Monday, 25 August 2014 by

Klinik Bidan Yuni, now called Klinik Bunga Arsari  is a small and modest community health center located  in Dusun Sungapan, Argodadi, Sedayu District, Bantul, Yogyakarta. Operated by midwife Tri Wahyuni or Bidan  Yuni, located in a modest village church, it is the only facility serving mothers and children.

For this edition, we would like to present to Wadah Newsletter readers the following YAD activities: the first, relating to the cultural preservation of the Autobiographical Chronicle of Prince Diponegoro 1785-1855 (Babad Diponegoro); the second, the 2014 Kalpataru Award conferred on YAD Chairperson Hashim Djojohadikusumo in recognition of his work to support and preserve the environment, and last, a social activity in cooperation with WADAH Foundation, the inauguration of Klinik Bunga Arsari (health support facility for village communities).

“We have the right  to clear the forest for planting, but we have  decided to conserve  hundreds of big and  rare trees growing in that forest,”  – Hashim, said

The word Kalpataru or Kalpawreksa is Sanskrit for Tree of Life. It is depicted in the carved reliefs of Mendut and Prambanan temples in Central Java. A symbol of balance and harmonious environment comprising forest, land, water, air and humans, the government of Indonesia adopted it in its awards program for an individual or a group who devote time and energy to the preservation of the environment.

The Faculty of Economics of the University of Indonesia  (FEUI) Library was established in 1951 as a support facility for study, teaching and research at the school of economics in the old University of Indonesia (UI) campus in Salemba, Central Jakarta. After more than four decades of being housed in Salemba, the FEUI Library moved in 1993 to a five-storey building in its new Depok campus on the outskirts of South Jakarta. Seven years after, with the burgeoning scope and function of the library, it evolved into a Resource and Learning Center (RLC) comprising three discrete  units: the FEUI Library, the FEUI Postgraduate Library and the Economics & Business Data Center of FEUI.
