In late 2018, we were able to visit another organisation here in Bali, called the “Matahari Terbit Centre”. Matahari Terbit is Indonesian for “Sunrise”.

The centre is situated next door to the “Sunrise International School” in Kerobokan. The centre doubles as a school for the disabled/handicapped, during the week. Then opens its doors on Saturday mornings, as a place where parents can bring their kids, to receive extra activities, such as arts and crafts, quizzes, games, physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. It’s also a great way for the parents to meet, to have some relax time and chat with others in similar positions. It’s a great little community. There are on average 15 kids in attendance, ranging from 4 – 17 years. Their difficulties a wide ranging, but they all benefit from the same things.

There is a great team of local and international helpers, but they struggle to offer regular support in the hydrotherapy pool. So that’s where we could help. As a result, we have committed to regular hydrotherapy/swimming sessions. I suppose that means we’re hydrotherapists now!

The kids really enjoy splashing around and just being in the water. It’s incredibly rewarding. We’ll carry this on and look for other ways to help with their ongoing needs.
