Although he is 77, Nyoman Kila is still able to work in his profession as a tree feller.  If he gets a request to cut down trees, he can make about 100,000 Rupiah per day. Unfortunately, this work is not available every day but is irregular and depends on the season.

Nyoman Kila lives with his wife Ni Wayan Menten, along with his son I Wayan Tama and his daughter-in-law Ni Luh Arnyani, in separate houses but they share the one yard.

Fortunately, they have both been provided assistance through a government housing project.

Nyoman’s Wife:  Ni Wayan Menten works making porosan for sale.  “I can make 10,000 Rupiah per day” she said.

Nyoman’s son, I Wayan Tama, harvests coconuts by climbing up the trees.

The assistance you give this family can be in the form of providing their basic daily needs (rice, sugar, oil, clothing, etc.)  or cash to buy their daily necessities.
