The right to a healthy life

A Surfing video by Mpora - 729 views



Many of the world’s best surf destinations are remote and people in remote areas are often forgotten, as delivering services there is costly, time-consuming and requires serious efforts. SurfAid passionately believes that no matter where you live, you have a right to access quality basic services.

Filmmakers Michael Lawrence and David Kruta recently went to the Mentawai Islands and Nias, off Sumatra, Indonesia, to cover SurfAid’s field work in mother and child health, malaria, water and sanitation, and emergency preparedness.
