Charitas Flores Netherlands
Charitas Flores Netherlands (CFN) is a charitable non-profit foundation with a recognised "ANBI Status" in the Netherlands. CFN focuses on helping people in need and on raising the standard of living in the rural areas of Flores, Indonesia.
In these areas, 60 per cent of the village communities have no access to clean drinking water and are deprived of proper hygienic facilities. This leads to infectious diseases, comorbidity, food shortage, extreme poverty, and living conditions far below dignified humanitarian standards. The Charitas Flores - Netherlands Foundation provides the legal and organisational basis for the 'EVIDENCE' project. EVIDENCE stands for 'Educational Vigour against Infectious Diseases Employing Novel Combinations of Expertise'.
