About Jodie O'Shea Orphanage Like most things in life, implementing the decision to open an orphanage in memory of Jodie O'Shea, did not happen overnight. In the aftermath of the Bali bombing on October 12, 2002, many people wanted to contribute in some way to create a future of opportunities for those who had very little. A compassionate and determined group of people combined their resources to improve the lives of children here in Bali. We extend our heartfelt thanks to those people for their commitment - their support enabled building to commence in March 2005 and we opened our doors four months later. We have over forty children ranging in ages from 2 to 18 years. Of these children, some are from Sumba, a very poor and arid island to the east of Bali, some are from Bali and few from other island of Indonesia.
