Yayasan Senyum was established in 2005 at the urging of craniofacial doctors in Australia and Indonesia who saw the need for an organization that could support poor patients suffering from craniofacial disabilities by assisting them through funding and logistic support. These craniofacial disabilities include cleft lip, palate, and a variety of other conditions such as facial tumours, facial accident trauma, etc.
Yayasan Senyum Bali works to raise fund for these operations and establish partnerships with other organizations to provide logistical and technical support such as patient transportation to attend appointments of check-ups and operations, patient accommodation at our Smile House facility, supplying food for patient, emotional and logistic support for patients suffering facial abnormalities to help them progress through the health care system, and making all possible arrangements such as obtaining papers (passport, visas and flight) to Australia for patient that are suffering from serious conditions of craniofacial disabilities.
Yayasan Senyum also has a Smile Shop in Ubud, which is a charity shop to help raise fund for covering the administration of Yayasan Senyum Bali. We sell a variety of donated pre goods still in good condition, and these goods are donated by generous individuals or communities that wants to help our patients get the help they need.
