Yayasan Kesehatan Bali (Yakeba) is a Balinese charity providing treatment and education to people living with, or at risk from, drugs, alcohol and HIV/AIDS.
Giving help from experience
Yakeba was founded in 1999 by recovered alcoholic Bob Monkhouse. Yakeba believes people who have lived with drug or alcohol problems or HIV/AIDS are the ones most able to help fellow sufferers.
A range of programmes
Yakeba operates a range of programmes including running awareness sessions in schools and youth groups, providing resources for addicts in rehabilitation and more.
UNAIDS Red Ribbon Award
In 2008, Yakeba was awarded the UNAIDS Red Ribbon Award. The award recognises Yakeba’s community leadership and action in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
