Gili & Lombok Earthquake appeal

£5,975 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 118 people in 1 month
The people of Lombok and the Gili islands, our staff and their families have been greatly affected by a 6.9 magnitude earthquake and do need emergency help.

We are the owners of a small family hotel Mahamaya Gili Meno www.facebook.com/MAHAMAYAGiliMeno and we are asking for immediate help for the people who have lost their homes and their loved ones. We would like people to understand that this is a state of emergency and our immediate focus is not our hotel but actual crisis management and providing emergency aid to our staff, their families and the people  in the Lombok community who have been affected.  Many local people and members of our staff have and lost their homes and loved ones and been left with nothing.

We are working alongside a local charity Lombok's Forgotten Children to provide emergency relief to the people of Lombok and the Gili islands. We are trying to help as thousands have people have been left with no power, water, food or shelter.

Last week after the first earthquake we held a fundraiser at the hotel and raised vital funds but the situation is now a state of emergency with thousands of people injured and displaced. We have purchased a supply of emergency tents to provide emergency shelter for the families of our staff and the people of Lombok. We have sent emergency aid to our staff in their villages who don’t have the basics of food and water. We will continue with this Emergency Aid in the coming days. In light of this and as so many kind guests and friends have asked how they can help, we have decided to set up our own crowdfunder.

Please donate if you can and these funds will go directly to the people that need help. The funds will go to David Roberts my brother and owner of Mahamaya hotel as he is on the ground in Indonesia.  We will organise emergency supplies directly and we will deliver supplies with our team directly to the affected areas so these funds will go directly to the people. 

Looking forward, we will focus more on rebuilding the homes of families in our local community. We will need continued support with this to provide the basics for a home including building materials, labour, fridges, clothes and other basic needs.

£5 can provide a family water for 1 day

£10 can provide a family food for 1 day

£20 can provide torches and batteries for 1 family

£35 can provide a tent for 5 people or one small family

£170 can provide a tent for 20 people or one extended family

£3000 can help to rebuild a simple house and provide permanent shelter for a family.

UPDATE: 8 August 2018
Thanks you to everyone who has donated we are overwhelmed by the response. Today in very difficult access conditions we delivered 1 ton of rice and 200 gallons of mineral water to some remote villages that had received no help. Tomorrow we will continue with your help. You did this. Thank you. ❤️

One week has passed since the latest in a series of huge earthquakes that have devastated parts of North Lombok. Please be assured that we are continuing our emergency response efforts ourselves with our Gili Meno community and also in the field with Lombok's Forgotten Children Charity. Alongside the emergency relief food supplies, medical supplies, doctors, electricity generators and tents for families we have also provided many huge shelter tents that are being used as field hospitals, community centres and safe spaces for the children. The children of North Lombok would like to say thank you which is both heart-breaking and heart-warming. www.facebook.com/endri.susanto2/videos/2166559556718541/?t=3 Please continue to share and help us reach our target.

Our team have continued their action and emergency response. We have provided more emergency supplies of food and water to our local community in Gili Meno. We have also provided a supply of electricity generators to some villages that still do not have a power supply. A great achievement from our medics and was providing emergency medical assistance to a lady in a remote Lombok village and hopefully saving a life. Our management team are beginning to mobilise their colleagues and motivate the community to rebuild their lives. We do still need your help to do this so please continue to donate and share this post to spread the word and provide assistance to rebuild houses.

Today alongside the basics, we were able to distribute tents and generators to the villages. So tonight they have decent shelter and light instead of fear. There were many messages of thanks and also some found the ability to smile again. Today we also distributed basic supplies and water to our immediate community on Gili Meno. It's those simple things that you have provided. We are now starting to look forward and require your help with the positive promotion of Lombok and with your continued support, the reopening of hotels and the rebuilding of homes.

Today there were some smiles and some happy tears. Our owner Mr. David and the Mahamaya management team delivered more emergency supplies to those in need. They also coordinated a team of doctors and medical supplies alongside Pak Endri and our partner charity Lombok's Forgotten Children to those needing medical attention. And our incredible HR Manager Lila even gave candy to the kids and messages of support to those that need to know that people care about them.
Please keep donating and keep sharing.
