I wouldn't bring up the "R" word. "R" sensitive of the "R" word? Something about ghosts and the past. If you believe in ghosts that is.blythburgh wrote: ↑Fri Aug 16, 2019 7:07 amMany years ago I was a member of a long defunct site called Pointsvine. Two people joined the site, one was a British born lady who had emigrated to Australia and was then living in Bali where she had opened a clinic to help the local people and wanted to join a community so she could take to fellow Brits.
The other person was a man called Richard who had started a site called Rpoints.
I joined one and became friends with the other. Since then Gloria has left the rented room in the town she was working from. Instead of staying in the comfort of a town she relocated way up the hills to where the poorest and most needy live. She has managed to raise funds to build a proper clinic where nurses can work with the local people. Eventually she managed to raise funds for a house for herself and her adopted Balinese daughter, Claudia
Claudia is now studying to be a teacher and her adoptive Mum is so proud of her. But Gloria's health has suffered dramatically and she is now in a wheelchair. But that is not stopping her working for the good of the poorest people in Bali.
An American living in Bali and another friend of Gloria's has set up a fundraising page to get her the things she needs including an electric powered scooter so she can get from her house to the clinic far more easily. I cannot imagine how hard it is for her to use a manual wheelchair in an area where all paths are just dirt tracks.
