One month ago, the Indonesian islands of Lombok, Gili and Bali suffered catastrophic damage from the 7.0 Richter scale earthquake. There is now an urgent need for essential supplies and support to reach those most affected by this devastation.

My name is Isrina Asmi, and Gili Trawangan has been my home for more than 10 years.
Together with my support team, we are raising funds to help purchase / transport / deliver essential basic supplies and medicines to villages that are in dire need of support. The situation is critical, and we are grateful for all of the support we can get. Our friends and their families in Lombok have had their villages destroyed overnight, and we are now prioritising efforts to help them.

We are currently collecting funds for buying food/water/blankets/formula milk/tarpaulins/medicines and personally delivering them to these villlages. We are still prioritizing basic need items for survival first, and then we will start helping these communities with all aspects of the rebuilding process.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity of spirit in this moment of great need. No amount is too small and every penny is used directly to deliver essential services. "Individually we are small drops, but together we are the ocean."

Also, if you prefer to donate directly into our Indonesian bank account, you are welcome to do so too by emailing at puilin_n@hotmail.com so we can track your donations.

Bank account name: Yayasan Anak Bumi Damai
Account No: 2064 007 439

One month update

Dear all, thank you very much for all the kind support that has been shown. Its already been one month since the devastating earthquake, and we want to say a big thank you on behalf of all the people of Lombok whom your contribution has reached.

In the last few weeks, we have procured and delivered tarpaulins, tents, blankets, water filters, rice, food, clothes, medical supplies, and have revisited locations that we have been to before, to ensure that they are coping well. We have also received a lot of donation supplies flown over from Bogor, which we are at this moment coordinating the distribution to Lombok Timur.

Our people are still living in tents and there are still minor aftershocks being felt, but we are starting to see people moving forward - clearing the rubble, starting to reconstruct simple structures etc.

Your contribution has helped to provide the basic needs for their survival in these trying times, and we are extremely grateful. Moving forward, whatever extra monies raised, will be to aid in the rebuilding process.

Thank you very much once again!

Dear all,

Thank you so much for helping to donate and share! Here's what we have been doing, and please bear with us as we take some time to update the expenses sheet. Our On-ground team had to go through another 6.2 earthquake yesterday afternoon, which brought even more buildings to pieces. The casualties are rising, and relief efforts are getting harder. Our team is safe and they are not stopping their efforts because they know that there are many more in dire need of help. Please continue sharing and lets give hope.

Puilin & the whole team

Hi all, this is Puilin here from Malaysia. Rina's partner in Gili Bumblebee Montessori. Thank you everyone for all the donations regardless big or small. We want to keep everyone updated on where their money is going to, as we know that at this moment there are some sceptical about fundraising and it is totally understandable, as there are scams happening. But we need your help to keep the awareness up, and to rally as many people as you can to help our efforts. We are a small team, but with your efforts, we can make a huge difference.

Here's the support team and what we are doing now:
1) Rina (coordinating logistics / identifying locations that needs urgent supplies)
2) Dian (coordinating supplies purchase / delivery / keeping track of the resources)
3) Puilin (coordinating donations / supplies / managing updates)
4) Core On-ground team (Leo / Nana / Putri / Hatimah)
5) The rest of the support team

We are taking out IDR 65,000,000 today to purchase essential basic needs items for the following locations. (We are starting from locations / regions where we know is in need of help):

1. Posko Tebango Bolot, Kec. Pemenang. Klu

2. Posko Karang Langu 001. Karang Panasan, Tanjung. Klu

3. Posko no. 8. Dusun Batu Ampar, Desa Sokong, Kec. Tanjung. Klu

4. Posko Trengan Lauk, Pemenang Timur. Klu

5. Posko dekat SMKN 1 Tanjung

6. Posko Dasan Lontar, Dusun Teluk Kombal, Pemenang. Klu

7. Hassan’s village - Dusun Selebung 1 dan 2 kec. Batukliang. Kab. Lombok Tengah

The other names that we still try to get :
8. Indra and Rhonny’s village
9. Teluk kombal
10. Jul’s and Asmi’s villages

These villages are all villages that we have staff's whose families and their whole neighbourhood have been totally destroyed. Basic needs of food and water and gasoline for gensets are the priority for all the residents of the villages, and we want to help as many people as we can.

More updates on the spending tracking will be uploaded so that everyone can be assured that their money is going to a good cause.

Thanks for helping and this is only the beginning .... we still need way more to start the rebuilding.... please continue to help....
