2021 was a year in which Bali Care Foundation slowly shifted its focus from short-term solutions to sustainable, long-term solutions. A year in which the foundation expanded its network of volunteers and partnerships with local foundations. In 2022 Bali Care Foundation will focus (even) more on sustainable solutions. For example, the water filters and education projects will be further expanded.
