Seeing a doctor is easy for urban citizens, but it is very difficult for the folks living in the village, especially those who live in isolated islands. Nabila is a girl from Natuna island, Riau who has difficulty accessing health facilities because her residence is far from the city center. Nabila is a hydrocephalus sufferer who needs regular treatment and examination.
Hydrocephalus is a build-up of fluid in the brain cavity or the so-called ventricle which causes the ventricles in it to enlarge and suppress the organ. This fluid will continue to grow so that the ventricles in the brain enlarge and suppress the structure and brain tissue around it. If not treated immediately, this pressure can damage the tissue and weaken brain function. In addition, this 12-year-old girl also has epilepsy which is a disorder of the central nervous system due to abnormal patterns of electrical activity in the brain. This disease causes complaints of seizures, sensations and unusual behavior, to loss of consciousness.
Nabila was referred to a hospital in Jakarta for her treatment. To be able to go to Jakarta, she needed to cross the island using a wooden boat and then take an airplane to Jakarta. The cost of transportation to the hospital is very expensive for Nabila's family whose income depend on their father's uncertain jobs. His father's income is only around 1 million rupiah per month and that's not even certain. Within a year, Nabila had to control the hospital several times which cost tens of millions of rupiah.
Let's help Nabila to get treatment!
