Bali House of Life

By Mark Wiens 1 Comment

While walking along the road trying not to get hit by speeding trucks, thumbs out to attempt a ride in vain, we came across Life House Children’s Home, Bali, Indonesia.

Along with Dwight Turner from In Search of Sanuk, we returned the next day to spend an incredible day interacting and hanging out with the kids.

As many know, Bali, and particularly the town of Kuta is dominated by party-happy tourists.  For this purpose there are numerous beggars and hawkers on the streets, 24 hours a day.  The kids from Life House are orphans from the streets of Kuta.  The kids all had rough beginnings but are extremely bright and on their way to being successful.  Their happiness and cheerfulness are enough to make the most unfriendly start laughing and playing.

As Dwight says, “we were on the receiving side of the giving.”
