WHO WE ARE
The John Fawcett Foundation (JFF) is a humanitarian not-for-profit organisation that assists needy citizens of Indonesia, particularly in the field of sight restoration and blindness prevention. It offers its assistance to people in the lower socio-economic group free of charge and without religious, political or ethnic consideration.
John Fawcett began his humanitarian projects in Bali in 1989. These included the Cleft Lip and Palate Program and the Mobile Eye Clinic for Cataract Surgery. JFF was established as an Australian incorporated association in 2000, bringing these programs together in one organisation. In the same year, the Indonesian counterpart, Yayasan Kemanusiaan Indonesia (YKI) was established, later registered as The John Fawcett Foundation Indonesia (Yayasan John Fawcett Indonesia).
JFF is registered in Australia, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and USA.
