Lots of people also lose their jobs and bussines because of the damage in Gili Island and Rinjani. Two of the most touristic areas in Lombok.
Please if you can make time to donate some money to Victor Cidomo & friends that would be great.
We are a big group of people, foreigns and locals, that we have been living in Gili Islands and in South Lombok for many years and we feel Lombok like home.
Our heart is broken seeing how many local people is calling us for help. We are working as a huge team, where each of us have important roll. From giving and collecting money, buying food, water and medical supplies (some of them start to be hard to find in Lombok like shelters), receiving calls from people asking help and discovering the location where to go, organizing trucks for deliveries, donations and stock accounting and finally find the people who needed most. Some roads have difficult access and only motorbike can access there.
Lombok people need all of us!! Please donate even if its a small amount!!!
