BALI HEARTS LOVINA

To make the lives of the people we look after in Bali as comfortable as possible and provide funds to
send children to school who otherwise would not get a education

Since 2000 I have been going to Bali at first helping people in need with various mostly medical problems. After the Bali Bombings in 2002 I teamed up with some other Australians helping wherever we could. In 2005 in Singaraja I went to the Inaugeral meeting held by a HIV Aids Foundation from Denpasar and have been involved with them ever since. I was asked If I could help some children from Aids Affected families by way of finding sponsors to put them through school. This I did and since 2005 children from Aids affected families are still being sponsored. If I get asked for help I go to the family house and assess before I commit to finding a sponsor

SO BALI HEARTS BEGAN ITS JOURNEY

I have now got 26 sponsored children 4 of which are being sponsored for the first time this year and one who’s sponsor from last year was unable to sponsor again this year but fortunately I was able to get another for her.
From June 2015 to june 2016 was a very busy year for me as I have now joined forces with Global Village Foundation a registered charity in Lovina Bali so Bali Hearts will now be part of Global Village Foundation which for me means they can take over looking after my sponsored children when ( as youth is not on my side) in a few years time I will not be able to ride a motor bike up the mountain roads or climb up and down hills etc as I do now but of course I will still be around for the next 5 years at least.
Over the last 18 months I have been out with GVF delivering wheelchairs to disabled children/Adults fundraising to continue our disabled housing programme Up to now we have helped 6 families with building projects
Attended a Conference in UK on Ichtyhosis a incurable skin condition as we have children/adults we look after with Ichtyhosis
Five children from this family have and are sponsored  Martini 18 working in a Beauty Salon Kerti is Married Gede is in Junior High School and Angelina and Juliani in Elementary school.  When I first assessed them they had no kitchen no bathroom/toilet or water We built a bathroom with a donation from Tom a friend of one of our sponsors  we paid the water bill so water was restored the parents built a makeshift kitchen themselves.
The bikes where bought for  them from a fundraiser by a sponsor in Australia
