The Jodie O’Shea Orphanage on the island of Bali, Indonesia was opened in 2005. It was named after Jodie O’Shea in memory of a person who devoted her life to helping others and who died in the terror act that struck Bali in 2002.

The orphanage protects almost 100 children, aged from 9 months to 19 years, from Bali, Sumba and other Indonesian islands from the plight of unimaginable poverty and hunger (view thegallery). 

The poster made by children of orphanage - the gratitude to the Boris and Inara Teterevs.

Living at the orphanage, children and adolescents experience miraculous changes. They are embracing a life they have never known - a healthy diet, an education, being nurtured and cared for and having the freedom to simply be children.

The orphanage is funded only by private donations. This financial support makes it possible to cover the expenses required to pay for food, the administration of the orphanage building, the orphans’ education costs and salaries for staff.
