90 disabled children still need your support

We have raised almost 10% of the required funds.

BSF has started the swimming program with limited numbers of disabled   but we hope to expand the program to intended 100 children with the help of  Global Giving funding.

Indonesia is an island archipelago yet very few people learn how to swim. Drownings are a common occurrence with the majority of people having no understanding of the inherent dangers surrounding activities near or in a water environment. However, there are many children who go against the norm and learn how to swim, show talent and skill, and develop a love for the sport and a desire to achieve excellence. Unfortunately these children are in the minority rather than the majority. *World Health Organisation estimates that 2% of all preventable deaths of children in Asia are caused by drowning. In Indonesia, with a population of over 220,000,000 people, (28.4% are aged under 15yrs#) this would equate to over 3,000 children each year will drown. A staggering and frightening figure, particularly when the vast majority would be preventable.

BSF has request from NGO's in Bali to provide swimming lessons to

Autistic,

Down Syndrome,

Amputee,

Blind

Deaf Mute

Polio

and many other disabilities.

We hope with Global Giving help,we can do this.
