Ms Foster shared heartwarming photos of her visit on Facebook with the NSW beauty salon owner encouraging tourists to donate to the orphanages.

Cruel trolls immediately swooped in to attack Ms Foster and her choice of clothing.

Ms Foster had dressed down because of the humidity in Bali and was wearing a swimsuit and crop top. 

‘Next time it would prob be much more respectful to keep your puppies inside your clothes,’ one social media user wrote.

‘It’s not something children need to experience at a young age.’

Another claimed Ms Foster should have done her research on reputable charities to make sure she wasn’t visiting a facility that was taking advantage of children.

‘I’m not hating anyone. I’m just saying tourists to Bali should be more responsible as to how they help children,’ they wrote.

‘Charities need to be transparent and responsible about how they operate.

‘I understand the poster meant well but this is not a good example of how we can support children in need.’ 

Ms Foster was quick to fire back at the haters.

‘Hilarious how quick judgement comes because of what I am wearing,’ she wrote.

‘A swimsuit I had on already from the morning on a 33 degree day in humidity I am not used to, how dare I.

‘It’s not meaningful because I took pictures? I had friends from Australia donate to me back home to bring money here to do this for the children when I mentioned I wanted to visit, so I am sharing with them.

‘I loved my time there, loved meeting the children and no one’s going to change my mind,’ she said.

Social media users were quick to come to her defence slamming the online trolls.

‘That’s such a beautiful thing,’ one wrote. ‘Doesn’t matter what you wear that’s not what the post is about peeps. God bless you.’

A second said: ‘Either way at the end of the day you did a good thing. People can judge all they want but at-least in your heart you know you did the right thing girl. X.’
