Police escorts, mangroves and malaria in South Sulawesi
On our first day, we boarded a boat and headed across the water to a small island for a snorkeling session and to try some of the local foods – the fried banana with hot sambal chili sauce was favoured by all of us and didn’t last long.
Day two was exciting! We met our guide, Sacha, who had been posted in Indonesia, working with Red Cross for many years and we jumped on a bus and headed off to one of the schools in Indonesia. The Red Cross is supporting children with disabilities. We spent the morning speaking to the children and teachers and playing some educational games about water and sanitation.
