The foundation could not exist with out the kind support of a few wonderful people who have felt our need. Our special thanks to:
Maria is from Spain. She found out about the Kupu-Kupu Foundation from the Manager of the Melia Hotel in Nusa Dua, Bali. Two of our young handicapped clients are now making 500 pair of sandals for the hotel every month. She loves Bali and has been there several times.
In January 2002 she made a donation of US$2,500 to our Foundation to support our projects and activities. Thank you very much Maria.
Derek and Gerry are from England and like Maria, were also guests of the Melia Hotel. Gerry is disabled and has to use a wheelchair. They come to Bali twice a year and decided to get involved with the Foundation and be our representatives in England. There they talked to friends and raised money through family, friends and their community. This year they bought us a mobile phone and motorbike to use in our work. Thank you Derek and Gerry for your kind support.
