Yayasan Solemen Indonesia
Yayasan Solemen Indonesia (Solemen), an Indonesian non-profit foundation, provides direct support and funding for the disadvantaged and 'diffabled' (differently abled) in Bali. Established in October 2010, Solemen is one of Bali's most trusted and visible charities. The Governor of Bali is Solemen's 'Pelindung' (Guardian/Patron) and the charity is endorsed by the Bali Government Tourism Office and the Bali Hotels Association.
Solemen's Outreach Programs benefit the poor, the disadvantaged, the 'diffabled', the homeless and the marginalised in Bali. The charity's goal is to alleviate the misery of extreme poverty by bringing hope and sustainable solutions to those who remain hidden from public view and hence are separated from easy access to medical treatment. Solemen actively reaches people who fall through the cracks and are not helped by the existing network of charitable organisations and government programs.
Despite very often operating on a shoestring budget, Solemen's fast acting Outreach Team of volunteer doctors, nurses, therapists, nutritionists and social workers shoulder an ever-growing caseload of 'Solebuddies' (people under their care). Solemen provide effective and targeted help where it will have the most impact. They are constantly looking for donations, not just in monetary terms, but also food, clothing, mobility/disability aids, sponsors and more. Please review their wish list on their website to view what is currently needed. They here at Solemen hope that you can help them as well as enjoying the beautiful island that is Bali.
