Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali has joined a major community fundraising and relief campaign in support of the victims of the devastating earthquakes in Lombok.

On Friday 10th August, these donations - including 10 tons of rice, thousands of packs of instant noodles, blankets, baby essentials, medical equipment and other vital supplies - were delivered across the Lombok Strait to the worst-hit areas, mainly in North Lombok Regency. The group also mobilised medical personnel from Dr Romy Associates.

In total, Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali and its owning company, PT Summarecon Agung, raised IDR65,000,000 (approximatey US$5000), while Eka Jaya Fast Boat donated IDR300,000,000 (US$20,000) and PT Pramana Agung raised IDR13,000,000 (US$ 1000).

"We are very concerned about the impact of this incident. The devastation was terrible and so it's vital that we get aid and medical supplies to the people who need it most, as quickly as possible. I would like to thank everyone for their generous support but there is still a lot of work to do," said I Ketut Sugita, head of the Bali Tourism Society Cares for Lombok team.

I Wayan Suwastana, Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali's Director of Sales & Marketing, who was born in North Lombok, is one of the volunteers. "Everyone in Bali feels a deep sense of sorrow and wants to help our brothers and sisters in Lombok, who have been so terribly impacted by this disaster. I am proud to see so many organisations and individuals supporting this relief effort. By working together, we can help to ease people's suffering."

Horst Walther-Jones, General Manager of the Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali, added; "It's truly heart-breaking to see what happened in Lombok. So many lives and homes have been destroyed. By joining this relief effort we want to show the people of Lombok that they are not alone, and that Bali stands shoulder to shoulder with them."

Bali Tourism Society Cares for Lombok was established after the initial 6.4-magnitude struck the eastern part of Lombok on 29th July, and was strengthened after the catastrophic 7.0 quake hit the north of the island on 5th August. Aid and supplies will be directed to all parts of Lombok affected by these disasters.
