Baliís Miracle Worker
John Fawcett Foundation Performs its One-Millionth-Eye Screening

The John Fawcett Foundation (JFF) recently checked the eyes of its one-millionth patient in its ongoing village eye-screening program that has successfully restored sight to 45,000 poor people in Indonesia.

All services provided by JFF for the poor are free-of-charge and funded through the generous support of local and international donors.

JFF has been working with the poor in Bali for 25 years, offering eye screening and free cataract surgery. The first mobile eye clinic was flown from Perth to Bali by the Australian Air Force in 1991 when it began travelling throughout Bali bringing cataract surgery to remote villages and distant townships.

Today, a dedicated team continues to offer villagers eyesight-screening program. Those blinded with cataracts receive sight-restoring operations, eye infections are treated with medicinal eye drops, and those needing corrective lenses are provided glasses.

Routine visits are made to primary schools where children and their teachers are given eye examinations, providing eyeglasses for those who need them. More serious eye problems are also discovered during these visits and treated by the JFF team of medical professionals.

Over the years JFF’s work has spread beyond Bali with the mobile eye clinic paying visits to Lombok, Sumbawa, Kalimantan and East Java.

Impressed with high standard of medical assistance and surgery provided by JFF, the Government of Indonesia has formed a strong working relationship with JFF. As a result, the Indonesian Air Force recently mobilized an airlift of the mobile eye clinic using a C130 Hercules Aircraft to the remote island of Alor in eastern Flores where 99 people received sight-restoring operations. In February 2016, the Clinic will be “flying” once again, this time travelling to Yogyakarta with the Indonesian Air Force.

High School Musings Kill
Bali Police Consider Charging Two High School Students Under Terrorism Law for Making a Prank Threat against SMAN I in Denpasar

The Bali Police continue to intensively interview two students from a Denpasar senior high school who fashioned and delivered a written threat in the name of the Outlaw Islamic Nation (ISIS) on the morning of Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

Despite the growing realization that the two students were involved in a prank, police are still considering filing criminal charges against them.

Beritabali.com, quotes Bali Police Spokesperson, Herry Witanto, who said on Thursday, January 28, 2016: “Police from the criminal division have been intensively questioning the two students from SMAN 1 (High School #1) in connection with the written sheet containing the threat. We received the report from a teacher at 10:00 am on Wednesday, with police from the East Denpasar precinct, intelligence officers and criminal detectives immediately responding to the scene.”

A sheet of white paper was found at the school that said (in Indonesian and Arabic): "We are ISIS and are at the High School reader to violently disrupt your programs. We are not afraid to die. Allahu Akbar (God is Great)!”

Police say the two students have admitted committing the “prank” with the Bali Police Command intending to act decisively in investigating and handling the case. The Bali police are working to determine what motives were behind the act.

According to Herry, the idea to write the threat came from a 16-year-old girl Putu Ayu, while a 16-year-old male student identified as Putu CM, physically posted the threat on a wall. The appearance of the threat caused widespread concern and some panic among the students and faculty of the school.

Police, who are holding the two for continued questioning, report the student are in good health and being well cared for. Meanwhile, police have requested professional psychological evaluations of the two.

Herry said the fact that the two admit they were involved in a prank, does not diminish the fact that a case exists for charging the students under Indonesia’s rigorous anti-terrorism law.


The Road to Success
Head of Bali Tourism Office Calls for New Toll Road from Kuta to Soka, West Bali

The head of the Bali Tourism Service (Kadiparda), A.A. Gede Yuniartha Purta, has called for strategic steps to be taken to overcome traffic congestion in Bali via the construction of a new toll road from Kuta to Pantai Soka in West Bali.

Yuniartha told the State News Agency Antara that one of the most serious complaints frequently made by foreign tourist to Bali regards the congested traffic conditions they encounter on the Island.

Better roads are needed to reduce traffic delays as Bali has no definite plans to introduce an integrated and easy-to-access mass transit system. The lack of a mass transit system means that the public and tourists rely on private vehicles to journey around Bali.

Bali’s top tourism official said that with the construction of a modern toll road connecting Kuta and Soka, tourists would enjoy easier access to a number of key areas.

Yuniartha said that Bali must make a concerted appeal to travel agencies to promote visits to tourism objects and attractions spread across all regions of the Island.

“I am convinced that every regency has its unique selling points, defining the different characteristics will allow the development of tourism villages in each region,” said Yuniartha.

Presently, Bali has 47 official tourism villages spread among all the regencies and metropolitan areas of Bali that are all undergoing continuing development in order to attract tourism.

In closing, Yuniartha said that Indonesia is targeting 12 million foreign visitors in 2016.


