While we were climbing Mount Rinjani we got hit by this earthquake. We were saved by the team of Hallo Trekker and they stayed with us till we were safe!
After getting back to their home town we saw that people were injured and lost their houses. It was devastating to see...
Right now we are still in contact with the people from Senaru and they have told that 28 homes are completely gone and a lot of work needs to be done on fixing other houses. Rustam Efendi - the owner of Hallo Trekker is working with his team of 10 guys to start rebuilding Senaru. Therefore they need our help!
UPDATE: ON THE 5TH OF AUGUST A NEW EARTHQUAKE HIT THE SENARU AREA, KILLING 82 PEOPLE! PLEASE SUPPORT OUR CAUSE IN ANYWAY POSSIBLE!!
Who are we and where are we from:
We are Maarten van den Nieuwenhuijzen and Lianne van Alphen, a Dutch couple living in Stockholm. We were climbing Mount Rinjani when the earthquake hit us. We were saved by San our guide which is part of www.hallotrekker.com .
Relationship to to the party:
We have a short but strong relationship with the people of Hallo Trekker, we have seen their commitment in helping people (not only us, but also people in the Senaru Village) and see them as the respected party who could divide goods for the people in the village.
How the funds will be spent:
The money will be spent on rebuilding houses for the people of Senaru, since first aid medication, food and water is available. We will hold on to the funds and move the money gradually to Lombok. We will keep a strict control on the spending.
The money will be wired to the company called Hallo Trekker were we have all details from. We will distribute accordingly in close contact with Rustam.
