Listen to the story of Papua. Province of Indonesia. The land of the Papuans. Snowy high mountains and meandering rivers. In one of the largest rainforests in the world, the bird of paradise shows off her feathers, the queen among the birds. Papua, with its fantastic diversity of peoples, cultures, languages, traditions and stories. So colorful, so unique, so rich. The Papuan, get to know him, and you’ll never forget him again. Friendly and gentle.
But a tragedy looms. The familiar environment of the Papuans is at risk from large-scale logging and mining. Their precious ancestral land is no longer safe for the interests of the multinationals and greedy army officers. Economically, people from outside push the Papuans to the margin. Education and health care are substandard. Resistance and protest against this discrimination is forcibly suppressed. Papua Support Foundation (Hapin) wants the voice of the Papuan people to be heard and stands next to them in their struggle to direct their own future. Since 1972.
