Human rights activist, midwife and CNN's Hero of the Year
A midwife, mother, grandmother, and a human rights advocate, Robin Lim is a woman with many talents – and an enormous heart. Known and loved by many in Bali and far beyond (she was one of the first responders to natural disasters in Indonesia and the Philippines), Robin is on a mission to protect the earth’s smallest citizens: newborns and children.
She founded her non-profit organisation, “Yayasan Bumi Sehat”, in 1995, and since then, she and her team have been working tirelessly to provide education, and pre- and post- natal services to mothers and families, to help improve their quality of life throughout pregnancy.
In 2011, she was named CNN’s Hero of the Year, which helped to highlight the importance of midwife-to-mother care during pregnancy. Since then, she has continued to be recognised for her work on global platforms.
Robin Lim is a true Local Legend.
