Who is Pika?

Pika is a seriously disabled child who was required to beg in the streets of Bali for many years.

In December 2009, Pika was rescued by the Bali Street Kids Project (www.ykpa.org). Her care has required extensive treatments, many medical specialists and transports, as well as social working to help her and the other children adjust to a normal life. She endured 4 surguries in 5 months, the last was life saving. She needs ongoing medical and social care for her to become a normal kid; and donations to afford it all.

Post Surgery (we hope)

JUNE 4, 2010: Pika came home from the hospital today, with no hair and thinner than ever after being required to lie on her belly for some 7 weeks so far. The other kids in the orphanage must hardly know her now that she has been gone so much to the hospital, and the girls are in fear of having no hair like her.

With the just recent renting of additional buildings for the orphanage, big renovations are happening these weeks, meaning big mess everywhere. The only good place for Pika is in a clean room that is somewhat isolated, meaning she is isolated even more from the other kids.

Every day we check her back in fear that her sutures are leaking again, but no, she is still okay.
