Tom restoring eyesight to blind orphans


I am really proud of Tom, Kate, Michael & Mark - Why? In a world that is sadly disconnected from poor & needy people, these guys have rare DNA, they really care for people and the environment. For many of us during our 'purest' years at University etc, also had dreams to 'Save the Environment or Help Starving People'. Sadly we became disconnected from our dreams as the real world of mortgages, jobs, young family etc stole them.

Tom, Kate, Mark & Michael however are still young, passionate and are both still holding on to these dreams. These dreams however could only be a matter of time before the real world destroys them ... unless we help give them strength and 'the rocket fuel' to carry on doing good. WHAT IS THIS ROCKET FUEL? The rocket fuel is a simple 'Well done Tom!' Well done Michael! Well done Mark, Well Done Kate! It is that easy, lets all post "a well done to them."

Michael, Kate, & Tom are going to go on to do many more great things, so lets help them Believe in their ability to do these things.
So the second thing is in giving $5 pounds to Tom's cause you will let him know he is not alone! We know 5 pounds is nothing! but the pain is that it takes time to find the credit card and put in a few numbers into a online form, don't worry - the payment is secure and credit card safe. Also just because someone someone you you may know puts in $20 pounds and you only have $5 don't worry - you can donate without telling people your details. Tom has taken the initiative lets help him! Please Donate at

More Info:
A BLIND CHILD MIRACLE - LETS HELP TOM GET THE CATARACT SURGERY! where most charities waste money Tom will deliver 100% to help a blind orphan 'Dede' see for the 1st time ever. The kids at the Lombok Blind Orphanage only get only 17 cents for three meals per day and Tom is wants to change this so lets help!
The kids all love Tom who was the 1st Westerner to stay at this orphanage. Since Tom's visit we found 8 of the kids with Cataract Surgery will get to see again. Also we have free land on the Famous Diving Islands - Gilli Trawargan and want to build a blind orphan massage & music school and business for the kids where 4 blind kids that only get 17 cents per day could easily raise US$1,000 per week.

With Tom's money the building will start and you can even come and stay and get your free massage!

The blind child in the photo is a very very smart child called Gawi, Gawi needs a friend and sponsor for skin care help. Is their any body out their who would like to directly sponsor Gawi $1 per day?

Well done Michael, Kate, Mark & Tom

Need of Sumbawa sustainable fisheries management & marine park

WHAT A FOOL! Yup that was me & sadly there were hundreds of days of plunder. The below photo was a third of a 44 gallon drum of crayfish that 2 of us caught in less than 20 minutes! It was a house size rock covered in crayfish, just bristling with feelers like pine needles. Now we get cray fish by the few all because of a mis understanding to how fragile these populations are. New Zealand is lucky though & is blessed with a fairly good sustainable fishing system, sadly the rest of the world isn't and the plunder in some my project areas are getting closer to un fixable. I have been part of & seen some horrific changes to the Bay of Islands - it has changed so much in only 25 years. Positively the 'Kiwi fisherman mentality' in most cases is so different now thanks a lot to TV fishing shows that deliver more understanding and the bravado is more sensible. People are really starting to care so much more in recent times and social media is sprouting so many groups that are out there doing good stuff.
Sadly in poor countries like Indonesia they are desperately behind. Our new Sumbawa sustainable fisheries management & marine park project hopes to help thousands from a bleak future.
Very soon we will have places for people who care to come and stay for free, we will have a big project coordination & support facility so if volunteers want, we can empower people to do their very own environmental research or people helping small project. If you have time check out and come for a visit: and also

Thank you Graeme William Halse

Sri is your very great full Blind Orphan! - Graeme William Halse thank you! This will be a miracle christmas present for her, thank you and the Foy and Halse team so much for helping the kids and sponsoring A$450 for one of our 3 blind orphans for their eyesight restoring surgery. Together with Martin Honey we now have surgery for 2 of the kids with 1 to go for our proposed mid November surgeries.

THE BLIND ORPHANS: Of 30 very poor blind orphans eight with surgery will hopefully see again. These kids are some of the strongest most positive kids I know and get 17cents per day for 3 meals, they are very deserving of help. I am really looking forward to the videos of these kids seeing for the 1st time ... :)

Thank you Martin Honey

AWESOME Martin Honey !!! AYRA is your Blind Orphan!
Ayra doesn't know about his surgery yet but with your sponsored $450 Eye surgery he should be able to see for the 1st time sometime soon!
I am hoping to be able to get a video of him after surgery seeing for the 1st time! Fingers crossed. AYRA is a really brave kid and even though he is blind, plays football, music and is one of the 8 fortunate Orphans from our partner Blind Orphanage that we have discovered that like Ayra that with surgery will see!
If there are any 'work groups' 'church groups' that might want to sponsor a Blind Orphan we have 7 to go. Thanks again

Legs for Pira

August 30, 2013 PIRA'S UPDATE:
Dear All, lovely wife Stacee whose in Australia tells me we have linked Pira up with a wonderful trust - the doctors have seen the video and it will be a year of work. Pira's knees have become feet and with the bone protruding operations will be required. Healing will take time requiring the growth of strong skin. Then the prosthetic legs and at a later date hopefully even some running feet. (a lot of you will now more about this than me)

We will have to contribute in some areas - an anaesthetist - transport - a wheel chair for a while maybe also doctors in Sumbawa and at the end a pair of special 'running feet'. This is Pira and her mother and fathers dream, to run and I feel lumps in my throat hoping we can get her as far as this. My intention is to give her the best possible chance to her dreams, which a lot of us now also share.

