A CHANCE encounter between members of the Mandurah Circle of Friends, who took many suitcases of goods to Bali for the Mandurah Carolia Charity and the managers of Cheers Karaoke Bar in Legian, resulted in a fundraiser and a strong alliance between both groups.
The Carolia Charity has many programs running in Bali to help the underprivileged and the donation from the Cheers fundraiser will pay for two families to set up micro farms to feed themselves and sell surplus vegetables.
Recently, the Carolia Charity visited a juvenile prison in Bali with Laily, a previous graduate of their program and now a music teacher, to supply motivation and offer encouragement via music and talks to the children incarcerated there.
“Most of there through very sad circumstances in their lives: they don’t want to be bad people, they are lacking mentors in their lives and have lost direction,’’ MCF member and Carolia Charity supporter Jacky Lomas said.
“The Carolia Charity does its best to help them.
“There are many desperate children seeking sponsorship in Bali and for just $350 a year, a sponsor can change a child’s life forever.”
