With its extensive natural resources, you would think West Papua would be a land of riches. Yet we remain the poorest and least developed part of all Indonesia. There is a lack of basic healthcare, and literacy levels are lower than the national average

Meanwhile, some of the richest and most diverse forests on the planet are being stripped of life.

Why?

It is so sad!! And it is the same everywhere. There are so many countries which get exploited by the once who have the knowledge, but no heart!
Thanks Cal
