In some cases a child with cleft lip or an open palate requires more sponsors. How does it work? First: the children (originating from Rote, Timor, Sumbawa and Flores) travel together with their parents and Kolewa staff to the Kolewa shelterhome at Bali, which requires costs for traveling and accomodation. Then, children and parents/supervisors will be lovingly taken care of at our shelterhome. Here they will be provided with a place to sleep, three meals a day and daily activities they can join. Next, which is most important, is to plan their medical journey.
Secondly, costs must be made for the operation, the accomodation of two nights at he hospital, medication and retesting at the Dharma Yadnya hospital. In 2016 these costs were covered by Rotary Club Nusa Dua (Bali) by means of a Global Grant. For 2017 we already made a new request. However, this will take several months. Before it can be granted, the accountability of the application must accepted by the international head office of the club.
The amount of the ticket price and operation can differ, depending on the duration of accomodation,. Though, approximately 500 euros is estimated for the operation and another 500 euros is estimated for traveling and accomodation. When the whole amount is donated by 1 sponsor, only that sponsor will named in showing pictures and publications of the progress. When only a part of the amount is donated (for instance 500 euros) than a combination of sponsors will be named in showing the progress.
Rotary club Nusa Dua still guarantees three operations per month at Bali and project Namaste supports the treatment of these children in the remaining costs. For that reason whe are urgently looking for companies, funds and private organisations who wants to financially support the whole process or only the operation on a monthly base.

An example of the outlined situation is the little Aldius Putra from Flores. The dutch couple Suze and Andre support all costs associated with the operation. Project Namaste from Frankener, guarantee the travel and accomodation costs.
Both donations make it possible for Aldius to enter his medical journey. Shortly, he can live smiling again.
