On August 5th at 7:45 pm our families personally witnessed this huge Natural Disaster in Lombok/Indonesia. The Epicentre was just 20km away from our home. Within 20 seconds a Paradise changed into a war zone alike scene. 90% of our staff, our local friends our community lost their homes. With the little they earn they saved money to build their small and simple house, all gone now.

The owner Team of Samba Villas, Gili Trawangan and Princess of Mentigi Bay, North Lombok
Joachim (Joe) Ruff - Germany
Vivian Ruff - Taiwan 
Sam Safriel - Indonesia 
are managing this campaign to support our staff with families and our/their communities.

With the funds we raise we will provide direct help with food, water, medicine, blankets and tents for our staff families and their communities . We formed a rescue team, delivering goods daily under our personal supervision.

The money we raise in our Offshore Account will be 1:1 paid to our Samba Mandiri Putra Indonesian Donation Account in local currency and goes right away into shopping required goods.

Like may others, our staff lost everything they worked and saved for


Not yet everybody has such a nice camp, many tarps and tents, pillows and blankets are still needed


Education resumes but not every child has the chance to study in such comfortable environment


The majority of students gets lessons without any roof


With your Donations we can change something, every day at one step. It will be a long road to go until Lombok recovers


We will make sure you Donation goes 1:1 to the people in Need
