We face a new challenge as due to the Coronavirus crisis, almost overnight, schools in Indonesia had to transfer their regular classes into a virtual environment. Students and teachers lack access to the necessary technology, smartphones, laptops, PCs and internet access.
Vega’s projects are based on one idea. Help people solve problems by themselves. As a result, midwives, health workers and teachers receive needed tools, supplies and training. But, we go further by supporting trash management and help to adapt to climate change.
Join Vega on her yearly mission to deliver donated educational and medical supplies to remote communities in eastern Indonesia and East Timor.
When COVID-19 struck, Pulau Medang turned to the Historic Vessel Vega for help. Together with our FaceBook friends, we organized cash donations for personal protective equipment, infrared thermometers and other important materials. Thanks to a concerted community effort COVID-19 has not made it to the island. This film was produced by Pak Fadli on Pulau Medang.
As one of the young maritime policemen said, “This morning when we came 138 people could not see, now when we leave 138 of my people can see again.” Wairoke Village, Lautém District, Timor Leste.

This year we were lucky to receive a donation of almost new laptops from the German European School Singapore. Those machines are now going a long way to establish computer labs in remote schools. Thank you GESS for making these kids lives a little bit better. There are more to come as our deliveries progress.
You will love this little film about our deliveries of educational and medical supplies to the small island of Medang in Indonesia. We have been assisting this island for almost 10 years and the improvements are noticeable.
