Caritas Finland supports Tresno Ing Siwi (also known as Penghibur) children home in Java, Indonesia. The children home is located in Kelet, Central Java. Starting from autumn 2020, the children home will be run by the local Catholic diocese. At the moment, 18 children and youth live in the children home.
The children home was founded 1984 by a Finnish nurse Anna-Liisa Jaanu-Ismudjito and her husband Suprapto in order to offer a home to children who had suffered from leper and who were abandoned by the society and even their own families. Since then the children home has accommodated orphans, abandoned and disabled children and other children and young people in vulnerable situations.
The self-subsistence of the children home has been developed throughout the years in many ways. The children home has a garden with ducks, hen, and goats, which also brings joy to the children, who participate in tending the plants and the animals. Caritas Finland supports the maintenance and activities at the children home as well as the children’s tuition fees.
