Dear Sponsor, Warm greetings from East Indonesia. I am Georry Nefiantuty, known as Tuty. I have been the country director of Compassion East Indonesia for 16 years and three months. I am originally not from Manado, East Indonesia but Bandung, West Java (in the western part of Indonesia). I started working with Compassion in Bandung in 2001 and four years later I was appointed to start the new office in East Indonesia.open_in_new Read full letter
