On Sunday, August 5th an earthquake with a 7.0 magnitude devastated the island of Lombok. In a time span of 3 weeks, multiple earthquakes and heavy aftershocks kept hitting the island including six earthquakes on one day. We are very blessed and grateful that all children and staff at Peduli Anak are safe and unharmed, but the destruction at our shelter is enormous. We are now facing the extremely challenging task of rebuilding from the ground up.
We share donated goods, food and water as much as possible with villages nearby and up north. The epicenter of most of the earthquakes can be found in the north of Lombok and we visit remote villages there regularly as many are in dire need of help.
The earthquakes in Lombok seem to be never-ending, but the optimistic nature of the children; their resilience and drive keep us focused on fighting for their home and future. We want to thank everyone who has come to our aid and are still standing up to help us. It is heartwarming for us all.
