In Love with Bali

Australian Adele Baker Makes a Lasting Difference to Her Adopted Island.

Nearly 30 years ago, Australian Adele Baker made her first visit to Bali. Since then, she lost count of how many times she's returned to the island.

Adele and Bali have managed to somehow "click." Travel warnings, travel bans and alluring holiday offers to other exotic holiday destinations couldn't budge Adele from regular visits to her favorite "home away from home" – Bali.

Thus, when the Bali Bombers struck on October 12, 2002, Adele refused to stand still and allow evil men who "loved to hate and hate to love" have the final word. Determined to make a difference, Adele cleared the decks and redoubled her long standing commitment to the people of Bali. In the two years that have passed she has tirelessly sought donations, organized concerts and other fund-raising events for a long list of relief projects in Bali.

To date, she's raised well over AUS$ 100,000 which have aided many projects, including the following:

• A food and livestock program for 2,000 Balinese families living in 5 villages. A project organized through the Bali Hati Foundation, Adele's work recently won her a letter of congratulations from Australia's Prime Minister, John Howard.

• Provided stationery packages comprised of books, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, and pencil sharpeners for 1,000 local school children.

• Organized the supply of 12 computers for three Bali schools.

• Funded a well and water pump for a local village, eliminating a 10 kilometer walk for a bucket of water.

• Provided donations to the East Bali Poverty Project.

• Funded the purchase of 75 school desks for a school in Datah.

• Set up a scholarship program for destitute students. Funds provided by Sydney residents now provide scholarships for 50 children, with more scholarships promised in the future.

• Funded a new toilet facility for a school in Pejeng Kawan - 4 new white-tiled toilets complete with wash basins.

• Coordinated a donation from Sydney resident, John Angel, in memory of his daughter, Janet, who died of cancer at age 34, to construct a fishing cage and a refrigeration unit to assist local fisherman.

Is Adele finished with her Bali projects? Not by a long shot.

A recent meeting with this lady, who seems to have endless resources of personal energy, evoked stories of a "new Ubud Project" and her "MFK-Bali" program – an acronym for "money for kids in Bali" - a project intended to provide much needed school uniforms to local children.

Quick to humbly point out that "all she does is network with others to help Bali," Adele sings the praises of local hoteliers, Rotarians, local charitable foundations, airline officials and private citizens who are "always there" to support her many trips to Bali and non-stop program of fund-raising.
