One of my favorite charitable organizations is The Bali Animal Welfare Association, or BAWA for short. BAWA is a not-for-profit charity registered in Indonesia with a mission is to relieve suffering, control the population and improve the health of Bali’s street dogs while educating the local population in animal welfare.
BAWA supports a fully staffed clinic near Ubud, a 24 hour animal ambulance, a mobile sterilization clinic, an education program, a puppy adoption program, plus a continually expanding range of community programs.
BAWA is funded by individual donors and the Bali Street Dog Fund but urgently seeks support for its many programs.
BAWA has helped countless animals over the years, including a dog we befriended named “Lili.” If you would like to know more about BAWA, you can check out their website and Facebook page.
I encourage everyone to donate time and $ if you are ever lucky enough to spend time on magical Bali.
