Caring for the Survivors

Bali's Hotel Association Provides Training to the Local Widows and Daughters of the Bali Bombing Tragedy.

(10/31/2003) Casa Grande - the association of Bali's star-rated hotels have contributed Rp. 35 million (approximately US$ 4,100) from its "Spirit of Hope" fund to the Sri Khandi Foundation's educational program. The Foundation supports and empowers Balinese women through various educational programs.

Funds donated by the hotels will be used by the Foundation to train and seek employment for the widows and daughters of the Bali Bombing, training them to work as beauty-therapist trainers so that, in time, they can share their skills with other deserving women.

The Bali Spirit of Hope Fund was launched by Casa Grande in the aftermath of the October 12, 2002, bombing tragedy to assist Indonesian victims and upgrade hospital facilities in Denpasar and Kuta.

Seen in the picture is the first group of women scheduled to commence training with the Sri Kandhi Foundation this December.
