On August 5th, several earthquakes, including the most deadly one of magnitude 7, stroke north of Lombok. One of the main touristic island of Indonesia, the neighbour of Bali, has been hit by a natural catastrophe that caused a lot of suffering and pain to the local population.
Despite their own loss in Gili Trawangan and Gili Meno, the company Bali Management Villas (one of BookingSync clients), has made us proud! They have personally witnessed what a natural disaster can bring to the residents there and decided to take action.
Touched by the gentleness and kindness of the locals, and seeing what Lombok has given them through the 9 years the company has been running in Indonesia, now it’s time to give back, show the people gratitude and give help to those affected by this tragedy in an efficient way.
As the island has been struck by second earthquake (and many aftershocks), the death toll has been increased to above 500.
Bali Management Villas (BookingSync Indonesia main user) have organized boats from their usual transportation providers and are now collecting supplies to donate goods to those in need, working closely to help teams on site.
What to bring? How the money will be spent? Mainly on basic supplies such as food, water, masks, clothes and 1st aid medicines.
Indonesia is the first region of the world that benefit and also suffers from tourism in many different ways, we (the collectivity), need to help Lombok population getting back on their feet so people from the industry and their family can go back to a decent life.