How Now Sea Cow?
Bali Safari & Marine Park Animal Care Team Rush to Komodo to Assist an Abandoned Dugong Calf

A “flying squad” consisting of a marine mammal veterinarian and animal care staff from Bali Safari & Marine Park (BSMP) and the Batang Dolphin Center recently responded to an urgent call for assistance from the Indonesian Government. The team flew at just one-day's notice to a seaside resort within the Komodo National Park to provide emergency supportive care and rehabilitation to a dugong calf found stranded a few days earlier.

The dugong – also known in Indonesia as a duyung or sea cow, is a medium-sized marine mammal. Capable of living up to 75 years - these gentle, docile and shy animals spend their lives in the ocean’s shallows surviving exclusively on a diet of sea grass. In time’s past, the dugong was hunted for its prized flesh, hide and body oils. Today, it is internationally classified as a species vulnerable to extinction, protected under national laws and international treaties.

Responding to a request for assistance from the Indonesian Conservation Agency (BKSDA), the “flying squad” comprised of veterinarians from BSMP – Dr. Nimal Fernando and Dr. Kadek Kesuma; BSMP supervisor Nyoman Suartawn; and Sutejo of the Batang Dolphin Center arrived at Kanawa Island Resort where a group of vacationing marine biologists from the U.S.A. had spent the past three days hand feeding and nurturing a male dugong estimated to be only one-month-old.

The Indonesian ’flying squad’ arrived to find the animal with several lacerations caused by encounters with sharp coral and suffering from a lack of mother’s milk. It was presumed to be an orphaned calf, but the details of the mother and whether she had actually died is not known. Given that, statistically, the chances of survival for orphaned dugong calves is small, the team of dedicated professionals wasted no time and literally “plunged” into their work, spending up to 8 hours a day in the sea, under a makeshift shelter administering a schedule of bottle-feedings using a special formula hand-carried from Bali Safari & Marine Park.

Cautiously optimistic, the team of caregivers reports that their patient is now mixing a diet of formula milk with sea grass. Monitoring the animal’s input and output, the team was further encouraged by indications that the dugong’s alimentary tract was functioning normally.

In consultation with representatives of the KSDA, the Komodo National Park, the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and supporting members of the surrounding community, a decision was made for members of the animal rescue "flying squad" to stay on site to supervise the sea mammal’s condition and provide ongoing training in its care and feeding to local community members.

Special care was also taken to ensure that the animal is hand fed once every two hours during daylight hours, and the community was instructed to erect a sea pen to protect the dugong during the night. Also important was the introduction of measures to distance the animal from potentially harmful contact with curious tourist visiting the Komodo National Park.

It is hoped the love, affection and professional animal care provided by the BSMP, the Batang Dolphin Center teams and local community members will allow the baby dugong to survive to adulthood and, thus hopefully, live a long life in the ocean. Short-term rehabilitation under captive care will only be considered if it is demined to be essential to the animal’s long-term survival, but only with the intention of releasing the animal back into the wild once weaned off milk formula.

Watch this space for updates on the joint efforts to save the baby dugong by the BSMP, BKSDA, WWF, Komodo National Park and the members of Komodo’s local community.


King, Now Fallen
Malaysian Arrested at Denpasar Hotel with Narcotics

Police in Bali have arrested a Malaysian national for possession of a quantity of marijuana and methamphetamines.

Tee Kok King, also known as Ayung, also known as Polo, was arrested at the Hotel Amaris on Jalan Teuku Umur in downtown Denpasar a short time after he landed at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport off Malaysian Air MH 0853 from Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, January 23, 2016.

At the time of his arrest, Ayung (48) was in the company of a female companion, Liem Hong Mei (48).

Although an x-ray examination of the Malaysian’s luggage indicated an unusual object, Ayung managed to pass through the airport undeterred. A short time later, however, police from the Bali police headquarters were waiting for the man at his hotel. When police asked the man to open his shoulder bag they discovered packets disguised as honey and coffee containing more than 10 grams of methamphetamines. Police also found a packet containing just less than one gram of marijuana.

A number of items identified as police drug paraphernalia were also found by police.

When urine tests were performed on the man and woman, the man tested positive as a user of narcotics while the women’s test was negative.

A spokesman for the Bali Police, Sri Harmiti, said on Monday, January 25, 2016, confirmed that the Malaysian was arrested on the evening of January 23, 2016 at 8:30 pm at the Amaris Hotel on Jalan Teuku Umar.

Ayung lists his profession as the manager of an online gambling website.

