Finally Here!

This has been a long time coming… The Access Life Team has been waiting for a shipment of wheelchairs for over a year.  More importantly, there are many people with disabilities here in Bali that have been waiting for the wheelchairs.

Lisa, Ash, Daniel, and Pak David have been working hard signing papers, sending letters, seeking signatures, jumping through hoops, and cutting through endless red tape.  It has been a frustrating process, but we are happy to tell you that the wheelchairs were delivered to our storage building last week!

The team gathered at scheduled dropoff time of 9am to help unload 550 wheelchairs.  9am came and went…  We got word that the customs officials had ‘important matters’ to handle at the airport, so we waited some more.  Then we were told they would come  around 1pm… finally at about 3pm, five big trucks arrived full of the long awaited cargo.

Although it was really hard work, the time went by quick with lots of smiles and joking.  After two trips down to the harbor to unload the container, all the wheelchairs were in the storage building, the doors were sealed by customs officials for a mandatory two day waiting period, and we all headed home at around 9pm.

It was a long, tiring, great day!

The smile says it all!!

On a recent family holiday to Bali I had the great pleasure of catching up with some friends on the Access Life Bali team. Having previously attended on a short term project for mobility, it was wonderful to catch up with past acquaintances such as sisters Mira and Liman. Wheel chair bound in January 2010, but now walking with light supervision only.

It was also challenging and rewarding to come across ‘accidental clients’, such as an 80 year old stroke victim on the north shore, somewhere hear Gerogkak. Essentially bed ridden for 10 years and relying on his 2 sons to carry him out for toileting, we found he has actually had enough recovery of muscle tone for basic mobility.

A wheelchair could be assembled and fitted on the spot by the ALB team, and the broad smile said it all! This one hour of our time has made an enormous impact on the quality of life for our accidental client.

Please remember your support for the ALB team.

Nearly all the men in this village are farmers.

Last week, we ran a 3.5 day Train the Trainer 1 program for the ALB staffers. Next week, they will meet with the head of the village to present the program to him and have him set up a committee. Once the committee is trained and on board, they choose CHE volunteers from the village who will then get trained. The CHE volunteers then take their lessons to their neighbours ( pass on the teaching). The whole process takes about 12 months investment of time to change the wholistic health of this community for the better.

This is from a drama about aid vs development-all sessions started with a drama or story

Small group work is a key feature of this training

Groups presented back their findings after small group work

Every morning groups took turns to review the previous days’ lessons

Signage

In the long process of getting our foundation set up, we needed to make a signboard with logo, address and ‘motto’.  And this morning the signage went up – we are now so official! Our vision is “to give hope and care to people with disabilities and to communities without access to clean water”.

Getting There

On April 28, 2011, in General News, by jon

Mountains, valleys, rivers, and ravines…  These physical features naturally cause certain places to become isolated and difficult to reach.  Those same places also tend to suffer from inadequate medical facilities, poor roads, and insufficient clean water supply.  Access Life Bali makes it our practice to seek out those hard to reach places and offer assistance to those in need.

Most people that support and give towards the water and mobility projects here in Bali rarely get to see one of the most important aspects of our work: getting there.  You may have seen pictures of happy people drinking clean water or a person with disabilities finally able to get out and enjoy the world because of a wheelchair, but it is also important to understand the challenges and obstacles of ‘getting there’.

On the road to the Tigawasa water project, the ‘road’ has deteriorated into a string of potholes and boulders that tear up shocks, springs, and tie rods on the ALB truck.  Ronald and Nyoman could tell stories of walking up a long dirt path while carrying 50 pound bags of cement on their backs, all because there was no road suitable for a truck or motorbike. Arie often has to manage driving on very small and winding roads with big dump trucks competing for space.  This is a recent picture of Jon’s motorbike on the side of the road.  He was heading to Negara to check on the Pangkung Liplip project, and something in the road punctured his tire.  After pushing his bike for about a kilometer, he found this friendly guy named Pak Wayan that owned a tire repair shop.  After about 40 minutes for a patch and a cupper, he was back on his way.

We’re happy to share the stories of lives changed every week through access to water and mobility, but remember that behind every story of a life changed is another story… what it took to get there.

Access Life Bali Clean Water and Mobility Aid projects would be non-existent if it were not for the support and generosity of many people.

Today we are happy to announce that we’ve made it easier to partner with us and support Access Life Bali to provide hope and care to people with disabilities and to communities without access to clean water.

We’ve launched an online donations form where you can give a one-off gift or make a longer term commitment with regular contributions.

People often ask us how much impact they can make with their donation. To give you a guide, we’ve created a small list of suggested donation amounts which shows you how far your money can go. Click on the image below for suggestions:

Thank you for considering financially supporting our work here. Your kindness and compassion can be crucial to changing someone’s life.

Cheers,
The Access Life Bali Team

Mountain Spring

Well, the Tiga Wasa project has been running for almost 6 months now! After lots of humps in the road and a little discouragement we have finally sourced a spring which is flowing at 30,000 ltr/hr! Crystal clean water! Dangin Pura village is working hard and this week building a retaining wall to enclose and protect the spring. This is our most technical and challenging project yet involving three pumps over 1.1km up an elevation of 200m. Thanks to some help from the Aussie Government and some big businesses in Oz, this project is well supported. Thanks!

 

In House Training

On Monday 24th Jan, Clair Young, a friend of Access Life Bali, came in to give us all some training about non verbal communication skills for special needs children. We learnt a bit about cerebral palsy, Down’s Syndrome and autism and how to reach out and connect with kids that have these disabilities. The most important things is to have patience ,to invest time into these kids and their families and to TEACH their families how to reach out and care for the special needs kids. In most cases, the families have not been given an accurate diagnosis ( so many families think their children were disabled by a dose of polio when in fact they might have contracted meningitis which was not treated). Many parents just need help in how to communicate with their kids, to understand they are not mentally retarded just because they are autistic, and to help them to become independent to the best of their ability. It was an eye opening session for all of us!
