£425raised of £600 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £425 to help pay for Mellong and her baby to have their home repaired following the Lombok earthquake

    Funded on Thursday, 6th December 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Having visited Lombok around 3 or 4 years ago I was lucky enough to meet a group of fantastic people that worked in a local bar with whom I became friends with including a young girl called Mellong. We have kept in touch ever since via Facebook and was pleased to hear last year that she has since had a beautiful baby (as featured in the picture).

    However the recent earthquake in this area has all but destroyed their house and without any form of welfare state in the country it has left them SLEEPING ROUGH IN A TENT.

    It is estimated that the cost to repair the house is somewhere around £500-£700. Obviously to an Indonesian person that is a huge amount of money. As such they currently have no prospect of returning to their home and providing the baby with a safe living environment.

    There are tens of thousands of people that are homeless in this region and no one is more deserving than another. But wouldn't it be an incredible thing to ACTUALLY KNOW (I will get pictures to anyone who donates that wishes to see them!) you have changed this young families life in such a hugely positive way?

    The target seems ambitious and anything you could give would be amazing but realistically we only need around 100 people to give at least £5 to reach the target. Imagine the joy that £5 contribution will make to this family's life...we can do this!!!!

        I told my Mum and sister about your fundraiser (they don’t have fb) and they gave me money to donate more to help Mellong.


      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
