Yayasan Senyum Bali runs a half way house known as the "Smile House". This house is located on Jalan Pulau Aru 9 Denpasar, close to Sanglah Hospital which is the general hospital in Denpasar where most of the patients operations assisted by us, are taken place.
The Smile House is used for patients to be accommodated prior to and after their operations as well as the head office of the Yayasan.
Patients and their escorts ( ie usually one family member or a friend) are looked after at The Smile House including their meals free during their stay at the Smile House. The Yayasan Senyum Bali Patient Coordinator assists patients through the complexities of the Indonesian Health System ie attending hospital clinics and specialist appointments until they receive their surgeries.
The Smile House was generously donated by one donor who has been supporting our work for long period of time to help bringing smiles back to faces.
We are grateful that the Australian Consulate-General in Bali through Direct Aid Program (DAP) supported us to buy the Smile Bus. It is an important part of our daily operational activities. The key aim of it is to transport patients from the Smile House to hospitals and back, to collect patients to and from airport and ferry ports. We also use the bus for collecting donations for our Smile Shops and transport medical teams when we do medical missions. The Smile Bus likewise serve to transport the Smile Team to go to some places to hold our programs such as doing socialization programs around Bali, charity events, and pick up patients from hinterland area.
