Destination Asia appeals for donations to help Lombok quake victims

Destination Asia met its US$5,000 target in 24 hours, but is continuing to accept donations for more emergency supplies

Destination Asia is collecting funds to set up emergency stations for those affected by the earthquake that struck Lombok on August 5.

The death toll of the quake has climbed to over 300, as a 6.2-magnitude aftershock rocked the island yesterday.

Destination Asia met its US$5,000 target in 24 hours, but is continuing to accept donations for more emergency supplies

Each costing US$2,500 to set up, emergency stations comprise generators, water pumps, water filters, hoses, water storage tanks, tarpaulins, mats and tents, according to a statement from the DMC.

Proceeds will go directly to providing emergency support for those most in need on Lombok, Destination Asia said.

Contributions can be made here. The donation page will close Monday, August 13, 23.59 (UTC).

Destination Asia Indonesia staff are already working on the ground both with other local DMCs and partners to purchase and transport emergency supplies.
