Ari Murti
With immediate effect aids infected mothers can now be attended at Puskesmas in Nusa Dua.

Mimi Inkiriwang
The Orphanage Parties on 19.12.2009 were a big success. A special thanks to Michael Burchett for his support in organizing the events.

Jose Calle
Due to his intensive travelling he apologized for not having been able to attend many Rotary meetings in the past. That is also the reason for his stepping down as chairman of the Community Relation service within the Bali Hotel Association (BHA). One of the main charity activities of the BHA is the patronage of individual hotels over orphanages. His work there will be continued by Virginie Sandstron, GM of Harris Hotel, Kuta.

Nunie Kniep
Referring to the orphanage scheme Nunie proposed to add an element of home industries and agriculture aiming at making the orphanages more self supportive.

Bipan Kapur
Following the presentation of Daniel Elber regarding the Muntigunung “Future for Children“project, the Westin Hotel is now in contact with the project organizers buying their produce.

Edward Naus
Attention was drawn to a case where funds in an orphanage near Ubud had been misappropriated by the orphanage director. This being not a single case, close monitoring of the use of donations in orphanages is mandatory.

Werner Gulba
His initial reservations towards the orphanage parties taking place in star rated hotels were turned into the opposite by seeing the joy of so many children.

Risto Poskiparta
On behalf of Rotarian Oivind Heidalen visiting RCBND some time earlier a banner from RC Prosgrunn (Norway) was submitted.

Michael Burchett
Once more special thanks to Mimi Inkiriwang and Nunie Kneip for their work on the organisation of the orphanage party was extended.
