Mindie Schreurs

Founder

She was only 4 years old when she first visited Indonesia and got to taste Indonesias diverse spices and cultures. Her grandparents moved to Indonesia, which is why Mindie and her family visited Indonesia almost every year ever since.

During her Social Work study (specialised in Pedagogical Care) she got to carry out her life changing internship in Lombok and fell in love with the country of her grandma’s origin. Her internship experience has showed her that in Lombok, special care for children with a (mostly physical) disability was not optimal neither accessible for those children of disadvantaged and lower income families.

Mindie moved to Indonesia in 2010 to start a new chapter in her life. Ever since she never stopped striving to grow LombokCare into a sustainable organisation to support more and more children and their families. She loves going beyond the ordinary!

Apip Sutardi

Chairman

Who knew Apip would be running a Foundation. Before his journey at LombokCare began, Apip moved throughout whole Indonesia with his band.

Teaching music at LombokCare was his first experience ever interacting with children with a disability, who have inspired him along the road to create new childrens’ songs, which haven’t quite evolved in Indonesia throughout many years. Apip, a.k.a Om Apip (Uncle Apip), has been recording 2 albums of which sales profit is fully donated to LombokCare.

Apip has been active as a chairman since 2012. His passion for music and other forms of art is now fusing with his management skills in creating an inclusion through arts movement to add up to LombokCare’s missions. Besides that he has a full belief that music and arts are one of the greatest forms of therapy to create progress in the development of LombokCare’s children.

Faridatul Mulyati, S.E

Treasurer

Faridatul Mulyati, also known as ‘ibu Yati’, has been struggling for a long time to find a job that was suitable for her. One year after applying at LombokCare, she finally got a call which left her in mixed feelings of gratitude, happiness, fears and worries. She was invited for a job interview at LombokCare, but she was 8 months pregnant. Who would actually hire a mature pregnant woman?

Her prayers were being heard, getting the job at LombokCare was a big relief because now she could support her, at that time unstable, family’s economy. She started her journey at LombokCare in 2013, just 2 weeks before her expected due date of delivering her second child.

Besides her accounting skills, she’s an open hearted person who’s always being open to hear the extraordinary stories of both parents of the children as well as our staff. Now, ibu Yati is fully dedicated to support others, especially the mothers of these children, who are struggling even more than she did before.

Ary Januar Ismana

IT & Communication

What is a ‘disability’? That’s something that Ary often questioned. The answer he often got was ‘someone abnormal’, though this didn’t seem to be the right answer to him. Eager to find out, Ary was attracted to join LombokCare. After visiting LombokCare for the first time in January 2019, he decided to apply.

Given his wide variety of autodidact IT and digital skills, Ary was hired at LombokCare in June 2019. It didn’t take him a long time to find out that persons with a disability are extraordinary gifted in making the world full of colors. At LombokCare our team is creating opportunities for children with a disability to evolve and follow their dreams just like everyone else in the world does.

Ary loves the fact that LombokCare is focusing on many aspects to support these children. Being highly inspired by this great working environment, he’s excited to put his efforts into reaching and touching more and more people digitally to advocate them to join LombokCare’s movement for inclusion.

Amanda Dwitiya
Pebriani S.IP

Administration

Her interest in social activities led Manda, a Political Science graduate, to the gates of the LombokCare Foundation in February 2017.

She is confident about her administration skills and besides that she has a wide variety of abilities like writing and being an MC on events. She loves providing services to the community and fighting for social and humanitarian issues.

In Manda’s opinion this team always thinks outside the box and is desperate to execute crazy ideas which has made LombokCare a pioneer in many points of view.
She believes there is happiness around every corner, just as there is hope in every small movement.

Manda hopes that LombokCare will be able to reach more areas and help more children in need so that this small foundation on the beautiful island of Lombok can play a big role in realizing an inclusive Indonesia.

Dedek Tri Utama, S.Sos.I

Documentation
& Publications

Dedek did his internship at LombokCare in 2015. After his graduation of Social Work specialized in Communications and Broadcasting, he wasn’t really intending to get a job in the first place. Though the video project that he made during his internship, made a good impression on the LombokCare board and it led them to invite Dedek for a job interview in February 2017.

Dedek loves being able to support children with special needs. In his eyes, LombokCare is like his second home, where he gets the potential to grow and develop his skills and abilities. He was also blessed to find the love of his life at LombokCare, Har, who is a dedicated teacher at our special school SLB Pelangi LombokCare.

Dedek is one of the persons behind all of LombokCare’s videos, aiming to make information more and easily accessible digitally in order to reach more people, even on a national level.

Budiman, S.Sos

Social Worker

Budi’s first experience at LombokCare was when he was doing his internship for his study Social Work at LombokCare in the end of 2016. After finishing his study in 2017 Budi decided to return to his village in Central Lombok to help his parents in farming. Harvesting rice in the middle of the beautiful rice fields near his house, was his daily activity.

It was the devastating earthquakes that stroke Lombok in July 2018 that made Budi get on a new path in life. Just two days after the first quake he received a phone call from Apip, chairman of LombokCare, who was searching for people to join the emergency relief program that was being executed by LombokCare. Distributing nutrition and basic necessity packages to the earthquake affected area’s was Budi’s first task.

Ever since, Budi has been active as our social worker. Budi is truly passionate about his job and does more than is being expected of him, no matter what circumstances. Fixing flat tires while going off-road for home survey’s into rural and remote areas is one of them.

Martina Ramadhani, A.md FT

Rehab. Coordinator & Physical Therapist

In December 2018 she was informed about LombokCare’s physical therapy job vacancy by an ex-colleague of the baby spa where she had worked for 2 years after her Physical Therapy study. Martina couldn’t wait to apply the knowledge and skills that she got from college in daily work and decided to directly apply for this specific job.

When she started as a part time physical therapist at LombokCare in January 2019, she didn’t know much about children with a disability though her eagerness to learn about stimulating the growth and development of these children was great. Thanks to the open-hearted guidance of her rehabilitation colleagues, she managed to eventually become the rehabilitation program coordinator since January 2021.

Martina states that LombokCare has the best working atmosphere you can wish for: great multidisciplinary and professional cooperation, team cohesiveness and a child friendly environment.

M. Rasyid Ridho, S.Pd

Education Coordinator
& Principal

Muhammad Rasyid Ridho, also known as, Ridho, always wanted to be a teacher. When he heard that he could apply for a job at LombokCare, he definitely didn’t hesitate. Little did he knew about children with a disability when he just started his career at LombokCare in September 2015, but this didn’t make him less dedicated to his job.

Besides his teaching skills, Ridho loves communicating with people, especially with parents of the children. For the first 2 years working at LombokCare he was a teacher and social worker.

Since July 2017, Ridho has been working as the school principal of our special school named SLB Pelangi LombokCare. Seeing the happy smiles of children and their parents when they graduate and reach their goals is as he says ‘his biggest reward’ for the work that he delivers.

The LombokCare management team feels like one family to Ridho. Creativity, innovation, artistic and totality are words that in Ridho’s opinion characterize LombokCare.
