SECOND EARTHQUAKE hit last night   .. Lombok Forgotten Children founder Endri's home in Mataram is flattened .. the below video is not pleasant, but shows the reality of what our foundation boys (and girls) are facing and the work they are doing .. a lot of deaths and damage this time .. 7.1 quake damage is now everywhere eg  .. and our new Tanjung Foundation building also hit but very repairable .. good time to be generous if you can .. team are tired .. our hospital vans need fuel .. teams phones need power paks .. coordination just stepped up another level & true damage is just unfolding ...
When the going gets tough, the tough get going .. so we need our volunteer teams strong  .. we need fuel for our hospital vans which have been moving tons of Food and Aid around, (a lot of food is being donated from hotels) also many new needs are arising like  simple phone battery pacs to stop phones going flat, a couple of small tablets for coordinating lists of needs  ..  team are doing really good but super tired.

A huge thanks from our teams and those the people they are supporting and please forgive me if I don't get the chance to personally message you.

 

WHAT ARE WE FUNDING FOR?   WHO DO WE AIM TO HELP?
Our focus is always towards the most vulnerable and those that cannot help themselves:
Lombok Forgotten Children Founder Endri just messaged me "we are having Earthquakes - need help bad mate"  :(     ... below are situation photos of our shaken volunteers from this morning, showing the suffering around them and the great things they are doing to help in Earthquake Lombok.           

Our Lombok Forgotten Children EF home Foundation bases are in the middle of where Lombok Earthquake was  centred,  we have 50 to 100 active LFC EF volunteers here - they are poor people but passionate. 

This is our Foundation home territory,  Endri knows every village, and village leader, govt here so we have the right man to coordinate our team in the places of need where Govt, Army, Police etc may not. 

Along with Endri's tasks, he is also importantly  Red Cross (Red Crescent) CEO for North Lombok Region so they have lots going on.  

There will be lots of normal people helping normal people .. but there are those who are not so lucky who maybe elderly, with out family and friends around them, single mums, and disabled and sick also - people who dont have the ability or connections to help themselves

Govt Aid etc to Lombok  will going hard out over the next few weeks while it is fresh and on the news, but earthquake & disaster experts & their experiences are telling us tells that after this period a lot of the people who cant help themselves may get into a lot of difficulty. 

The problems will continue for months ahead, so the team will have a 3 month goal -  keeping the suffering of those that cannot help themselves as small as possible, many live 'cash less lives' - they will need a few dollars or some food aid, maybe bandages and medicines or assistance with plastic covers or help to build basic shelters.  - (your dollars will not going to people who have money and ability to help themselves)

Thank you to everyone who has donated or is about too, we couldn't have achieved this without each and everyone of you no matter how big or small the donations are. Donations are still needed, as we have a long way to go. It has been a busy week with co-ordination from our teams collecting and distributing aid, and we are now able to access the remoter areas. Below is a video from Endri the founder of Lomboks Forgotten Children, Endri Foundation. Please watch the video as he visits his own devastated home village in Tanjung north Lombok, tired and worn out but still wanting to express his gratitude to you all.
