SuaraJogja.id – The marketplace message notification rang loudly in the living room of one of the health clinics located in Ngloro Village, Kapanewon Saptopsari, Gunungkidul Regency , DIY. He hastily grasped the iPhone 6 plus which was placed on a reception desk where he worked.

There was no important message that he needed to reply to immediately. This 54-year-old woman continued by looking at a number of promo items offered on her mobile online store application.

That morning, the atmosphere of the clinic named Asih Sasama was not visited by many. The clinic is a health facility built by the non-profit organization Humanity First, a wing of the Ahmadiyya organization . Even in the midwife’s room where this woman works, not a single patient has come.

Yuyun Yunarsih, a midwife from Kuningan, West Java who has been anchored to Gunungkidul from Jakarta since 2020, felt a big difference when she settled in Bumi Handayani. As a supervisor at a private hospital in Jakarta, his working hours are not as relaxed as in Gunungkidul. Even to check promo items in online stores like today is very difficult.

Indeed, previously this mother of two children wanted to spend her old age in a quieter place, but it can still provide many benefits to the community. That’s what then led him to the decision to serve at Humanity First for the sake of humanity and health.

“Yes, I used to talk with friends in Jakarta if one day I wanted to move to a quieter place, not pressured by work like at the previous hospital. Finally I was met with Asih Sasama Clinic and met one of the missionaries in Jogja. He asked for help so that there are midwives here to provide services to residents,” said Yuyun, met by SuaraJogja.id , Tuesday (18/2/2022).

Yuyun’s family support is also positive if she decides to serve Ahmadiyah. Yuyun’s husband only advised, when his resolve is made up, don’t wait for retirement for his religion. Yuyun also decided to resign from her job as a supervisor, when the financial needs at that time were very fulfilled, even more.

Living in a new environment, Yuyun admits that she has never been discriminated against as a member of the Ahmadiyya Community, either during her stay in Kapanewon Paliyan or working at Asih Sasama Clinic. Even after two years of socializing with local residents, Yuyun has never questioned her beliefs.

“Yes, since the beginning of living in Paliyan, I did introduce myself to the RT and RW there. Including when I was at the clinic, yes, because I came with the intention to help the community, so there was no fear either,” he said.
