Lombok family relief

I am helping my good friend Maria Jacques to support  16 families  to rebuild their lives after the devastating earthquakes in Lombok & the gilli islands.
On 5 August a devastating magnitude 7 earthquake hit Lombok and the Gili Isles. It damaged Maria's 5 shops and Kais Beach House . All remain closed, The staff miraculously were not injured. The Gili Isles themselves are currently pretty much deserted, with almost all businesses closed for now. Only one fast boat is going between Bali and Bangsal Lombok. Her main focus at the this time is her 16 staff, 7 of whom have lost their home and everything in it . The main picture is of Umar the handyman's house, He escaped with a baby, a 7 year old and his wife ! All her staff have encountered some kind of damage to their home and lost family members. Maria wants to keep all the staff and give them a full wage as well as help them rebuild their lives. Many of them support their whole family from their wage and they simply cannot survive without it. As she has no income from the shops or the house, she needs help to do this. Please help her to help them We have sourced inflatable beds for 15$ each or a family tent for 120 $ which will help the staff to survive the upcoming rainy season. Any money donated with go 100% directly to staff and their needs and will help them immensely to get through this terrible time . Please give what you can ... a little goes a long long way!
