It’s hard to forget the truly beautiful family of four we recently wrote about who, despite living on a trash dump in extremely poor conditions, takes care of many homeless cats and dogs and others they have welcomed into their impoverished but happy lives.

When we first met seven-year-old Ika (pictured with friend Kadek) and her mother Maria, father Eka and baby sister Salfi, they had one much loved cat named Lupus. Soon they had taken in another five cats. And now they are lovingly caring for two small puppies that Pak Eka found heartlessly dumped in a rice sack.

BAWA helps this family to keep all its animals healthy and happy by arranging vet care, nutritious food, vaccinations and sterilisation.

We’ll do the same for the two new members as well. This big-hearted family is able to give endless amounts of love and attention which these abandoned and simply homeless animals so desperately need. But without BAWA they wouldn’t be able to care for the animals they have adopted and others that live on the trash dump. This is just another reason why donations are so badly needed and so deeply appreciated at BAWA.

With your help we can assist families like Ika’s to carry on giving love and care to animals without having to sacrifice their own wellbeing. To join Friends of Bawa or make a single donation please CLICK HERE. Every donation helps.

It saves a life. Thank you!
