CNN Hero of the Year Robin Lim Receives ‘Hero’s Welcome” at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport


(12/23/2011)

Coinciding with the day set aside for honoring mothers in Indonesia, “Ibu” Robin Lim returned to her adopted home of Bali on December 16, 2011, after her whirlwind tour of the U.S.A. during which she was named CNN Hero of the Year before a worldwide TV audience.

On hand to welcome her home in Bali was a large retinue of friends, colleagues and members of the local community, including a large contingent from the Bali Hotels Association.

Also at the airport was a crowd of some 50 well-wishers comprising people that Ms Lim has helped over her years her Bali Foundation [Yayasan Bumi Sehat] There were tears of joy streaming from the face of Robin as, surprised and overwhelmed, she saw the huge crowd of well-wishers. Waving to all, she said over and over again, “I love you.”

Bali Hotels Association's general managers strongly supported her candidacy by generating more than 20,000 votes from hotel employees and guests, with chairman Jean-Charles Le Coz noting that, “tourism should be a positive influence for the people of Bali, and as tourism stakeholders, we admire what ‘Ibu Robin’ does for the community.”

As Hero of the Year 2011, Robin Lim’s cause received US$250,000 together with US$50,000 when being named among the top 10 CNN Heroes finalists.
