Hello everyone, we are Les Villas Ottalia Hotel Group and Avia Villa Resort, a company that has been running in Bali and Gili islands for 9 years and counting. We are here to ask you for help with our endeavor to provide necessary aid to those suffered from the recent earthquakes in Lombok.
On August 5h, an earthquake of magnitude 7 stroke north of Lombok and caused many sufferings and pains to the local population. Despite our own loss in Gili Trawangan and Gili Meno, we have personally witnessed what a natural disaster can bring to the residents there. We are a company that works closely with the locals and are deeply touched by the gentleness and kindness of heart the local have shown to us. Lombok has given us so much for the past few years and now it’s time for us to give back to the people to show our gratitude to those affected by this tragedy. We helped our guests and employees as much as we could, but the families of our employees are all suffering heavily from the earthquake. There's only so much we could do as a small company, so we need to ask you for your help to help those affected by this disaster.
We are only a small company but we are willing to put in all we have to help. We have organized boats from our usual transportation providers and are now collecting supplies to donate goods to those in need. You can either come directly to our office to drop off food, medicine, supplies, clothes blankets, and any other product, or you can simply donate on this page. We will regularly post pictures on how we spent the money. We appreciate every sign of kindness and even a few dollars would make a huge difference to the people there.
When the goods arrived in Lombok, we will be in charge to deliver them directly to the organization over there to distribute to those in need and we will not stop until everyone has received adequate help.
We have a ground crew composed of our former employees in Lombok who is in constant contact with our head office about the supplies they need urgently for example?
5. Donated Clothes
6. Medicines ( paracetamol, Iodine, rubbing alcohol etc.)
We have already sent one shipment to Lombok which can be seen in the slide show. As the island has been struck by second earthquake, the death toll has been increased to above 400 and is expected to continue the climb as many areas are yet to be accessed. We need more supplies to provide relief to the local community there.
We need everyone’s help to deliver the goods to those in need. We will regularly post and share the updates of the goods shipped to keep track of every cent we’ve spent on this cause.
