Abangan, Ubud - Komang

We have some rather sad news from the Indonesia set up. One of one sponsored kids father passed away 3 weeks ago. He was a good friend and a very kind man. The kid name is Komang and he is only 10 year old. Komang is a very talented Balinese boy who has won many competitions in traditional Balinese dances. He was last performed for us on New Year eve for our Singapore visitors at Cangku.

 

Another piece of sad news was Akku’s older sister being hospitalized and waiting to be operated. Five hospitals have rejected her and deemed her condition as critical. But thanks God, we managed to find one hospital who agreed and confidence to operate on her. Money has already been sent to the family. Lets pray for her speedy recovery.

 

Akku’s mother has flown back to Makassar to take care of her daughter. 14 year old Akku is taking care of his younger sister Ayu in Bali alone. I have already notified the head of village to give support and care till mother returns.
