Help Needed for Lombok Earthquake

As most of you are aware the island of Lombok has suffered two major earthquakes in the space of under two weeks.  The north of the island and the popular tourist destinations of the three Gili Islands were badly affected by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake on Sunday 5th August. www.google.co.id/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-asia-45124972 
These earthquakes have caused destruction and devastation for thousands of people across the island and have sadly resulted in the deaths of 347 people with many others wounded. Approximately 156,000 people have been displaced and are living in tents in fields and open spaces.
As most of you know I have been living in Lombok for the best part of 10 years with my husband, Hariyadi, and our three children. Hari and his family are from the Gili islands and his mother lives in a small village not far from Pemenang. Her village was flattened and tragically three people died. All family members who were evacuated from Gili Trawangan are living with his mum in a tent along with other members of the village. While food supplies are getting through there is no electricity and the entire village are relying on one small generator.
We would like to raise enough money for either 1 large generator or 2 or 3 smaller ones to restore power until the main electricity cables have been fixed.
Once electricity has been restored in this area we will ensure the generators are passed onto other villages further up north who need power.
If we do not reach our target we will use whatever donations we receive to buy large water containers for families to store water for washing and cooking.
We are grateful for donations no matter how small. A little really goes a long way here in Lombok.
Please share with families and friends so we can help the people in the village of Sumurmual.
