Assistance to Desperately ill Children and Young
Many poor Indonesian families are faced with the heart-breaking fact that they cannot afford to save their own child's life. There have been cases where a child in need of simple appendix surgery has died because the parents had no money to pay for the operation. To prevent such tragedies, our Foundation arranges free treatment for children from poor families who need life-saving or life-changing procedures. Dozens of children and young people have benefited from this program, which is
funded by The John Fawcett Foundation.
Our Foundation receives many requests to assist children from poor families who are suffering from medical conditions. Most of those we are able to help are treated in Bali, but some children who come to our attention need more advanced medical attention which is not available in Indonesia. Unfortunately we are not able to assist all these patients, and we have to calculate the child’s long-term prognosis and his/her chances of being able to lead a normal and productive life following treatment.
Donations received for particular patients over and above what is required for their
treatment will be directed to other children in this Program
