Wondering how to make a lombok donation details are here seminyak times gas knife


Due to the growing number of aid organisations and campaigns requiring support for the recent and widespread earthquake devastation in Lombok and the Gili Islands, the following overview was created to streamline the process of choosing a reputable and trustworthy organisation, therefore making it more likely the right support and donations will reach those who need it most. The purpose is to centralise the information regarding the ways one can help because currently information is scattered and confusing, and to organise it in such a way that you can make an informed decision. la gastronomie We are not endorsing particular organisations, nor are we liable for their actions – good or bad!

Update 8/8/18 7pm – The situation on the ground is quite hectic. Government boots finally landed today, a welcome reprieve for current organisations and victims who, for the past 3 days bravely faced the terrible and heartbreaking situation together. Assistance was provided as best possible to the thousands of victims with limited resources, no electricity or wifi and distribution of survival basics like shelter, water, food, medical and SO MUCH MORE was a desperate, sleep-deprived, indescribable effort. The government should have been clapping the moment they landed. The area has yet to be declared a natural disaster which means Lombok is not receiving international aid….and is dependent on other forms of support.

The most effective form of donation if you want to help is giving money because it’s the fuel that drives the engine; specifically, teams on the ground can execute faster and more accurately. Another option is to mix it up, such as attend a local evening fundraiser with friends, make a donation to an organisation, and make some space by donating stuff you don’t use – this can be a much more impactful and rewarding experience.
