The Beginning
It all started in 2008 when I followed my desire and addiction to climb as many volcanoes in Indonesia as possible. This time it was Gunung Merapi sitting just above the sulfur mines of Kawah Ijen. It was then when I discovered 400 porters which make their living in a most horrific brutal way. Two baskets filled with 60-90kg sulphur carried on their shoulders for at least three hours at a time and a daily wage of just a little more then US$12. In total disbelief I returned back to Bali, described my emotions to my wife Puji and then looked for ways to assist each porter and their family. Several months later we returned with the back of our truck loaded with no longer needed garments and a heart that was open to help.
