Putu Careen – who was working as a housekeeper for an Australian man in Bali - was attacked on Tuesday evening as her two young children watched in horror.
Rohan Lee, a retired MMA fighter who moved to Canggu from Perth two years ago has been employing Mrs Careen for the past two years and has created a GoFundMe page to help pay for her medical bills and support her children while she recovers.
'Not only is this one of the most vile and vindictive acts of violence I've ever witnessed, the worst part is that in Indonesia there is no welfare or government assistance for medical treatment of this kind,' Mr Lee said.
Distressing images posted to the GoFundme page show huge amounts of blood on a tiled floor inside the house.
'If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Putu, you would know that she is honestly one of the most genuinely kind and caring people you could ever meet,' Mr Lee said.
'She even came to make me her home remedies when I was sick with dengue fever. I struggle to see how anybody could do such a thing to such a loving and caring human being.'
Mr Lee says his employee does not have the money to pay for her medical bills, prosthetic legs or undergo appropriate rehabilitation.
The GoFundMe page has already received over $50,000 in donations and have set a target of $100k.
