Bali Caring Community (BCC), Nusa Penida August 8th 2014

A visit to one village at Nusa Penida, met 40 families, gave them food, clothes and baby needs. All those stuffs were from the donation to BCC.

This village looks like a forgotten village where people living under poverty. Most of them are old and children. Young people and adult moved to other cities or countries for work and never coming back there eversince.
This villages is 1.5 – 2 hours far from the main port of Nusa Penida.

One of our volunteer there said that they should wait for rain to get fresh water, makes people get shower normally every 2-3 days.No market around, so they have their own field to plant singkong (this place is a dry hill, I didn’t see any rice field, so I assume they eat singkong as their main meal) and veggies. Even if they have market, money will be their problem.
It reminded me about those orphanages I have visited. They living in such a “rich place”. Having lots food and clothes, sleeping in a nice room and always get donation from everywhere. Even made shock when we brought the kids DVD, and they said “We watched this already. Don’t really like it. That one is a bad movie. Do you have another DVD?” But here, with 5 (maybe a bit more) Indomie, 2.5 kg rice, 1L cooking oil and secondhand t-shirt, pants and/or sarung could make them have glassy eyes.
