Welcome to Yayasan Lestari Sayang Anak website!


Our Foundation wants to rescue babies and toddlers who cannot be taken care of by their desperate parents in the Jakarta area. We do so by running an orphanage where babies are not only cared of, but also cared for. This distinguishes us 
from many other orphanages in Jakarta area. Please take a look around and find out all about how we achieve this important goal.


From The Netherlands to Jakarta by bicycle? They must be Dutch :-)


Everything in between is about two of our friends, Diego and Marlies. They are on their way from Netherlands to Jakarta by bicycle!!! Now the are already in Hanoi, Vietnam. For more information about their journey, and how you can support them see:

Please support Marlies and Diego...
With your contribution they will support 3 charities.

One of them is LSA.

Donation from Postcodeloterij - Special thanks to Ruud Gullit and Rogier Schultz

July, 2016

The visit of Ruud Gullit and Rogier Schultz has brought us more than a great afternoon! These men with their hearts on the right place have kept in touch with me after their visit. Not long ago I received a phone call from Ruud, telling me he introduced Lestari Sayang Anak to the Postcodeloterij in Holland. A few emails later I got the fantastic news from Ruud that the Loterij will donate to us 3000 Euro!!!!!!! I am so happy, it couldn't have come at a better time! Thank you Postcode loterij! Thank you Ruud, you are a true friend!!! Thank you all for helping me to make a difference in a few children's lives!

Medical funds account

Early January 2014 we opened a medical funds. An account where people can donate money for medical purposes only. One month later two of our children were in hospital for different reasons. Harry needed a small operation, and baby Joshua had to stay two nights because of high fever and a fever fit.So the funds proved to be very useful, which is why I ask for your support.
