From there, you can walk or ride a motorbike to Made Gunung’s house, about 400 meters away. Made Gunung’s house was built by an American tourist; Mr. Daniel.

    Difficult to say this: now the parents lost again a child, Mariani passed away.
    From their 5 children now only Komang Dani is left, the girl that is in SMP class 3.
    We have great respect how the parents all those years tried to take good care for their children in their poor and difficult circumstances.

  3. Admin says:

    @Marja de Jong. We’re very sorry to hear that Luh has passed away.

  4. Marja de Jong says:

    Very sorry for this family: Luh, the eldest daughter who was married and pregnant, passed away last month, only 21 years old.
    Mariani, the child with the small head, is sick and now only weighs 9 kilo.
    The parents still take good care as much as possible for their children.

    Komang Dani is now in SMP, first grade. We have a sponsor for her, she gets now 250.000 rp per month. For the handicapped children we try to bring them every month a box of Proten.
    In august 2015 the children were 2 weeks in hospital Amlapura. The goverment helped.
    Salam, Marja and Tirta.
