I recently returned from a trip over to Bali, where I photographed orphans at Bali Kids. I contacted them before I left, hoping they would allow me to come in, photograph the kids, and help them out with promotional images. I asked at the right time. They were in need of some images for a calendar, and needed them urgently. I took my lappie, worked on the images and gave them straight back to Bali Kids. I learnt a lot from photographing the orphans. How the orphanage works, how sponsors help so much, how the kids live, how they came about to be in Bali Kids care, how the organisation helps sponsored children study in Australia... and realised how very lucky I am to live in a country with so much available. To live in a country where I can bring up my daughter, family, quality care, schooling and medical services so close.
If you are heading over to Bali (or some other Asian countries) please Carry for Kids. We all head over with an empty suitcase, so why not fill it with something useful, that is needed so much. Medical supplies, clothes, school supplies, toys, nappies, books - whatever. You can get more information at www.carryforkids.org .
Here are some of my pics that I took over the two days of photography...[gallery]
