Lombok & Gili Islands Earthquake

£3,050 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 11 months
On Sunday 5th August, Northern and Eastern regions of Lombok and the the Gili Islands were directly hit by a 7.0 earthquake when they were already recovering from a 6.2 only a week before. Aftershocks are coming regularly. The damage to the area is extensive and a majority of locals are in temporary tented homes, with low supplies and very little help. 

Our friends Marta and Jo, can see first hand that they will need funds to help with many things from  food, water, temporary accommodation, baby milk, etc. This is even before any kind of rebuilding program can begin. There are many displaced families who have lost their income, homes and in some cases family members and friends. 

So I have set up this fund so we can send it exactly where it's needed. All funds raised will be sent directly to Marta and Jo who will help some of the hardest hit communities where their staff, family and friends are affected. 

This little corner of the world was home for us at one point in 2004/2005 and we owned property there for many years so know the area and many of the locals personally and they really need our help. So please, even if it's just £5, please donate what you can. Please ask your relatives, work colleagues and friends to donate.

Thank you

A message directly from Jo and Marta

Our staff and guests were unharmed in the earthquakes and we will be working hard over the coming months to reopen in the near future.

In the meantime we would like to thank all our guests and friends from around the world for all the kind messages we have received of concern and support and the incredible efforts of fund raising that have been started on our behalf while we have been so busy.

It has been a devastating time in Lombok and we need your help.
Our staff are all living in very difficult conditions and have all lost their homes. Our fundraising for assisting them and our community to rebuild their lives has already begun with our friends and family already sending donation and we are now reaching out to all our past and future guests to assist with providing our staff and community financial support.

If you would like to donate to this cause please contribute, any amount would be fantastic and goes straight to our community.
Every little help will go directly to local people for food, water, basic supplies and providing a safe environment and rebuilding their lives.
