Update of your child’s progress
Komang Wardana is an older boy, who grew up through the Panti Asuhan Semara Putra orphanage in Klungkung due to his hearing challenges.

It's not common for the Bikabele hearing aid program to assist adults, however, there was a special sponsorship paid to have Komang fitted with hearing aids, as he returns regularly to the orphanage to help out and see his younger brothers and sisters, many who he spent time with as a younger lad.

We saw benefits in this happening, because 
Komang has a good relationship with the children, that if he could hear and learn to speak, he could play a big role in helping the younger children through the same program.   It is a long road for Komang, purely because of his age when he was fitted - however, he persists with his speech therapy and in his own way, he is able to give morale support to the younger children.  The fact he has the same challenges as the younger children is helpful to the younger child, as they see Komang as being the same as themselves.

Komang is very sincere in his gratitude towards Bikabele and his sponsors, he fully understands the nature of support he and the children receive and he is very keen to show his thanks.   He also has learnt the art of reflexology, and is very quick to offer us a quick massage when we visit if he sees an opportunity.   Komang is also very good friends with the other older lad, Nengah Rapet, who grew up with Komang in the orphanage, and was also given sponsorship at an older age due to special circumstances.  So together, Rapet and Komang are like mentors to the younger hearing impaired children, and both play a role in helping to care for the children during the day and guiding them in the right direction.

Komang works on his speech and gets his regular 
ear checks, hearing aids checked etc when Lumina, our hearing specialist team visit monthly.  He's a bright enough lad who lives separate from the orphanage and is now married.
