LOMBOK FUNDRAISER UPDATE:
We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to our Lombok earthquake appeal. Thanks to your outstanding generosity, we managed to double our initial target, raising £400 for the earthquake victims. Talim extends his gratitude and has already used some of the funds to set up a children’s trauma healing centre (photos included).
For anyone who didn’t get around to donating, but wanted to, we’re keeping the campaign open for the next few months. Click here to donate or find out more. Large parts of the island have suffered extensive damage, with property destruction above 80% for some villages, so the road to recovery will be long. Future donations will be used to continue supporting the worst affected communities as they rebuild and move forward.
