Desak Needs Help to Walk Properly
Thirteen year old Desak was born with a very disabling bone condition which makes walking very difficult. She walks with an awkward gait and tires very easily. The family is very poor and Desak was sleeping on a wooden bed base only. We have since provided a mattress for her and her sister.
She is currently undergoing assessment at Sanglah Hospital where she has been diagnosed as Cerebral Palsy. To reduce the spasticity in her legs she requires Botox treatment. She needs 3 bottles initially at a total cost IDR 9,000,000. She needs top up every 3 months.
Fundraising to cover for her Botox treatment has been done through the Gracie Kelly’s Quiz Night every Tuesday and Thursday. To date, we managed to raise IDR 4 million of a total 9 million needed. Let’s help her to walk by participating in the Quiz Night every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm. You can also speak to our staff to donate or put it in the donation box attached to the Charity Board in the main lobby. Thank you for your generosity to help!

Menjangan Dynasty Resort features a 5-star PADI Dive Centre
Keeping in line with the concept of bringing its guests close to nature (including the magnificent underwater nature of Menjangan Island), the now open Menjangan Dynasty Resort features a sophisticated, 5-star PADI dive and watersport centre.
Managed by Bali Hai Diving Adventures, the dive centre is named Pasir Putih Dive and Watersport Centre, homage to the area’s famous white sand beach with pristine and gentle waters. The dive centre offers year-round professionally-guided scuba diving and snorkelling excursions for beginners, families and experienced divers to the splendid dive sites surrounding Menjangan Island. Also available are non-motorised watersports such as kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.
Guests who are not certified scuba divers can sign up for a one-off Discover Scuba Dive, or a full PADI certification course. The course is maintained in a maximum student to instructor ratio of 4:1 to insure safety and quality training for all PADI course students. All of the PADI courses include a PADI manual, a diver’s log book, and top notch instruction within a stunning environment.
Bali Hai Diving Adventures has been operating in Bali for over 20 years with a 100% safety record.
Bali experienced a surge in visitor arrivals with a total of 2.27 million international arrivals in the first half of 2016 surpassing the number of the same period in 2015. This also marks the first time Bali has welcomed more than two million visitors in the first half of a year.
If this growth rate is sustained until the end of 2016, Bali can expect to end the year with a record 4.75 million international visitors. Its previous all-time-high of just over four million visitors was set last year.
Arrivals from Australia and mainland China are driving this growth, mostly because of a rising number of flights connecting Bali with China and Australia, including new low-cost flights by Tigerair and multiple Chinese charter services. (TravelDailyAsia)
