Indonesia Orphanage

Some friends and I will be visiting the Jodie O'Shea Orphanage in Denspar, Indonesia in early October.  We will be packing items from their Wish List (see below) to take to them.  We will also go shopping with the staff during our visit to purchase the perishables that they greatly need.  The funds provided through this website will go directly towards the purchase of all of the items we purchase for them.  If you have any of the items on the list and would like to donate them, please   message me and I will organize receiving/shipping them, or I can get you in touch with the Orphanage directly, to make a large contribution towards their bigger wishes.  

We have 68 children ranging in ages from 2 to 18 years. Of these children, some are from Sumba, a very poor and arid island to the east of Bali and some are from Bali or other Indonesian islands.

Since moving to their new home these children have undergone an amazing transformation. Prior to coming to the orphanage all of them had grown up malnourished in poverty stricken areas, often from one parent families, surviving on a meagre hand to mouth existence.

Today, however, in their new home our children are embracing a life they have never known - a healthy diet, an education, being nurtured and cared for and having the freedom to simply be children.

It must be stressed, however, that all of the children's families love and care about them immensely but have had to make the difficult decision to send their children elsewhere so as to provide them with a better life and ultimately a better future.

We are funded only by donations from generous visitors and patrons. We accept no support from the Government.
Our everyday costs are for food, health, education, wages and building maintenance.
