(3/23/2014)

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that The Bali Police’s Tourism Assistance Center (TAC) in Kuta is helping to establish a travelers’ aid center for foreign visitors encountering difficulties while in Bali.

Called the Foreigner Community Club (FCC), police lauded the new organization saying it was supported by expatriates living in Bali, some of who have donated personal funds to ensure the program’s success.

The FCC will be located in Bali behind the TAC office already established in Kuta.

A senior Balinese police official, Comr. R. Umar Faroq, said: 

“[The] FCC is a group of expatriates in Bali. We warmly welcome the initiative because it is for good reasons.”

Through providing assistance to island visitors, by helping tourists who have lost passports or bags or encounter other difficulties, Faroq said the FCC represented an innovative program of cooperation between the public and the police.

The FCC, now in the process of being built, will have a rooms to temporarily house a tourist in need of assistance for 24-hours. The office will offer WiFi and provide networking with immigration, banking authorities, the Indonesian legal system and others to help sort out problems encountered by foreign tourists.

Speaking to the role of expatriate volunteers who will support the FCC, Faroq said they would work closely with local hospitals and other institutions of community support.

Faroq said the FCC will be launched in April with plans, if successful in Kuta, to launch similar centers in other tourist areas of the Island.
