Bali Mother and Baby House is more than a refuge. They are a home. Founded in 2015 by a Balinese woman in the memory of her son who passed away at 16, the Bali Mother and Baby House is a safe place for women and children who have nowhere else to go. Life in Indonesia for an unwanted baby is grim. They are often left in rice fields to die or sold illegally. Older children are often abandoned when a relationship breaks down or the child is of mixed ethnicity or religion. Babies and children with disabilities are considered shameful and often abandoned. Illness, particularly mental illness, is misunderstood and there is little compassion shown to those suffering. Babies born from rape and incest are particularly vulnerable, as are their mothers who are often teenagers. Domestic violence against women is prevalent. Many women are living in undesirable situations with their husband and his family. There is often little support from the woman’s family and their respective villages. There is little external infrastructure to support these children and women. Bali Mother and Baby House takes in babies, children and woman faced with these dreadful situations and looks after them for as long as they want to stay.
