Ketut Perti, hardship life of a family
This woman named Ketut Perti, 65 years old.
Stay at Ringdikit village north Bali.
She is in the hospital right now because of dysentery and anemia.
What makes us have to reaching our hand is the family financial background.
They are, Ketut with no husband live with her only son and his wife and one year old baby in a small old one room house. Half earthen wall covered with fabric and half wall are bamboo made. Roof are leaken everywhere. Because they have only one room, Ketut decided to stay in their balcony walled by wood and some fabrics. They live in so simple life.
In normal condition, Ketut working to make Balinese offerings to sell to the neighbor, the son is a farm worker, work for others when they needed. While the wife is taking care their baby.
But now, since ketut was at hospital, the son has to be at hospital also to take care of his mother. No one working. Eventhough ketut treatment is covered by government (in a very standard health care), they have to pay a little. But, it was big for them the amount Rp 500.000.
They borrow the money from everywhere possible. But still there is problem, the son has to stay at hospital and feed himself and his wife at home and his baby.
We decided to help in a little, gradually.
Now they receive amount Rp 20.000 everyday as long the mother in the hospital, to keep the son able to take care of his mother. We distribute rice to their home for the wife and baby.
Later, their house and and their life we have to note.
Anyone, everyone, let share a beat for them.

Studying table for talented student
One kid i know out of Munduk, he is in 5th class of elementary school.
Named Gede Irvan, father name Ketut Sutarka, they are in Padang Bulia village near Singaraja town.
I visited them last week while i was doing something at Singaraja.
Gede is a very kind children, spend only a little time for playing.
Most of his time is helping parents to take care his younger sister and studying.
The interesting thing is, Gede is always at the first rank in his class since the 1st year at school.
The school also sent him to some local competition sometimes.
Now, he is preparing for a mathematics competition in sub regency level.
He must study hard.
i talked to him and heard a little story.
He actually love to learn harder compared to his classmates. But the family’s financial state is not supporting well.
Here is a photo of their kitchen. Bed room are also simple.
Gede is much hope i can support him by a table for studying. Because usually he studies on his bed or outside.
He have a small table, but it must be hard to study on it.
I propose a learning table with a chair for him since their kitchenware are still ok to use.
and here it is, he was so happy with his new table and chair. for $39 AUD.
