Earthquake Indonesia

On 5 August 2018, a destructive and shallow Mw 6.9 (7.0 on Richter scale) earthquake struck the island of Lombok, Indonesia. It was the main shock following its foreshock, a nearby Mw 6.4 earthquake on 29 July.

The epicentre was located inland, near Loloan Village in North Lombok Regency. As its rupture spread to the north and reached the sea, tsunami warnings were generated.

Severe shaking was reported throughout the entire island of Lombok and Gili Islands while strong shaking was reported in the neighboring islands of Bali and Sumbawa.

Widespread damage was reported both in Lombok and the damage in Gili Trawangan is at a critical point.


The death toll continues to rise and the extent of damage cannot even be quantified at this point.

There has been further serious tremors and earthquakes which have resulted in widespread panic on Gili Trawangan and evacuations ordered.

Our best friends Fiona & Ondrej  have lived and worked out on Gili Trawangan for 6 years and had built a life for themselves and have afforded many local staff job opportunities of late.

This has been a truly terrifying experience for them and their closest friends and only this morning have they decided it is the only option to evacuate to Bali mainland.

Their home is severely damaged not to mention the damage and heartache across the island with loss of life and businesses and homes destroyed.

We are hoping to raise a few bob to get them back on their feet with the essentials so then they can continue to help others.

Gili Trawangan needs homes repaired so people like Fiona and Ondrej can live back here.
Without the businesses open and repaired there will be limited tourists therefore the impact on locals and the island itself is unthinkable.

Gili Trawangan has a piece of our heart and if you can help in the smallest way will help get our two best friends into safety for now and afford them the opportunity to discuss their next move.

Everything will be OK in the end, If it's not OK, it's not the end.31953676_1533646862134624_r.jpeg31953676_1533646882694534_r.jpeg31953676_1533646895713161_r.jpeg31953676_153364691320450_r.jpeg31953676_1533646933415712_r.jpeg

Unfortunately the same region has been hit with further strong earthquakes, the strongest being a 6.9 magnitude yesterday with multiple after shocks felt.

All efforts are continuing with supplies still coming from Bali to Lombok and the repairing of Gili T on-going. These further earthquakes will see further heartache across the region and every penny helps get staff and affected families the care they so desperately need!

Please continue to share these posts and thank you so much for donations so far!

Fi & Oj, stay safe you absolute legends. x

All, Fee & OJ are back on Gili T. I have attached a video from Gili T, it is sadly like a ghost town with many dive resort staff working together to achieve water and power resolutions and attempting to restore the island. Their is on-going work to get continued supplies to Lombok from Bali. The sooner Gili T is back on its feet the better, locals can return to work and support their families in rebuilding their lives. Thank you for the support so far. Much love, Dionne & Katie
