Who is Pika?
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.

Dr Wien is an orphopedic specialist at Sanglah Hospital, Bali.
Dr Wien has been her orpthopedic doctor for over one year, and his kind manner always helps Pika relax. Dr. Wien does not charge YKPA for Pika's care.
We wish to express our deep appreciation and respect for his care and his nature.

Putu took her to the hospital for a few visits and strong antibiotics, but she only got worse. Four nights ago she went into emergency surgery at 11pm.
There were no empty beds in the hospital due to the epidemic of dengue now in Indonesia, so Pika stayed in the noisy surgery recovery area for 2 days before getting a regular room.
She is back home at the YKPA Orphanage now where she's receiving care by Putu and staff.
Unfortunately, besides her normal incontinence of urine, requiring she constantly wears diapers (and is still needing evaluation and care of), she is now the same for her bowels!
We are considering what this sweet grateful child now needs to continue to recover from the years of abuse.
YKPA URGENTLY NEEDS HELP IN PAYING HER HOSPITAL BILLS AND FUTURE CARE. Donations are tax-deductible in the UK, US, and Holland. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
