One month and more than 1500 aftershocks later, scientists have reported that the island of Lombok has lifted by 25cm. Over 550 people dead, with up to 500,000 people homeless. People continue to sleep outside for fear of further earthquakes and falling debris. They need shelter, safe drinking water, food, clothes, etc. There has been a recent outbreak of malaria, compounding the urgency of medicine and clean living conditions.
I have decided to partake in Hell and Back 10km this year, as a means to an end to raise money for the local people of Lombok. I'm covering all costs of participating myself, and promise that any money raised will go directly to the people of Lombok. Through social media, I am still in contact with locals who we met along on our trip. Based on their first hand experience and advice, I shall choose the recipients of any donations carefully. Considering that €1 converts to 17,333 Indonesian rupiah, any donation (big or small) would be hugely appreciated!
