Details

Santa Claus makes a happy appearance as ornaments from Bali. Wayan Cidra, from Bhakti Senang Hat, crafts each albesia wood ornament by hand and paints two in maroon and two in green. The set of four ornaments hangs from golden cords. I never went to school because of my parent's financial limitations, and also because I got poliomyelitis when I was just a child and it left me with weakened knees. I wanted to help my parents in some way, so I have been crafting ornaments since I was 14 years old. Although I'm not really happy with my physical condition, I'm happy doing ornaments and hopefully my products can make more people happy. My wife is the one who helps me in making these ornaments, which I hope makes peoples Christmas happier.

Story Behind the Art:
Bhakti Senang Hati was founded and is run by people with physical challenges who provide a special service for the physical challenged in Bali. Non-profit organizations are important in Indonesia, as government funding for handicapped people is limited. Bhakti Senang Hati assists people living with disabilities. Without assistance from the private sector, many disabled Balinese people, including children, remain marginalized, thus limited from benefiting or contributing to society. In many parts of Indonesia, and certainly in Hindu Bali, having a disabled child is considered evidence of bad karma. The majority of the Balinese people are Hindu. To be born with or to have a physical challenge is perceived as black magic, bad karma for the individual and/or their family. Many people believe that the child is being punished and a bad spirit of a deceased ancestor has been reincarnated in the child. Hence, a disabled child is a disgrace to the family. In the past, these children were often hidden away in back rooms, were never sent to school, and received little or no medical care. Attitudes are changing but it is still not uncommon to come upon children and sometimes even adults who have been isolated in this way. The foundation creates programs to develop self confidence, physical and economic independence, and to increase awareness in the general community of the rights of people with disabilities. It also endeavors to meet with disabled individuals and lift them out of their social isolation, provide technical assistance to achieve physical independence, build confidence in those with disabilities by providing them with a normal social life, build self-confidence through assertiveness training, and teach skills that will enable members to become self-supporting, especially painting, sewing and woodwork. Bhakti Senang Hati accomplishes this through the help of volunteers who provide skills training and social interaction. The society also provides wheelchairs and housing, and runs Bhakti Senang Hati Places, a home for disabled children. By joining Novica, Bhakti Senang Hati's goals are to help people with disabilities achieve a better life by introducing their handicrafts worldwide.
