Through their Bali and Aceh (North Sumatra) clinic, over 5,000 babies have been welcomed into the word via the Yayasan’s birthing services.

As a top 10 finalist in CNN Heroes “Ibu” Robin Lim will receive US$50,000 and invitation to the attend in person CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute to be telecast on December 11, 2011. The winner – to be announced live on CNN – will win an additional US$250,000 that - if  "Ibu" Robin wins will use to for her important work on behalf of the woman and children of Indonesia.