Ensuring Mr. Ed Gets Fed
Australian Teenager Assists Elderly Dokar Driver and His Horse After Reading of Their Plight on Balidiscovery.com

Inspired by Bali Update’s coverage of an elderly horse carriage driver (dokar) and his malnourished horse Buy My Horse, He’s Hungry, an Australian teenager living in Bali was spurred into action.

Samara Welbourne felt empathy for the 80-year-old dokar driver, I Nengah Purna, whose services in downtown Denpasar are now in scant demand, displaced by more modern forms of transportation. As a result, Nengah went many days without collecting any fares, rendering him often unable to feed either himself of his horse.

At wit’s end, the old man tearfully implored someone to please buy his horse that was day-by-day increasingly becoming a “bag of bones.”

Resolved to make a difference and do something to alleviate the old man’s suffering, Samara who, despite her tender age, is the published author of a children’s craft book on “How to Make Fairy Houses” decided to raise funds for Nengah and his horse. Cooperating with Elizabeth Travers of the Glass House Restaurant in Sanur, who was helped by friend Jayden Ibrahim, Samara elicited support in hosting a successful “Fairy House Class” that raised Rp. 3.6 million.

Born to an Australian family that cares, Samara’s Mother Cherrell Picton works with Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) – an Australian Government-funded program in an assignment to empower disabled people living in Bali.

Half of the monies raised by Samara were given to the Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA). After several day’s of searching, that included Sam traveling down narrow gangs, seeking directions from local banjar officials, walking across rough terrain and finally entering an overgrown path set in a banana grove that lead to the tiny inner-city hovek where Nengah’s horse was found peacefully grazing. In the company of BAWA officials, Samara had managed to eventually tracked down Nengah at his Spartan quarters in downtown Denpasar where she handed over the remaining Rp. 1.8 million.

The initial encounter with Nengah and his horse was, in the words of the Australian teenager, “an experience I will never forget.”

In recent days, the old man’s health had prevented him from working, but Sam was moved that Nengah still found the physical strength and resolve to lovingly care for his equine companion. As the sun set, Sam helped Nengah lead his horse back to his pen that was surrounded by vegetable fields and banana trees, a scene not out of place in one of Samara’s much sought-after enchanted fairy houses.

Receiving the Rp. 1.8 million, Nengah was moved to tears in the knowledge that,for at least the coming days, his horse would be well nourished. Sam commented: “I think this is one of the best things I have ever done. To meet a person and to know that I have been able to make a real difference to his life and the life of his horse is something pretty special. It’s something I never expected when I first came to Bali, that my fairy houses could be used to make such a difference. I will never forget Nengah and his horse and I hope that I can get some of my horse loving friends in Australia to help the remaining 7 dokar drivers in Denpasar so their horses are looked after and they don’t have to struggle so much.”

BAWA has set up a fund to help Nengah, his horse and the Denpasar community of 8 dokar drivers and their horses still eking out an existence in downtown Denpasar.

Protestors Warn of Social Conflict Ahead
Mass Demonstration Staged at Governorís Office to Oppose Benoa Bay Reclamation

A meeting held on Friday, January 29, 2016, at the office of Bali’s Governor by the Commission to Evaluate the Environmental Impact (AMDAL) of the controversial Benoa Bay reclamation project by PT Tirta Wahana Bali International (PT TWBI) and PT Dinamika Atriya Raya was marked by mass demonstrations against the project staged by the Bali People’s Forum Against the Reclamation of Benoa Bay.

As reported by Beritabali.com, thousand of protestors from all walks of Balinese society, including students, community groups, young artists, musicians, academics and individuals concerned with the natural environment staged massive cultural parades and made impassioned speeches opposed to the reclamation project.

Many protestors claimed that the National AMDAL Commission and the Ministry for the Environment and Forestry were trying to accelerate the approval process that will turn a former protected mangrove forest in Benoa Bay into a major hotel and tourism development.

The coordinator of the protests, Wayan Gendo Suardana, told the press that protests against Benoa Bay'a Reclamation has entered its third year as local villages groups, banjars, community leaders and youth organizations joinined the widespread opposition to the project.

Gendo continued: “Our stance is clear. We reject the reclamation of Benoa Bay. The public aspiration is that the AMDAL Committee rejects the project recommendation of PT TWBI and asks the national AMDAL committee to declare the reclamation project non-viable. The villages surrounding the Benoa have all rejected the project at democratic forums held in each community.”

The high-profile environmental activist warned that if the government fails to reject the project and approves the reclamation of Benoa Bay large scale community conflict would be the result.

The mass demonstrations held outside the Governor’s office were orderly and peaceful with a large police presence on hand to help keep the peace.

