A Huge Thank You for Your Support Raising Emergency Funds for Lombok
We far exceeded our fundraising expectations thanks to your generosity! The total raised through on and offline donations now stands at an impressive US$11,673. We have been overwhelmed by the support shown from our partners, colleagues and members of the community. Your donations have made an immediate positive impact on the ground in Lombok, with emergency aid provided to those most in need.
With the funds raised we have been able to purchase:
Eight portable generators, eight water pumps; water filters; hoses; eight large water storage tanks and a good amount of tarpaulin.
Alongside our partner TUGU Hotels, we have worked around the clock to transport emergency equipment using Destination Asia vans. The first generators were purchased on 9 August, with our teams delivering them in Lombok into the early hours of Sunday 12 August.
Thanks to your donations, we were able to set up four fully operational emergency stations in Lombok. Plans are in place to make delivery of a further eight water tanks, four generators, four water pumps plus extra hoses and water filters on Wednesday 15. As a long standing member of the community and with so many colleagues, friends and family affected by the earthquake, we would once again like to thank everyone for their generous support.
