As all members and you who regularly visit our site already know, it was a while ago since we had any official activities in SIS Malmo / Lund. This state has by no means changed, but a few faithful members have continued the Godchild-project with the six Indonesian children sponsored by SIS Malmo / Lund in Banda Aceh on the island of Sumatra. These sponsored children and their families were hit hard by the great tsunami disaster of 2004.
The representatives of the SIS Malmo / Lund-project now wish to continue the voluntary sponsorship of these six children and therefore appeal to the public for support. All monetary gifts are documented and donated with the amount in full, to the children in Aceh. We have no administrative costs as all the work, including the work of our representative in Aceh is completely voluntary.
Follow this link to read more about the project.
Anybody (members as well as non-members) are welcome to contribute with material.
Material can consist of all sorts of things, from photos, travel experiences, short stories, essays etc. It should have one thing in common though, Indonesia! Also expatriots both Swedish and Indonesian are welcome to contribute. Do you have a specal interest that you want us to convey?
Please e-mail the material to: email@example.com and enclose your contact information. Feel free to phone me on working days between 18:00-20:00 (Swedish time) on telephone number +46 (0)46 240 30 87.
Kind regards, Andreas

SIS Malmö/Lund's Godchild Project in Aceh 2011:
Siti, Rizka, Naziratur, Nabila, Mahrul and Fatah with their teachers in front of the school in Banda Aceh.
The Swedish-Indonesian Society Malmö / Lund has six sponsored Indonesian children in Banda Aceh in Sumatra. We collect money to pay for the schooling of these children, who all became victims of the tsunami disaster of 2004. They belong to a large group of people with small means, who could not afford to go to school without our help. We contribute to school fees, school uniforms and school books.
SIS M/L has a representative in Aceh, the architect Yuri Raharjo, who previously studied at the Faculty of Engineering at Lunds University, LTH, in Lund. He ensures that the money GOES RIGHT and does so on an entirely voluntary basis, that is, free of charge. All donations to the cause will go uncut to the children in Aceh, as we, SIS Malmo / Lund, do not deduct any administrative costs whatsoever.
The project has so far been very successful. Therefore, we will continue to raise money for the school year 2011. If you want to contribute some money - Make a bank transfer to SIS Malmö/Lund's account at SPARBANKEN ÖRESUND, Clearing Number: 9300 (formerly Sparbanken Finn), Account Number: 0071118061.
When making the transfer, please enter your telephone number in the Message Box and we will send progress reports every year, or call Nuraeni & Sigvard, Phone: +46 (0)46-12 24 73.

Other highlights among the organization's past activities is for instance the much appraised book donation to the Malmö City Library , on October 11th 2003, where almost one thousand childrens books where donated by Gramedia , Indonesia's largest publisher, in which SIS Malmö/Lund acted as initiator and intermediary.
Another donation that SIS Malmö/Lund took from it's own funds, is the SEK 10.000 , which was sent on May the 3rd, 2005 to the Indonesian Red Cross ( Palang Merah Indonesia ).
The decision was made at an extra-held board meeting on January 2nd, 2005, where it was decided that the organization should help and send aid to the victims of the tsunami-torned areas in Indonesia. The donation in january, went directly to the humanitarian programs in the province of Aceh and was a first step in a series of projects that SIS Malmö/Lund is about to carry out.
** SIS Malmö/Lund has also started in raising funds for the building of an orphanage and a school in Aceh (North Sumatra) , with the goal of raising SEK 300.000.
