In 2004 a 6 year-old orphan, was found extremely ill in one of Bali’s 38 orphanages. Cowering in a small room his body was completely covered in weeping, bleeding sores and scabies. He would take a few steps then fall down. Too weak to even stand.
“Children are the world’s most valuable resource and it’s best hope for the future” John F. Kennedy
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.” Martin Luther King Jr.
Supporters were therefore inspired to establish a centre for such children in crisis. A place which could provide quality medical care and love. Bali Kids opened it’s doors in April 2005.
"It will always be our aim to keep children with their family or extended family if at all possible."
