Get To Know Pondok Kasih Foundation

Yayasan Pondok Kasih was founded by Dr. Hana Amalia Vandayani Ananda D.min, better known as “Mama Hana”. In 1991 Mama Hana received a call from God to provide services for the poor. The beginning of the Pondok Kasih Foundation provided a Wanula House (nursing home) for elderly women who were neglected by their families and a Children’s House for orphaned children.

When the crisis began to hit in mid-1996. Yayasan Pondok Kasih provided assistance that greatly helped the sustainability of the community at that time such as helping to finance underprivileged children, free health assistance for people in need and providing training for community empowerment.
