The purpose of this blog

Pika is an abused and neglected child with multiple birth defects, physical and social problems, and entrusted to the care of YKPA, an organization helping street children in Bali Indonesia.

She needs a large team of people to help her heal her previous trauma, and afford the cost of her care.

The following posts will first give her history and history of care at the orphanage, then follow her ongoing care.

We hope you will join her team, and how about following her story at the link above!
