Departure for Indonesia in a Couple of Days

Posted: 2nd September 2019 by dan in Uncategorized

It seems like only yesterday that it was months away for this Project in Bandung, Indonesia. But here we are, getting ready with last minute preparations and last minute nervousness. We recently got approval for the wheelchairs to be shipped with Cathay Airlines Cargo. Thank you very much Cathay Pacific! We greatly appreciate your assistance.

On the one hand a great relief and help, on the other hand a bit of uncertainty and anxiety. Will the chairs arrive when we do? Will Indonesian customs be cooperative and timely in their release of the chairs?  Will we have to pay duty/taxes on the used chairs?

Very early September 5, Mia Hansen, Peter Hughes and Dan Altan are flying from LAX to Hong Kong with American Airlines, then from Hong Kong to Jakarta with Cathay Pacific. If all goes well, we should be in Jakarta, Indonesia around 1:30 pm on September 6. Let’s hope the unrest in Hong Kong doesn’t effect our travel.

Donald with Jakarta Swift in Indonesia has been working very hard to organize and coordinate things for our arrival and for a successful Project/clinic in Bandung. We’re all very excited and looking forward to partnering with Donald in this, our 4th, worldwide Project.
