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.

Special patient and her exceptional doctor!

Yesterday, two weeks after her 6th surgery, Pika went in for another surgery followup check.  Besides being a very fortunate and strong child who has endured many hardships, she also is blessed with an exceptionally skilled and compassionate doctor, Dr Wien!

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.
