As you all are probably well aware, Lombok and the Gili Islands were hit with a magnitude 6.9 earthquake on the evening of August 5th. North Lombok and the Gili Islands have suffered tremendously. There has been numerous casualties and significant structural damage.
My name is Howard (better known as Bonny) Jones and I have been living on Gili Trawangan for seven years. We are raising funds for the staff of my hostel. The majority of our local staff are from the towns of Lombok that were hit the hardest. Fortunately, the staff are all okay, however, we cannot say the same for their families and communities. They have suffered immensely.
There are numerous GoFundMe campaigns circulating right now, however, we have created one specifically for the local staff of Broken Compass and Compass Divers. We are asking for help to supply them and their families food, water, shelter and medical supplies.
We want to make it very clear that this money will not be going to the hostel or the dive shop. All donations will go directly to our local staff and their families.
Jon Braithwaite and I will be withdrawing the money and purchasing medical supplies, food, water and necessities and giving it directly to our staff and their families. We will withdraw the money after transferring the donations to bank accounts in Lombok.
Anything you can spare is appreciated. Help our local staff who make up the majority of our beautiful Compass family.
