Yakkum Emergency Unit (YEU)
Tentang YAKKUM


YEU (YAKKUM Emergency Unit), as a younger sister of a solid CD Bethesda, is a three-year old Indonesian emergency NGO officially established in 2001. Her birth was based on pressing concerns within YAKKUM (Yayasan Kristen untuk Kesehatan Umum – Christian Foundation for Public Health) regarding the effectiveness of CD Bethesda’s responses to emergencies while still retaining its focus on community development work.

History of YEU

YAKKUM (Yayasan Kristen untuk Kesehatan Umum – Christian Foundation for Public Health) Emergency Unit (YEU) was established in 2001. It took birth in the wake of a wide-ranging external evaluation by international stakeholders of the workings of the extensive development programs carried out by CD Bethesda (Community Development of Bethesda Hospital). It was based on pressing concerns within YAKKUM Foundation regarding the effectiveness of CD Bethesda’s responses to emergencies while still retaining its cutting edge as a development organization in Indonesia. The primary question was, in the main, how responses to emergencies could be implemented with equal speed and efficiency- the essence of emergency responses.

In the wake of the demise of the Soeharto regime, Indonesia rapidly slid into a phase of multiple crises requiring massive humanitarian interventions on the part of those already engaged in human and social development processes. This is not to suggest that what occurred was new or unknown. Some things simply surfaced because they had been suppressed so long that when they did show up, it came out more like an eruption. There was also the Asian financial crisis of 1997, which took its toll and left entire communities in a state of deprivation. Moreover, the termination of dictatorship and its replacement by a regime of democracy gave rise to instability. The lack of preparedness for the sea changes in the political, social and economic circumstances of the country also resulted in uneasiness within the army and the elites who feared a potential decline in their ability to influence and shape events to suit their own narrow interests. The manifold conflicts that exploded caught many people by surprise. This is particularly true of the various inter-religious riots, and the riots between different ethnic groups. It surprised observers that people who had for so long lived in harmony and peaceful co-existence could suddenly train guns against each other, and use some of the most brutal and horrific ways to kill and decimate each other.
