Counseling Sub Committees
So far twenty-one victims of the bomb blast have been
receiving individual outpatient care and counseling.
YKIP managed to arrange for Bali Hati to pay for a nurse
with a mobile telephone on which she may be contacted
by the patients when in need. She is also provided with
a motor vehicle four days a week with which she is able
to make home visits.
A group therapy session attended by 9 of the patients
was organized by YKIP at doctor Robert Reverger's
residence. IMC agreed to pay for this and have subsequently
agreed to hold another group session; this time at
the IMC office on Saturday 11th January at 10.00 am.
Some of these patients have agreed to have individual
consultations with Dr. Robert.
A list of 150 more potential patients was obtained
from Parum Samigita and forwarded to IMC who have
since started to do a ground survey of the candidates.
YKIP also had a discussion with Dr. Robert regarding
therapy for the children from the scholarship program
and their families.
The Wayang Kulit performance has been very well received
and there are discussions on possible further funding
from USAID to continue the program and from UNICEF
to take it around the schools. A follow-up video of
'The Voice of the People' will also be made to gauge
the public's feelings.
Eric Kaler from Rotary/YKIP informed the meeting as
World Bank - USAID - UNDP are working together on
a survey, which will be used to manage their response.
The assessment they produce from the surveys will
be announced at the CGI meeting in Bali at the end
Most of their US$30 Million earmarked for Bali will
be distributed at the Kecamatan level after focus
groups determine the needs and government plans and
approvals are received. Largest allocations are likely
to be for infrastructure improvements in each of the
53 Kecamatans, and not for food, unemployment, or
Other large organizations planning recovery assistance
Note: Parum Samigita has circulated two letters giving their views and proposals on economic recovery to the distribution list subsequent to the meeting.
