CV Lumina is a business equipment company that, through its commercial work, funds community projects for hearing-impaired children in Bali. The company provides testing equipment for schools to detect hearing impairments in children, operates a preschool for hearing-impaired children, and provides hearing aids for children in need. CV Lumina also funds a medical outreach programme in rural areas.

Disabled transportation and travel

Bali is not well-suited for people with reduced mobility as curbs are often high and without ramps. Public transportation is not equipped to accommodate passengers with reduced mobility.

There are a small number of specialised travel companies that can provide private transport for wheelchair users; all of these companies provide a driver as well. Only some vehicles have wheelchair lifts installed, therefore it is suggested to enquire prior to booking.
