(UNHCR) symbolically handedover donations of a humananatomy mannequin toElementary School 02 in MegaMendung and medicalequipment to Lungs Hospital inCisarua, as a token of appreciation to the servicesprovided by the facilities torefugees and asylum seekersregistered by UNHCR.Refugee children often havelimited access to educationeverywhere in the world.UNHCR is grateful to see thatsome elementary schools inCisarua area are willing toaccept refugee children andtreat them equally as any localchildren. According to Mr. Cecep, one of the teachers in the ElementarySchool 02, the childrennormally face from the start thechallenges posed by having todo their studies in BahasaIndonesia.. “However, childrenhave the potential to quicklylearn different languages andafter a while it is easier for them to adapt. They makefriends with the local childrenas well, making it easier for them to deal with the pressurecreated by cultural differences.”Cecep added.The donations are just a smallpart of the total donation of 39medical equipments, whichinclude wheelchairs, weighingscale and minor surgery sets,given to six hospitals and four health centres (puskesmas) inthe area and in Jakarta.Meanwhile the human anatomymannequin was provided inseven elementary schools inJakarta and Bogor.
