**UPDATE**

Dear friends,

we would like to thank you very much for sharing and donating. We cannot put into words how happy this makes us. As we are new to fundraising, we did not know that Paypal charges a very high fee for each donation. We want to try and make sure that all the money is used and not wasted on commissions. Therefore, if you are able, please transfer the donation directly to the following account:

Account Name: Muhamad Zakir

BANK: CIMB NIAGA SYARIAH

Account Number: 762574761500

There is almost no fee if you use "Wise" and it is very easy to create an account there. You just have to choose as a currency IDR because our account is in IDR (USD 50 = IDR 700'000).

Thank you for your kind support!

*************************************************

Dear friends, family, former guests and everyone else around us. We don't like to say it and we tried to avoid it, but we have come to the conclusion that we need your help.

Covid-19 has affected the whole world, including our small village of Gerupuk. Since March 2020, foreigners can no longer enter Indonesia, which means that the majority of people here in Gerupuk have had no income for almost 1.5 years.

1.5 years, I can't believe it myself and to be honest, I still can't believe how long this pandemic has been going on.

It's just been too long without income and there is no end in sight. People are desperate, trying to fish or sell everything to get money. It is very difficult for them, especially since the government provides little or no help.

That is why we are now launching this "gogetfunding" appeal. We want to try and provide food parcels for the next three months with basic daily necessities like rice, spices, vegetables, fruits, oil, etc. So far we have selected over 68 families who have little or no income. To carry out the project in this way, we need about 50 USD per month for a family of four.

It was difficult to select the families, but in the end we had to focus on the families that are really directly affected by the loss of tourism.

We are aware that it is difficult to feel compassion for someone you have never seen or barely know, and that Indonesia seems far away for many people and it is difficult to imagine the plight. But if you know me (or Natalie), I hope you can look past that, because many of the people here are close to our hearts and we want to help them.

Thank you very much for your support and we hope to welcome you back soon in Gerupuk for a surf or just to hang out.

Natalie & Zakir
