When I was in Bali last, I photographed the kids at Bali Kids. I was taken to the hospital, schools and home where they live. An amazing experience, to see such happy children - children from devastating backgrounds.
Bali Kids ask tourists going to Bali to take over supplies, clothing, donations and various other things to help run the orphanage and hospital. Tourists can visit at specified times also, and meet the kids.
The Bali Ball, now in it's third year, also raises money for Bali Kids. Last year the event raised a whopping USD $136,000, enabling Bali Kids to build their new medical and dental centre. This year, The Bali Ball, held on August 16th, raised money for not only Bali Kids, but also Yayasan Samaritania (charity that helps the children living on the rubbish tip in Sanur) and Bumi Sehat (two community health centres in Bali and Aceh).
Think about who you might be able to help, next time you head overseas.
