Bali Rainbow Community (BRC) is a non-profit organization of businesses and individuals committed to assist HIV & AIDS awareness, education and financial support for positive patients in need within the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) community in Bali.
Since 2011 we have donated our funds to assist the following NGOs continue with their outreach works and medical treatments:
- Yayasan Dua Hati
- Yayasan Gaya Dewata
- Yayasan Bali Peduli
- Yayasan Kerti Praja
- Yayasan Spiritia Paramacitta
- Bali Medika Clinic
- WARCAN – Transgender Shelter House
- WARGAS – Transgender Singaraja
Financial support has been provided to these agencies to continue their work in programs such as:
- Direct client medical / hospital / living expenses
- Incentives and administration expenses
- HIV / AIDS awareness programs
- “Test & Treat ” program
Most Indonesians LGBT with HIV+ status required medical follow up, additional tests and treatments. Due to their financial background some of them are either unable or delayed with their ARV treatments till AIDS progressing and causing live threatening conditions.
This is why we set up Bali Rainbow Community. It means leaving no one behind and removing punitive laws, policies and practices that violate people’s dignity and human rights. We strive to support those affected to receive access to comprehensive HIV services, without discrimination: transgenders, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs and prisoners.
