Hello, my name is Gana, I work as a tour guide and surfing instructor in Lombok Indonesia. I live with my wife and daughter, younger brother and my elderly parents. I am the sole breadwinner
Recently there were 3 earthquakes, and because of that, my house was destroyed and we had to ask our friends for money to build my family a new house. Thankfully there was nobody in the house when it collapsed but we lost everything inside. Our cooking equipment, our fridge, our TV, everything.
Our new house is still not completely built yet, but we now have shelter over our heads.
However, because there are no tourists coming to Lombok now, I have no income and cannot provide for my family, food is scarce. The government gave us some food like rice and mineral water when the earthquakes hit our village. But it’s all gone now.
My mother was also injured in the first earthquake, and we have not had the money to send her to the doctor or hospital. She needs help urgently. In Lombok, the hospitals only treat you if you can pay.
We need food, we need to rebuild our house, and we need medical care.
Please help us.
