“I joined Yayasan Jan­tung In­done­sia be­cause I wanted to help it con­tinue with im­por­tant pro­grammes, such as help­ing ba­bies born with heart de­fects,” says Shahla Ra­hardjo. An MBA grad­u­ate who has worked for in­sur­ance com­pany AIG, man­age­ment con­sul­tant arm of ac­count­ing firm Ernst & Young and her fam­ily’s busi­ness, Shahla counts Esti Nur­jadin as a child­hood friend,

“We’re aim­ing to cre­ate more aware­ness of heart dis­ease and to send pos­i­tive mes­sages to the com­mu­nity about healthy life­styles - why it’s im­por­tant and how to do it,” says Shahla. “We have set up a spe­cial divi­sion for ed­u­ca­tion in re­mote ar­eas. Th­ese peo­ple are the key to creat­ing aware­ness among all In­done­sians, at all lev­els of so­ci­ety.

“My role as the Trea­surer for the foun­da­tion is to work closely with Vice Trea­surer Sumiati (Gani) to make all pro­grammes go smoothly. We have to make sure that all the do­na­tions and funds en­trusted to us go di­rectly to those in need.”
