Seeking to Alleviate the Suffering of Bali’s Least Fortunate
Solemen Foundation to Open a New Recovery Center in Bali
The Solemen Foundation, one of Bali’s most visible and popular charities caring for the disadvantaged in Bali, will soon be opening a second recovery center on the ground floor of the new Solemen Center in Kuta. The Solemen Recovery Center will be a care facility with a comfortable and homey environment providing accommodation, support, and resources to their patients - affectionately named “SoleBuddies” - and their families before, during, and after hospitalization or medical treatments performed in Denpasar.
Many of the “SoleBuddies” live far from the hospitals or treatment centers located in Denpasar. When extended hospital stays are required due to complicated or re-occurring treatments, the Center provides free of charge accommodation for supporting family members and the patient.
The Solemen Recovery Center provides modest, clean and a safe place to stay at no cost. Accommodation is provided for up to 10 families in fully furnished bedrooms complemented with bathrooms facilities, a functioning kitchen, and a comfortable common room.
Solemen’s present recovery center, called the SoleHouse, is located close to Bali's main hospital - the Sanglah General Hospital. Filled to capacity, additional space is needed for the large number of Solebuddies undergoing treatment in Bali’s capital. The new Recovery Center provides a larger space with much needed additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
The lease and renovation of the new Recovery Center was sponsored by Solemen’s partners, the Bali Dynasty Resort and CamCan. At this time, Solemen is in the process of seeking additional funds to furnish bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, and bathrooms in order to complete the facility.
Solemen’s present caseload is over 2000 SoleBuddies, a number that is increasing every month. Many are children and adults are from the most remote and poorest areas of Bali. Those assisted are typically suffering from acute and untreated medical problems and severe malnourishment reflecting their substandard housing condition.
Solemen seeks to alleviate the misery of extreme poverty by bringing hope and accessible solutions to individual cases that often remain hidden from public view and without easy access to medical treatment.
Solemen is dependent mainly on individual donors and businesses in Bali,
