4th Annual ‘Kartini Day’ Fundraiser for Women's Health in Bali on 19 April 2012


(4/6/2012)

The Rama Sesana Foundation (YRS) is a non-profit organization that operates a Women's Health Center at Bali’s largest traditional market at the Pasar Badung (Denpasar Market). Serving low-income women, with a focus on reproductive health, most of the clients are market vendors and laborers.

YRS provides high quality, easily accessible and friendly services, available on a voluntary donation basis, including cervical cancer screening, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted disease (STDs) & HIV, prenatal care, contraceptives and counseling, as well as outreach health programs and education.

At least once every hour, an Indonesian woman dies of cervical cancer. Easily preventable, cervical cancer can be cured if detected at an early stage via a simple and inexpensive with a Pap test. But, sadly, nearly 70% of Balinese women have never been screened.

YRS is committed to reduce the unnecessary pain, suffering and needless death of cervical cancer. Funds raised by staff and volunteers support the YRS Pap smear program.

To this end, YRS is holding its 4th annual "Kartini Day Fundraiser" on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at a private residence on Jalan Pengembak No. 19 in Sanur, Bali. The event is named in honor of Raden Ayu Kartini who was born on April 21, 1879 and is revered as an Indonesian heroine for her work on behalf liberty and the advancement of women.

Highlights of the day, that will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, include a bake sale and refreshments, bazaar vendors selling a range of enticing merchandise, and professional private Pap smear screening for cervical cancer performed on-site.

Women planning on attending the event are welcome to make a Pap smear examination appointment for April 19th for themselves or a staff member by [Emailing]  or telephoning ++62-(0) 81246526374.

The public is also welcome to merely show up for an examination.

For examinations on April 19th are priced at Rp.300,000 or Rp.200,000 (US$33 – US$22) and includes a complimentary raffle ticket.

The same examination is available at anytime on a “donation basis” at the YRS Center in Pasar Badung.

At an evening Cocktail Party at the same location from 5 to 8 pm there will be drinks and canapés sponsored by Stark Beer, Hatten Wines and Three Monkeys Café.

Raffle winners will also be drawn in the evening, with prizes including merchandise and vouchers donated by Bali businesses. Raffle tickets are available for Rp. 20,000 (US$2.20) with discounts available for multiple coupon purchases.

A silent auction will also be conducted for quality merchandise and luxury hotel stays.

Donations are, of course, always welcome with a contribution of Rp. 750,000 (US$ 83) sufficient to provide life-saving cervical cancer screening for five women conducted at the YRS Center.
