Rumah Cemara

“Humans cannot create a miracle but humans can experience miracles through football.  Drug users and HIV positive people in Indonesia are excluded and outcasts, but through football we have become one and included into the community. Football has brought everyone together in Bandung, it is an amazing site to see.” Ginan Koesmayadi – Co-Founder Rumah Cemara
