Update from our January excursion

Greetings from Bumbu Bali and Rumah Bali.We hope this note finds you well after a hopefully great start into the new year. We are happy to share with you some images from our latest trip to East Java in late January where we where able to help a total of 263 Sulfur Porters. This time 14 of our team members from the restaurants took time off to assist with the fair distribution of lots of little goodies. This time each porter received a mask, a special type of working shoe, a packet of cloth as part of your donations, and one days wage. Despite the fact that all your kind donations bring a little sunshine into the brutal life’s of these porters, this trips continue to break our hearts, for knowing that only a few hours from a very comfortable life style in Bali, people virtually kill themselves to make a living. Especially when you consider that the sulfur they carry eventually makes our comfortable life style even better and more enjoyable. Most sulfur is used in the cosmetic and food manufacturing industry.

It makes us incredible proud that with your generous help we where able to proving funding for 17 children of of these porters to go to school for one year. This time we visit the school directly and handed over funds in return for proper documentations. This will guarantee that each and every Rupiah donated will reach the people in need. US$100 will provide a brighter future for one child. Perhaps you like to sponsor one child? As part of our next visit in April we will support 20 more children and at the same time assist the school with audio visual equipment's and desperately needed computers.

Searching for a creative design

Please do take a minute and look at the photos on page two. It would be absolute incredible if someone out there would be able to design and develop a devise “Yoke” which potentially could make this incredible burden of 60-100 kg a little more bearable for the human body. This could be a special project for engineering students. There is no point of suggesting modern mining methods as this would mean the end of a regular income for most porters.

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Regardless how big or small your contribution, it will bring a little glimpse of hope for a better life. You can make a great difference in a harsh life.
