100+ Gunung Agung Evacuees Take Shelter At Bumi Sehat

More than 100 evacuees (pengungsi) from Gunung Agung’s ongoing eruptions are currently staying indefinitely at Bumi Sehat. They are coping with the loss of their farms, homes and livelihood but all are safe.

Since September 2017, Bali’s highest mountain, Gunung Agung, has shown varying levels of volcanic activity. Initially the Indonesian government raised the alert level to the highest possible Level 4. Then in October it was lowered to Level 3. Finally, on the 21st and 25th of November Gunung Agung erupted with larger eruptions still expected to come.


Video story of the first wave of pregnant evacuees at Bumi Sehat in September. Now they’ve been evacuated for a second time – this time with their newborn babies!

If you can contribute in any way or any amount, please help!
These are the people who grow Bali’s food for the restaurants, guesthouses, hotels and markets that we all enjoy. They have been quietly feeding all of us in the past – now it’s our turn to feed them! Let’s keep our extended island family cared for while they shelter with us away from Gunung Agung’s eruption.

YBS-Donate-Sabita

Sabita Bhatterai is a young woman with determination, grit, and an immense desire to work. Help us raise the $1000 needed for Sabita to complete her Nursing & Skilled Birth Attendant Training.

Since the devastating 2015 Nepal Gorka earthquake, Sabita has dedicated herself to becoming a nurse and completing the three-year Skilled Birth Attendant Training program. In her first two years, Sabita has maintained excellent grades and high evaluations, including an award of recognition from the Dhading medical clinic – where she helped so many in the dark days following the earthquake.

Now in her final year, Sabita needs your help to raise the remaining $1000 to complete her training. Your generous support will help Sabita bring maternal healthcare to women who have little access to clinics and hospitals in the difficult conditions of rural Nepal. Please donate below. Thank you!

Update: Donations are now closed as we have reached our funding goal. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously!

    Ibu Robin’s 60th Birthday at the New Bumi Sehat Bali Clinic

    “Dear Family, The outpouring of LOVE from our Bumi Sehat community, was just bliss to witness. Hundreds of Children, most of them Born Gently, enjoyed face painting, games, gifts of whistles and we put flowers in their hair, & Helium Balloons! Our village elders all attending, with Bumi Sehat T-Shirts to dance. Favorite musicians of the Youth and the Elders sang LOVE songs and Activist ballads. The Village really never before came together with xpats in this way. There were so many flowers. As the hours melted into late, I gave roses to each woman… And the children, and the men wished for flowers too. There was rain and dancing in the mud. And — FOOD. A mOm in labor too. It was heaven on Earth. Thank YOU Terima Kasih, to our Bumi Sehat family. Those of you in Bali, and those far away but close in heart. I feel hope & LOVE and Peace on Earth, have a darn good chance. Signing up to last 108 healthy years on this amazing Earth. May we all stay healthy & happy together. In Gratitude, Terima Kasih

    I LOVE each of You” ~ Ibu Robin Lim
