(8/9/2004)

On Saturday, July 31, 2004, well respected and much loved local restaurateur Freddy Subiyanto passed away after a long illness.

The owner and operator of the popular Kura Kura Restaurant in Seminyak, Freddy was perhaps equally well known for his tireless devotion to the Community. Active in the Rotary Club of Denpasar, Freddy spearheaded a drive, started in 1997, to build a much needed modern blood bank at Bali's Sanglah General Hospital. Approaching the Rotary Foundation, based at the organization's headquarters in Evaston, Illinois (USA), a link was eventually established with Rotary Clubs in and around Traverse City in Northwest Michigan who joined forces to raise the funds to build the modern facility.

During a 14-day visit to Michigan in May 1998 with members of a Rotary Group Study Exchange, Freddy exchanged ideas with his hosts on how to build Bali's desperately needed blood bank. A few months later, in October Freddy was back to give 12 formal presentations in Michigan and Canada trying to raise the US$ 70,000 needed to build the blood bank. Working under a time pressure imposed by the rapid devaluation of the Rupiah occurring at that time, Freddy and his fellow Rotarians had to raise the necessary funds quickly or risk watching the cost of the project soar out of reach.

Rotarians in Traverse City responded to Freddy's appeal donating US$ 17,500 supplemented by an additional US$ 10,000 from the Rotary Charities of Traverse City. The District Governor of Rotary in Northwest Michigan lent his support coming up with an additional US$ 20,500 in just two weeks. And, fortunately, while Freddy was busy fund raising in Michigan, his fellow Rotarians back in Bali had been busy doing some fund raising of their own obtaining an additional US$ 36.000 from Rotary Clubs in East Hiroshima, Japan.

Today, a modern and clean blood bank has replaced its dingy ill-equipped predecessor – a lasting tribute to the generosity of Rotarians around the world and the determination of Freddy Subiyanto to improve the chances of life for people requiring blood transfusions in Bali.

Finished and operating smoothly, the Bali Blood Bank played a key role in the rescue efforts following the tragic Bali bombing of October 2002.

Freddy Subiyanto was 61 years old. He is survived by his wife, Christina, a son Anton and his wife, and a grandchild.

Freddy Subiyanto – Bali will miss the difference he made to our daily lives.
