This project is specifically for managing and empowering Odapus (people live with lupus (Erythrmatosus Systemic Lupus). Project was launched in June 2014 collaborated with Syamsi Dhuha Foundation. Activity of the BIONSI create herbarium-based product and teach to the Odapus community, so that they can develop creativity independently in their homes and can produce products have commercial value. There are over 5 million people with lupus in the world, 300,000 of them are in Indonesia, and about 90% of lupus patients are productive women between 15-45 years. One of major challenges of lupus patients in Indonesia, they have financial difficulties due to the relatively high cost of medication. This is because 1/5 or 60,000 people with lupus in Indonesia come from underprivileged society.
