Thanks to people’s overwhelming kindness and generosity, market dog Bengbeng is recovering from amputation of a back leg at the safe and loving home of Anna and Miles, 5. The mother and son went to BAWA’s Ubud shop at Jl Monkey Forest 100x to donate for Bengbeng and spotted Russ Carr’s photobook of Bali street images. On returning to the UK from Bali recently, photographer and Good Guy Russ quickly produced and sent 25 copies of his terrific book and postcards to BAWA. At the shop to donate, Anna and Miles instantly loved the book. And wanting so much to help Bengbeng, they promptly paid about 10 times the price of the book of 43 fabulous images to help save Bengbeng’s live.




Mum and young son then headed to the clinic to visit Bengbeng before surgery. And so smitten were they with the lovely dog that they called BAWA with an offer to foster after the op. “Please let me know when we can take Bengbeng home,” said Anna. Now Bengbeng is getting lots of love and heaps of help to walk on only 3 legs after being hit by a vehicle.


Happy outcomes don’t come much better than that. From the UK, Russ said: “I’m so pleased for you guys and most of all Bengbeng. I would have never expected news like that. I’m so chuffed that the books have made a difference. It’s fantastic. I was a bit speechless to be honest.”


One of Russ’s Bali images recently won second prize in a London and Essex professional competition.
