 Hotel Seri Resort owners report 

 Gili Meno during the magnitude 6.9 earthquake in Lombok on August 5th. It was such a traumatic experience,

but we are so grateful that our family, our partner Aki and his wife, our managers and staff and all our 100 guests were unharmed,

and it was incredible to see the support everyone gave each other. Also 10 of our staff stayed behind to support us and we are so thankful to them.

After 2 days our and we finally managed to get our group and others evacuated from the Gilis thanks to the incredible generosity of Patagonia Boat coming to recusing us .

Sadly there have been frequent and strong aftershocks with the latest 6.1 yesterday. It has resulted in masive devestation, with hundreds of deaths,

countless injuries, over 50,000 people are homeless urgent supplies are desperately needed. We have been busy the past few days sending basic supplies

such as drinking water, rice, noddles etc to vicitms in Lombok and Gili Meno after the tragic earthquake a few days ago.

Our partner Aki Hiraga is on site in the gili islands to ensure all items donated and sent are received and distributed in Lombok and given to the people who need it most.

Of course we will provide complete transparency, reciepts, bank records and photos.

We are looking for urgent donations to firstly buy immediate needs until the power is restored and aid is set up: 
*Drinking Water 
*Food - cooking oil instant noodles, rice, etc
*Camping supplies tents, blankets, tarps

We will also help rebuild homes that have been destroyed. 
To rebuild one 2 bedroom home will costs about CAN 2,500. I was not going to post photos of the destruction

but I think it is necessary to post one to really see what they are facing.

We are raising money for the Lombok locals who are in desperate need for all the basics such as water ,rice and baby food and shelter

Thanks to all of you that have contacted me and my family with concern and with best wishes. And for the offers to help - and questions about ways to do this...

Yes, buildings and businesses have been lost - we're one of many facing this loss. And - more tragically - l

ives have been lost. But it goes further than this when thinking of the future... these businesses on GT

that have been lost following this last big quake, employed thousands of staff from the island and from Lombok.

These amazing staff who looked after our businesses and looked after so many of you who have holidayed on GT are now without a job

, and many have returned home to Lombok to find they are totally homeless, and with fewer family members left ?

We personally will try to continue to pay our staff for as long as we can to give them a chance to find alternative employment but

effectively they have lost their livelihood. Many of them live in the northern villages of Lombok which have been totally flattened.

They have lost their homes, their possessions, and their livelihood. Our management staff are now going to buy food and water

to take to our staff in Tanjung who have absolutely nothing and to buy tarpaulins so they have some shelter. And that's only one village.

And that's just our staff... And we are only one of hundreds of businesses affected...

It is not their fault they are without jobs or homes, and we will certainly help all our staff. But many smaller businesses are not in

the financial position to do this and so all help to send food and supplies to an island without water and electricity, and to families without homes, is much appreciated.

All donations, and it really doesn't matter how small, will go to those suffering in their non-existent villages, without work,

and without a livelihood. For those of you who have stayed with us and feel the same way we do about our amazing staff please email me or contact me through PM

. For those wanting to help the situation in general I can put you onto organisations in Bali who have set up help centres.

Please don't think you have to give anything - it is not an obligation - but my thanks to those of you that have already rung asking to where you can donate,

and to those that have already sent money to my mum, and hence this email.

Mother Nature sure seems intent on reminding us that we are just little human specks of dust in relation to her immense power!!
