Nurhamid Karnaatmaja

For the last decade, Nurhamid Karnaatmaja, 60, has provided care for around 2,000 schizophrenia sufferers who were victims of violence, homeless or abused. Although Nurhamid\'s intentions were noble, many people objected to his approach. However, he never gave up, and continued to welcome and gather schizophrenia sufferers at Istana Komunitas Sehat Jiwa (Mental Health Community Palace).

Nurhamid had been living a comfortable life as an elementary school teacher since 1979. His monthly salary of around Rp 4 million was decent. However, his concern and care for people with schizophrenia prompted him decide to retire early seven years ago.
