Staff on Bali
Syta and Peter are since 2015 supported by a small, enthusiastic and hardworking team of five young Indonesian women: Ana, Uttari, Widia, Holldyn and Ersa. They run the shelter home “Rumah Bicara” in Denpasar, escort patients to the hospital, give speech lessons in the relief centre and on several locations, they join outreach-activities, missions and family gatherings. Housekeeper Klement, cooker Heldi and driver Komang were added to the team in 2016/2017.
