About Cinta Tanah Air
Cinta Tanah Air is a community (in progress to become an organization) of young people, which come together to help and support the impoverished Indonesian community, especially focusing in the area of health, education, social, and financial needs.
HOW DID WE START?
THE IDEA WAS SPAWNED IN OCTOBER 2010, AS TWO YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENTS, FELICIA AND MELISSA, MOVED BY THE FACT THAT MANY PEOPLE IN INDONESIA WERE ANGUISHED FROM DISEASES AND PASSED AWAY AS THEY COULD NOT GET THE PROPER HEALTH CARE, AS WELL AS THE LACK OF EDUCATION, SUCH AS THE ABUNDANCE OF ILLITERATE PEOPLE IN INDONESIA, AND MANY OTHER THINGS THAT THEY KNOW THEY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
They then started to rumble with ideas. What could they possible do? How could reach out to these underprivileged Indonesians? How should they raise the fund? These fears and doubts, however, did not stop them to take a step further, to put their thoughts into action. Hence, filled with excitement, they found their passion and took a step to be a channel to make a difference in their home country, Indonesia. They started raising fund, while they were studying in Los Angeles, California, and brought those money to Indonesia, to do their first event, a “One Day Free Clinic” in December 2010. All they wanted to do is to make an impact, leaving a legacy in the country that were raised in. And so that’s where the name “Cinta Tanah Air” which means, love for our home land, comes about.
