Two underprivileged and severely disadvantaged families in Bali have a better chance at a peaceful life now following a two-night charity befit organized by the Indonesian Sole Men Foundation and Hard Rock Hotel Bali.

The two nights of music on July 27 – 28, 2013, at the Hard Rock Hotel, saw all proceeds donated to the urgent care and rescue of the two Denpasar families caring for seven severely disabled children who, prior to Sole Men’s intervention, spent their days lying helpless on floor of a simple hovel.
 
Performances by Navicula, German Dmitriev, Goldvoice, Superman is Dead, Nosstress and Garden Grove were fundamental in raising US$30,300 that will now be used to provide new housing, medical therapies for the children and medical support.
 
Quoted by Bali Daily, Robert Epstone of Sole Men said: “The families’ ongoing needs will now be supported, as well as the formal education which we had already arranged for the unaffected able-bodied children. They will be continuing the three-times per week therapy sessions, which we started five weeks ago.” 
 
The family will soon move from their present shack to two, wheel-chair friendly modular recycled plastic houses that are maintenance-free, non toxic, earthquake-proof and extremely long-lasting.
 
The recycled house were donated by Global Nev Futureshapes (NFS) Pty.
 
Overjoyed at the success of the fund-raising project, Epston said that once the families are in their new home, they will be taught how to grow fruit and vegetables, and cultivate chilies and bamboo. Plans are afoot to teach the family how to make handicrafts that can provide an income stream for the family.
 
The seven children suffer from a degenerative disease that causes limbs to painfully constrict.
 
Sole Men continues it active program of fundraising on behalf of Balinese children and the alleviation of poverty.
 
Planning is underway for another event, to be held in early October 2013.
