A New Hope for Senaru Hamlet Lombok Earthquake survivor
My Birthday was on 12 August and my wishes for this year Birthday is to help raised a donation for Horizon Senaru and Senaru Hamlet Villages to rebuild their home.
Last month 10 to 17 July 2018, I went to Lombok with 6 of my friends to climb Mountain Rinjani and sightseeing Lombok. We book a tour with Horizon Senaru after survey most of the tour operators for Mountain Rinjani . Horizon Senaru own by Mohammad Yusuf Lalu and it get very good review from past visitor that taken his tour before. Yusuf did help us a lot by planning a good iternary for us to see most of Rinjani and Lombok with a very reasonable fees. Rus, our tour guides to Mountain Rinjani was very nice, friendly and helpful as well as all the porters that went with us. That was really a good experience for all of us, a wonderful vacations.
Less than two week after we come back, we get a news that Lombok have terrible earthquakes . We were all glad that Yusuf, Rus ,porters and their families are safe. Yusuf did inform us that they help to distribute the water to neighbours as the source of water is broken. Their source of water from Sendeng Gila waterfall/ Tiu Kelep waterfall which was very dangerous during this time as the earth is not stable and might shakes anytime. They urgently need tents, clean water, canned foods, logistics etc etc. I suggested to Yusuf why not we make a fundraising and he help to control the funds to those that needed there since he knows everyone in that village. He say ok and he would like to help but doesn’t know where to start. That why I started this fundraising and all the fund will directly send to Yusuf bank account and he will manage the fund wisely.

There is around 250 family at Senaru Hamlet Village which was near Mountain Rinjani. Most of them working as a porter for tourists to carry things up and down from the mountains, tour guides , some run restaurants or small stalls and also there quite a number of homestay business that have interconnection with the mountains. This village is another stopping point for those that wanted to climb the mountains beside Sembalun. Summary is that most of them depend on the mountain for livelihood. Earthquakes which have happen end of July 2018 was devastating yet they still manage to pull through. Unluckily, Fate was trying their patience again. Can you Imagine some of them still haven’t recover from the previous Earthquakes nightmares , then it happen again few days ago. Some of the Women feel panic and started to cried, the children are feeling terrified, some of them still in a disbelief shock that this could happen to them. But reality is harsh and it does happen, Senaru people are still in a state of shock as the earthquakes continue to haunt them. To makes things worse, their beloved house collapse due to the quakes. We can’t help them to recover emotionally but we can help them to ease some of their burden by helping them to rebuild their home. Hereby I urged all Good Samaritan to help viral this post and donate any amount even just a little to help them rebuild their home. A place called home where they can stay. Thank you
