Lombok and Gili Earthquake Appeal

$6,556 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 9 months
Lombok and the Gilis have suffered a number of earthquakes over the last 2 weeks  leaving some  200,000 people displaced living in make shift camps. Many of them have no water, blankets, generators for the night and the food is slowly running out too. 

Not only is food and water an issue but due to these conditions many have been falling sick and there are outbreaks of contagious hepatitis reported in one camp and other injuries and illnesses that require medical Treatment.  There are newborn babies, heavenly pregnant women, elderly people and a lot of children who all need special care.

In short these people have lost everything including their loved ones. They are scared at night in the dark some staying on hills with dangerous animals around and no shelter.

We have already today been able to send money today to provide some basic needs today and tomorrow will be be taking medical  supplies to Lombok. 
We are working with the wonderful Endri Foundation and locals on Lombok to keep providing immediate daily needs.

The costs are insurmountable we are reaching for the Moon but if we reach the stars we will be happy and be bale to help a lot of people

Thank you all for your donations to date, we have been able to help many people. The next challenge is to get as many people as possible out of the camps and into temporary housing. There is a current outbreak of Malaria and with the rain coming soon, more outbreaks will arise. Please support and share. Thankyou again from the bottom of my heart

Thank you all for very kind donations. You cannot imagine how many people we have helped to date. We are however a long way short of finishing. There are still many aftershocks and earthquakes. The wet season will be upon us soon. This will cause a new set of problems including flooding in the camps and illnesses. We need to lots of tents, tarps, blankets, rice, water and medicine. Tomorrow I return to Lombok and will start helping to build Temporary Accommodation. We need to concentrate on the poor, the elderly, the sick and new born babies. Please continue to donate no matter how small the donation.

This is a Rumah Terpal…a tarp house which is built in one day, can house a family of 6, and costs less than (3,400,000IDR) for all supplies and building costs.

The main focus of our efforts is on the future and rebuilding the lives and the spirits of the people of Lombok. The LostBoys, researched and constructed a semi-permanent housing option made of bamboo poles and plastic tarps.
These houses will be a secure, dry, comfortable semi-permanent shelter, The houses are in their villages; to encourage them to be close to their property and be able to focus on rebuilding for the future.
This will pour money back into the local economy and allow the locals to help themselves and their neighbours.
Please help by buying a home for a family and impact their world…donate a home. If you can’t afford to donate an entire home, please remember that every little bit helps, as a community we can make a HUGE difference.
