We are so happy to hear that last month we managed to locate the family of baby Ahma who was abandoned by her mother. MCK’s volunteer Inge J and with the help of nurses from Cipto Neonatal managed to track down the family. Let’s hope baby Ahma gets all the love and attention for growing up.

It’s been a month since our last visit at Cipto and today we met an array of patients that MCK are supporting. In the Infectious ward, Sahrul is 2.5 years old weighing only 5kg. He is suffering from severe malnutrition, Tuberculosis, and HIV (the latter being contracted through his mother). This is his second hospitalization and this time he’s been receiving treatment for two weeks now. Doctors are keeping a watchful eye on him.


Pictured below is Jelsia who is nearly six years old with Congenital Heart Disease. Unfortunately she also has an infection in her brain resulting in her left arm and left leg partially immobile. She will be undergoing surgery this Friday to remove the infection in her brain. We send her warm wishes to stay strong.

Subiatto is fifteen years old and we were sad to hear that he has been sick for five years now. He’s been hospitalized for four weeks suffering lung infection. Doctors have already operated on him to drain a lot of fluid out from his right lung. Currently on antibiotics, his condition is being monitored through lab checks to find out the cause of the lung infection.


Two year old Sinta has Ascariasis (also known as worms) in her stomach. She was admitted two days ago in ER in which doctors found signs of worms in her vomit and faeces. She did not want to be disturbed but we were happy to hear that she may be able to return home to Cengkareng tomorrow.


Over at the cancer ward, we met gorgeous looking eight year old Prichilla from Bogor. She is diagnosed with acute Leukemia and has been receiving chemo treatment for three weeks now.

Next we met four year old Fajri suffering from acute AML. She was diagnosed one month ago and is now receiving the necessary treatment to get well. We adored her big smile when she allowed us to take a photo of her.

Another girl we met with an adorable smile was eleven year old Dewi. She has Neuroblastoma (tumor found in her abdomen) and her eye problem came as secondary. Unfortunately her cancer is already in stage four. She was not shy to talk to us and proudly showed off her bracelet. We hope her well in her treatments.

Ten year old Wawan is undergoing chemo treatment for Leukemia. Doctors class him as a high risk patient because of his poor response to the treatment. His mother told us he is the youngest in the family.


Another patient who we met in stage four of the cancer was eleven year old Yongki. He has cancer in the ear, nose and throat and the tumor has been spreading. Doctors cannot operate on him yet until the spread is controlled. He is undergoing chemo treatment which is helping.


Lastly we met five year old Mutia from Bekasi with an unusual case of tumor in her liver (which normally occurs in adults). She has already been operated to remove the tumor and will continue with chemo treatment.


At the Neonatal ward, we were very honored to have Dr. Rina showing us around. There was a special case of conjoined twins which had to be isolated in a special area. Both girls are joined on the hip bone. One baby is fit and well whilst the other is not doing so good. The twins can be separated as they don’t share the same organs but doctors are worried that the weaker baby may not survive so they have decided not to operate on them until the other gets well.

Lastly we met the most tiniest baby so far. Born just seven hours ago, 26 weeks premature and weighing only 700gsm. Baby Fitriani is suffering from problems in her lung and nurses had to help her with breathing apparatus.

Since the launch of our website, news has travelled abroad attracting more new donors. A special thanks to Shelly & Ringo from Hong Kong, and Dicky & Gerrit from Holland who all made a kind donation.


Yesterday we made another hospital visit to Dharmais to check on our patients. Here’s our updates so far.

Edo, (admitted to Dharmais Hospital in March this year with a highly malignant tumor) was not doing so good yesterday. He was suffering from a high temperature and a loss of appetite due to an infection. He was quite content with just watching some television and didn’t want to be disturbed. He allowed us to take a photo of him. So let’s all send him big wishes to get well soon.

Rifaldi (who was suffering from ALL) has gone home! Yeh! his good friend Ibrahim unfortunately cannot go home yet and is still undergoing treatment for ALL.

We met five new patients that MCK are supporting. Fifi, from Banten is receiving her second stage of chemotherapy treatment and unfortunately had to have one of her leg amputated. Her father was keeping her company and we are sad to learn she is in stage four of the cancer. We send her blessings to stay strong and well.

Siti Nur Aini, is from Tangerang and suffers Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). She is doing well and did not want to be disturbed.

Mutia, was a patient at Cipto Hospital before but had to be admitted to Dharmais. She is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. She proudly showed off her new looks for us.

Lastly we met Yohanna who is 3.5 years old from Medan. She just had blood transfusion for her Leukemia and was doing fine. Happily, she posed for us with her father.
