVID-19 and need help because they do not have health protection insurance. Facing this situation, IKa together with Komnas Perempuan took the initiative to raise solidarity funds for companions of women victims of violence through Pundi Perempuan and Pundi Insani. Solidarity with women human rights defenders needs to be done by providing assistance in the form of PCR test costs and self isolation needs (nutritional food, medicines, supplements). Through the method of sending flyers and scanning barcodes, a total of USD 1.505,- was collected. IKa has distributed it to 25 assistants from 5 women crisis center organizations in Indonesia.
  3. Donations for the elderly survivors of human rights violations for the tragedy 65 were made before Christmas with the theme “Christmas Gifts”. The donation amounting to USD 640 was handed over to Fopperham, an organization supporting survivors on December 24, 2021. The grants have been distributed to 46 elderly victims of human rights violations.

We continue to knock on anyone's heart to help victims of human rights violations as well as human rights defenders (including WHRD) to feel safe and comfortable, protected from discrimination and negative stigma, and encourage open access to socio-economic services. The assistance provided was very helpful in the recovery effort as well as continuing to fight for legal justice for the survivors.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, YSIK campaigned for the donation of health assistance for women victims of violence who are Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRD). They are the front line in providing case assistance and victim recovery services. The distribution of funds is carried out through a service provider organization / woman crisis center.

This initiative was agreed with the National Commission on Violence Against Women to respond to the outbreak of WHRD exposed to COVID-19. Through raising public donations, approximately USD 1500 has been raised. Public donations use social media by including a QR Code and a humanitarian donation bank account. The funds have been distributed to 15 WHRD affected by COVID-19. The health support provided includes PCR tests, food, and vitamins.

In addition, YSIK has also collected data on hundreds of elderly victims of human rights violations. The next stage will be sending the dignity kid and special equipment for the elderly such as wheelchairs, beds, and others.

Hoping for justice for the elderly victims

Victims of past gross human rights violations have not fully obtained their rights to justice, truth and reparation. The long process of waiting for justice for them is in line with the condition of the bodies of the victims who are getting older (elderly), often get sick and not a few have died. However, they also hope that social inclusion can work so that they can safely, comfortably and without fear obtain their basic rights as citizens in the form of social, economic, and cultural access. Unfortunately, this kind of process requires a long process and time.

Yayasan Sosial Indonesia untuk Kemanusiaan (IKa) from January to June 2021 continues to serve the victims by distributing funds that can be used for recovery and emergency response services. In the context of recovery, IKa supports psychosocial recovery efforts through social, economic, and cultural approaches so as to grow social acceptance in society. Furthermore, for emergency response services, IKa provides an urgent fund program to help victims who need hospital treatment and purchase medical equipment needed by victims.

At this time, IKa does not only serve by channeling funding but also provides dignity kits to victims and special needs tools for elderly victims, including personal protective equipment to prevent the spread of COVID-19 which is currently quite high in Indonesia.

Donations in the form of funds or special programs for victims, especially elderly victims, are needed. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has limited the mobility of citizens. The donations collected will be immediately distributed to thousands of victims who currently need assistance in terms of funds, basic necessities or other needs, especially the needs of the elderly.

The donations that are currently being collected are mostly obtained from the public in Indonesia, especially those with solidarity and empathy for humanity. Although the amount of donations raised was not large, IKa still consistently distributed them to victims, especially the elderly victims. Your donation to IKa through GlobalGiving will be very beneficial for victims to fulfill their rights as human beings with dignity in promoting justice among human beings.

Indonesia for Humanity in 2020 continues to raise funds in supporting the peace and justice movement by contributing to the psychosocial and socio-economic recovery efforts the survivors of human rights violations.

We are aware that raising public funds for victims of human rights violations is indeed a difficult task to do. They often face narratives of rejection and persecution from the opposing groups. Where do the victims who are also citizens have to seek justice for themselves?

IKa through its Pundi Insani - Humanity Fund is raising funds for victims of human rights violations and their families for recovery efforts. This effort aims to re-promote their dignity as Indonesian citizens who have equal rights as others. Also, these recovery efforts are done to keep the recollection of human rights violations cases that had happened but have not yet received a clear solution.

The Humanity Fund raises funds from various donors, individual donors, music concerts, and donors from GlobalGiving. In 2020 we raised funds to 91 million rupiah. The funds have been distributed to 3 communities of victims of human rights violations, and individual victims of human rights violations who are currently elderly.

In 2021, the Humanity Fund will continue to fundraise, especially for victims of human rights violations who are elderly. The victims of the tragedy of '65, which has claimed many victims, some who are still alive experienced violence during that time, some of them were sentenced without trial. Now, they are elderly, but this tragedy has impacted many because of the bad stigma and discrimination against the victim's family.

Other human rights cases such as the DOM Aceh case, Talang Sari, Semanggi tragedy, and others experienced similar things. Where the survivors still hope for the process of revealing the truth and reconciliation, which continues to be echoed by the Indonesian government. With this long process and knowing when this dream will come true, the Humanity Fund continues to try to ease the social and economic burden currently faced by survivors and victims. In fact, several times the Humanity Fund has been able to support advocacy efforts for eco-cultural rights so that the community of victims can obtain the same rights as others.