LASTLY I CANT STRESS ENOUGH THE VALUE SHARING ON FACE BOOK - FOR ANYONE DOING A GOOD PROJECT, FB IS SO POWERFUL - small amounts of money by a lot of people is a true blessing in more ways than money. Thanks so much.

PS Check out Pira's slowly growing amount of $ funding, which Mark Baldwin kindly set up.

'LEGS FOR PIRA' UPDATE: 2nd Surgery success! and now back to Dugong Village to heal and grow strong for her new legs! For all who maybe following & supporting Pira, (who lost her legs in a bus accident when she was 2 yrs) - all is going well & she is in good hands with the John Fawcett Foundation surgeons completing her second operation.

Pira's family village has gained a huge faith in people, they all extend a real warmth and thank you for your belief & help with their smartest student.
See Pira's Villlage:
Video of Pira in her village:

PS If anybody wants to help Pira we have a online funding going.

Mahsyar blind orphanage in need of help

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO A MIRACLE for someone, this could be it.
I will even share a video of your miracle of orphan Zac or one of his 7 friends opening their eyes & seeing for the first time, the next day after their surgery.
Dear Sir Madam, 2 Weeks ago I found an amazing blind orphanage in Lombok that needed help. The Orphanage was set up 30 years ago and run by a famous blind singer 'Mahsyar' but he has recently had a stroke and is now struggling to feed his 30 blind Orphans. See website I made about Orphanage:

!! These guys are only getting 17 cents for three meals per day !! plus clothing from government! This is no where near enough even in Indonesia.

AMAZING AMAZING NEWS: I got the wonderful John Fawcett to send his amazing Eye specialists in from Bali to check out the children. .. and 8 of the children could very likely see for the first time for the sake of simple cataract surgery !!! This is fantastic but is sadly too expensive even at $438 which is what the John Fawcett foundation needs to so as to do the surgery to the children. The $438 cost is for the anaesthetics that are required to keep the pain low and child still. The actual surgery costs John will do for free.

I need a bit of help with this and would warmly welcome anyone print off the belo PDF link - poster and pin them up everywhere in an effort to get friends and work colleagues to come together to put some small money together to create a miracle.

A day after the operation I would love to share what will be an amazing video with you and other friends, of your sponsored child seeing for the first time!

Thank you all so much Peter Honey
Text or call me on 021998198

PS Here is a PDF for those that want to help

Brainstorming on manta ray 'Sea Sanctuaries'

Great Evening & even better whisky with Andrew & Steve from 'Sea Sanctuaries' brainstorming the Manta, Dugong, Shark & Dolphin killing problem in the Lombok Komodo Region. A region that very likely could be hold worlds largest Manta Ray Populations. Why do the Chinese like medicines that always need endangered species?

Tom Gammage's visit of Tanjung Luar fish market

Words cannot describe how shocked Tom Gammage was after visiting the world renowned Tanjung Luar fish market on the 1st September.
ive been really busy
After working with Peter Honey at our new "Dugong Village' ( I decided to take a visit to the infamous fish market in the East of Lombok, Indonesia to take an inside look at how true the rumours were, and exactly what they were extracting. On a DAILY BASIS an AVERAGE of 20 large sharks, 3-5 manta ray and many more smaller sharks are caught; not to mention the dolphins, dugongs and other rare and protected species. We decided to document these horrific and largely illegal fishing practices and bring it to a worldwide audience in order to help bring this to an end. We are creating an edited video and several photographs from the day which will be released and posted soon, and will be sharing it through numerous networks. These photos are just a small glimpse of the truly shocking fishing activity that is going on at Tanjung Luar Market - located in the heart of one of the most biodiverse regions of the world. Watch this space for the upcoming video.

Blind orphanage project

FINALLY AFTER A YEAR TOMORROW I FINALLY GET TO MEET A BLIND BOY THAT I MADE A PROMISE TO MYSELF. A year struggling with Ani Budjen's project ( was killing me with difficulty, and I had to put this project on hold. At the time I was disconnected from good charities, resources, and people like Mark Izzard and others, and also we couldn't really utilise our talented NPO team that so want to help. (This has know changed) On my priority 'do list' was to track down this young blind boy and to see if there was some skin medication or something we can get for him. I visited 'the blind orphanage a day or two ago but missed him so tomorrow is the day! Man, have I got a story to share - a story full of fun and sadly disappointment - it also has lead me to meet one of my new super heroes - an old not so well blind man who is a Indonesia famous 'Stevie Wonder' Abdul is his name and he set up this amazing but poor kids blind orphanage . More in the next day or two.
Also Ani manage to raise $100 which we will give to the young boy tomorrow for starters.( Liana Ma - Sam Honey - Stacee Harris Honey - Mark Mark Baldwin - Kate Thompson - Kate Frost - Robyn Carter - Ryan Rabidou - Lord Michael John.