Bali Lifeguards Warn Tourists to be on Guard for Large Waves and Strong Winds in January-February 2016

The Badung Bali Life Guard Association (Balawista-Badung) is advising caution to swimmers and water sports enthusiasts on Kuta Beach and Seminyak Beach over the coming days and weeks.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the chairman of the Badung Balawista, Ketut Ipel said on Tuesday, “We recommend that tourists exercise caution and be alert to large waves.”

Ipel said information from the National Body for Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics (BMKG) states that the height of the rainy season in Bali will be in January-February 2016 accompanied by strong winds and large waves. He said those venturing into the ocean should stay close to shore and obey signs specifying areas unsafe for swimming.

The 168 member of the Badung Balawista are stationed at 24 posts on Kuta and Seminyak Beach. Each post has a complement of approximately 7 lifeguards.

In 2015 there were 104 cases recorded of swimmers being swept away by strong currents with 6 of that number dying from drowning. Most of the drowning fatalities were domestic tourists who drowned while swimming or fishing on the shoreline when large waves washed into the shore.


A Bridge Over a Troubled Roadway
Temporary Truss Bridge Being Installed at Tukad Ayu to Overcome Huge Traffic Backlog Between Denpasar and Gilimanuk.

The framework for an emergency Bailey Truss Bridge were delivered on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 to the location of the collapsed bridge over the Tukad Aya River on the main road between Denpasar and Gilimanuk.

First used by the British forces during WW II, a Bailey bridge is lightweight and easily assembled means to provide a river-crossing useable by foot and vehicle traffic.

The new bridge will be overlaid onto the existing bridge structure, raising the level of the bridge by 60 centimeters in the process.

The Bailey Truss Bridge will provide temporary relief to the massive traffic jams and detours currently resulting from the old bridge’s collapse, while engineers have time to develop and build a more permanent solution.

Meanwhile, hundreds of trucks carrying food stuff and perishable products are backed up at Cekik near Gilimanuk because of the bridge collapse at Tukad Aya. Authorities are concerned that the blockage of basic food supplies from Java will soon be felt by consumers in Denpasar and the rest of Bali in the form of higher prices at local markets.

Breeding Discontent
Kintamani Dog Breeders Want Government to Review of Blanket Ban on Export of Dogs

Dog breeders in the regency of Bangli raising Bali’s unique Kintamani strain of canine are complaining that they are unable to sell their animals outside of the province due to the prohibition on the export of dogs and other animals from Bali during the ongoing rabies epidemic on the Island.

While quality pedigree Kintamani dogs once fetched prices of Between Rp. 1.5 – Rp. 2.0 million each, prices have plummeted to Rp. 500,000 – Rp. 1.0 million during the current embargo on the export of dogs outside of Bali.

Dog breeders are asking the Government to review the current prohibition on Kintamani dog exports that has been in place for the past two years.

Bali at 3,361 Meters
3,000 Tourists Climb Baliís Mount Agung Each Year

The Hamlet of Sorga in the village of Sebudi, Karangasem is the last community passed through on the way to the Pasar Agung Temple on the slopes of Bali’s sacred Mount Agung. Located 1,000 meters above sea level, the people of Sorga experience a hard daily slog in meeting their daily needs. Some work quarrying stone, carving andesitic rock, hauling sand, working in the building trades and acting as guide-porters for those wishing to climb Bali’s tallest and most famous Volcano.

Treks up Mount Agung depart form Pasar Agung on their way to the mountain’s peak at 3,361 meters. The length of the trek covers 5.5 kilometers, requiring 3-4 hours to ascend to the top of the steep climb.

Those who chose to climb to the peak via the Besakih Temple have a longer trek of 8.5 kilometers.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, a senior porter-guide, Wayan Darta, who has worked as a porter-guide for 17 years and speaks both English and German, said a strong demand exists among both domestic and foreign tourists to climb the mountain via Pasar Agung. Darta estimates that 3,000 tourists climb Mount Agung in 2015 via Pasar Agung, 1,700 of who were foreign visitors.

Darta said that most foreign tourists wishing to climb Mount Agung visit the location during the months of June – August. Many of the foreign visitors hail from Europe, but with increasingly more visitors coming from Asia.

Because of the large number of porters waiting for a chance to work the mountain and the time needed to physically recover from the strenuous climb, porters work no more than once or twice each week.

Each porter is paid Rp. 450,000 for a single climb up the mountain leading no more than four tourists.

In order to allow guest to enjoy a sunrise on the “morning of the world” at the peak of Mount Agung, expeditions usually depart Pasar Agung at 2:00 a m.

While most tourists return to the base-camp at Pasar Agung by trekking downhill for 4-5 hours, some chose to sleep in tents on the mount at camps pitched at a height of 2,400 meters above sea level.
