Challenge

The shallow but powerful earthquake struck the island of Lombok, causing widespread damage to buildings and property. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for areas in Indonesia affected by the earthquake. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like this eruption. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
