The people of Pesinggahan Medewi need your help. Medewi, a small fishing village in West Bali, Indonesia of roughly 2,400 people relies heavily on its tourism community as a means to provide food for their families. As of April 1st, 2020 Medewi is under quarantine which means there are no tourists or outsiders allowed to enter our community. All beaches, hotels, homestays, restaurants are now closed, which means a large portion of the local community has no way of making an income.  

This campaign, initiated by Banzer Medewi and Medewi Boardriders is meant to raise funds to supply our community with their basic needs and safety such as masks, food, soap etc as a lot of people can't afford these basic items now as they have no income. 

The government doesn't have the means to provide enough financial assistance to people in our community, which is why we are asking for help from all the people who have surfed Medewi, all the people who have fell in love with this unique community, everyone who understands how kind the people in our community are - please they need your help now during these difficult times. If you've stayed here or even just surfed here you know how special this place is and how little $ the locals need to survive. A few dollars goes a long way, so we ask you to please donate whatever you can. The Gofundme platform's fee is 5% from each donation on top of a payment processor fee of 2.9% + $0.30 per donation to give you an idea of what will be taken from each donation. We ask that you give whatever you can, as every dollar helps tremendously! 

We understand it's a difficult time for people all over the world so we want to thank you in advance for your help and kindness in supporting this one-of-a-kind community! We hope Medewi will open up in the near future once it's safe but until then we are working hard to keep the locals safe with masks and food.
