SurfAid International

Unverified non-profit organisation

SurfAid views its mission to improve health and wellbeing as an invaluable investment in the future of the Mentawai and Nias people. Key stakeholders are communities and individuals, regional government and partner non-governmental organisations. Their programs represent an integrated approach to improving health and wellbeing and they seek lasting improvement through cost-effective, high-impact interventions.

SurfAid, in partnership with communities and government, works to prevent disease, suffering and death through educational programs and health promotion that aim to change poor health behaviours and reduce the risk from natural disasters.

SurfAid’s goal is to empower communities to help themselves and build local capacity so their improved health resilience is sustainable. SurfAid advocates health and wellbeing for all and create collaborative relationships with other stakeholder groups wherever they can so as to further sustained change in behaviour and development.
