Ronaldo – A Young Man on the Ball in Bali

4 Year-old Bali Soccer Enthusiast Benefits from Unique International Program - www.carryforkids.org .


(7/31/2006)

Ms. Ros Trembath, an employee of Garuda Indonesia in Adelaide, Australia, first encountered Ronaldo in 2002 when he was only three months old. Left at a Bali orphanage during the 2002 World Cup, the staff decided to give the infant the name of the Brazilian soccer star – Ronaldo.

A regular visitor to Bali, Ros always arrives on the island fully loaded with clothing, food and toys for distribution to some of the many children cared for in Bali's orphanage. It was during one of these trips to Bali 4 years ago that Ros first met the infant Ronaldo.

When the staff of Airport Travel in Adelaide recently gave Ros a soccer ball for "her kids" in Bali, she immediately remembered Bali's mini-Ronaldo and made sure that the ball was specially set aside for him.

As the accompanying picture on balidiscovery.com shows, Ronaldo is obviously delighted with his new soccer ball from which he is now reportedly inseparable.

www.carryforkids.org

Founded in the late 1980's by two travel industry workers, Brenton Whittaker and Shirley Cribb, www.carryforkids.org strives to improve the lives of children in developing countries by providing a vital link between travelers and children's centers overseas. By providing information and facilitation services for people prepared to carry much-needed donations for needy children on their holidays, the organization puts potential donators, couriers and needy institutions in active contact with each other.

In the process, institutions across the Asia-Pacific region receive critical assistance in their efforts to clothe, feed and humor the children in their charge.

And, judging for the smile on Ronaldo’s face, participating in the carryforkids.org is not without its rewards.
