    We have visited Wayan Sukarya 2 times, on 17 and 20 June.
    The mother from Sukarya is in bad condition, but not wants to see a doctor. His brother is divorced and now also lives there. Unbelievable that Wayan with his handicapped body still climbs the coconut trees.
    We brought sembako, blanket and pillows and matras and vitamines and paracetamol and gave 200.000 rp.
