Lombok and Gili Islands Earthquake

£4,100 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 107 people in 12 months
Dear Friends and Family.

My name is Radek, I am one of the owners of Mowie's, and  Gili Air has been my home for almost 5  years.

It is hard to believe that only a few days ago we were collecting donations for the victims of the first earthquake in Lombok, and soon after that on the 5th of August we became the victims of another huge earthquake. It is hard to describe in words what happened here and how scared everyone was. The power went off on the whole island, we all gathered on fields in desperate search for safety, waiting anxiously for news regarding potential tsunami threats.

After a rough night, all tourists started fleeing the island in panic from early morning but most of us leaving here, stayed, supporting each other.
All our staff members left to Lombok in fear for their families, only to find out that their villages and homes have been completely destroyed.

They have no way to help and rebuild their lives as gilis have been evacuated, all businesses shut which means they all lost the only source of income and with thousands needing help and shelter they are all hopelessly waiting for a miracle.

But we can all get together and help to rebuild their lives and confidence in humanity.

We have created this campaign to raise funds directly for our employees and their families in Gili Air and Lombok. The funds collected will be used to buy food, water, blankets, first aid kits, medicine and other necessities required to survive.

There will be full transparency in terms of the use of the allocated funds, these funds will not be used for any commercial or corporate benefit.

The allocation and withdrawal of the funds will be managed by the owners of Mowies and all donors will be able to view the distribution of funds through the follow up updates. 

So please donate and remember that even a small amount will make a huge difference collectively.

So let's rebuild their future together!

Thank you for your support !!

Dear Friends,
We would love to assure you that your continuous donations are reaching the ones in need in Lombok. Today our incredible team purchased more fresh food, water, medicine, blankets and baby supplies for our dear staff and their families affected by this tragedy. They spent all day traveling to various location and making sure everyone who needs help, has been taken care of. It is incredible to see the smile on everyone faces in spite of what has happened.
On a positive note, the island is coming back to life faster than anyone expected. Another refreshing news is that the fast boats will start running from tomorrow to Bangsal Harbour, the local shops slowly reopening and you can even spot cidomo (horse carriages) in the Gili Air Harbour. The messages of support we receive every day from around the world are so encouraging and makes us stronger every day. Thank you all so much!!!

Dear friends,

First of all we would like to thank everyone for generous donations. Words can't describe how grateful we all are for your help. Today our guys Ali ,Arief ,Bages, Grace,Jaka just to name a few ,have been working extremely hard to visit Mowies team and their families in affected areas and has managed to organise first aid kits, food, water, clothes and sleeping mats. This was only the first round of supplies we have delivered, and we are determined to keep providing the essentials to everyone until the conditions improve. We all hope that the current situation will stabilize soon and once the affected areas are deemed safe, we can start helping them to rebuild their homes.

We know that this process will take time and a lot of effort so we ask you to share this message and try to get as many people as possible to support this action and rebuild the lives of this beautiful community.

On a positive note, we are thrilled to share that the power has been restored in Gili Air and a lot of efforts are being made to get the island up and running.

Thank you for your support !!
