Sometimes people ask which charities to support in Bali…This is one of the absolute ‘diamonds’…Sarah Chapman and Robert Epstone do the most remarkable work – and so much of it is ‘hands on’. This organisation is world class – whatever you feel you can give, small or large, will always be appreciated too.
Solemen Indonesia post almost daily they show photos of what they’re doing, they show where the money is going, they show their gratitude for the people who have donated, they are totally transparent. I need all the help they can get. They specialize in medical help which cost thousands and thousands of dollars for specialized surgery and Hospital situation. They distribute food, clothing, medical assistance, wheelchairs, everything that’s needed the most and they document everything. You can trust this organization with every cent that you donate to go to exactly where it’s intended to.
I have followed you guys for a while on social media and really appreciate the way you recognize people and companies who work with you in one way another

“How can the Sudarsana Family ever thank you enough. Ibu has suffered such pain with these nasty infected ulcers. You and your team brought miracle to her and her family. Until Solemen team came to visit, the family was terrified of all hospitals. Nurse Sarah Chapman presented such a convincing rational explanation for the need of a hospital visit that tomorrow, the family will take Ibu for an X-ray. Thank you so much for one of your team being at the hospital to guide the family through the necessary procedures. There were a lot of tears in that room today, all of gratitude and relief. Such kindness is a beautiful thing to see. Please keep up your good work.”
“Solemen’s extraordinary actions have reminded us of the presence of unfortunate people amidst Bali’s glittering tourism industry. Congratulations for Robert Epstone and team for your tremendous works!”

I wish to thank the wonderful souls at Solemen for the amazing amount of help they gave to a lovely boy from Lombok. He had seriously detreating eye sight and a diagnosis of future blindness within a year or so.
Sarah Chapman helped us find a hospital for him to have the restorative surgery needed, and her and the wonderful team looked after him in their Yayasan for his month in Bali. They drove him back and forward for appointments, fed and housed him and kept him safe.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤
This is the side of the job people don't often to see. Together with Solemen Indonesia we are changing. We spent 5 hours scrubbing pee and poop together this morning to start giving a family better life. Solemen have done the mental health assessment and will handle the medical part of us, my team are not qualified to handle serious mental health issues but when we partner with solemen we can achieve almost anything. My team will provide the ongoing food on daily essentials they need and also cover the costs of monthly medications. Working together is the key to helping people and making an impact for the better. Sarah is my absolute hero and inspiration and my team are so blessed we can work beside each other.
