On sunday August 5, 2018 a major earthquake hit the Indonesian Island of Lombok. Many people have died, are injured or lost their houses. Everyone is traumatized. The people who had been hit the hardest, are the ones who already did not have much. Now they lost everything they had.
As many know, I am Indonesian and I have family living on Lombok.
Thankfully, my family living on Lombok only had material damage, and nobody got hurt. My niece, who is a registered nurse on Lombok is now determined to help the people who had been hit hard by the eartquake. She and her friends will provide food, drinking water, blankets, tents and sanitary supplies to to people who need it. They will buy everything themselves en bring it by motorcycle to places where the earthquake hit hard. She knows people living in these areas and wants to help these families. Some places are hard to reach by car or truck because the roads are damaged and there are still earthquakes.
We try to help as much as we can because we know that authorities and organisations can not help everybody immediately. Therefore every little donation is welcome. A few hundred euros can already give blankets, food and water to several families. People are now in need, so we need your donation as soon as possible so we can help people in these critical times.
