Bali News: John Fawcett: Making  A Real  Difference

(1/22/2005)

Using the criteria of finding Australians who made the world a differente place through the lives they lived, the Melbourne newspaper The Age has published a list of 50 names from the arts, sciences, sports, and politics of Australians who – for better or worse – have left their indelible mark on the world as we know it.

John Fawcett

Included in the list, and definitely one of the Australians who made the world a kinder, gentler place is John Fawcett, the international project director of The John Fawcett Foundation.

Born in Perth in 1932, John was a ceramics teacher who came to Bali in 1985 to recover from a debilitating back injury. Moved by the kindness and concern of his Balinese neighbors, he sought to reciprocate the Balinese for their help and began establishing clinics to treat children suffering from diseases of the eye, palate and chest.

Over the years, any plans of a quite retirement have evaportaed as John Fawcett's humanitartian projects have grown to the point where more than 20,000 patients are now treated every year by his foundation.

Much loved and respected in his adopted home of Bali, John works tirelessly in raising funds that allow his Foundation to save lives and restore sight through the visits of his mobile cataract surgery.

Clearly, the tens of thousands of Balinese who lovingly call this giant Australian "Dr. John" know John Fawcett to be a man who has made a fundamental difference in the life of the Balinese people.

Goodonya, Dr. John.
