Since the onset of the earthquakes started 29th July 18, ALPA-S has conducted 3 relief missions sending about 5,000 blankets, tents and tarpaulins.
We are glad to be back in Lombok again, this time helping more than 400 students, a lot of schools were devastated like SD3 Malaka...
Children had to study in temporary shelters or in classroom made of thin plywood with no table and chair. We arrived in their examination week, this was how they take their exams
With the help of SM Lombok, we managed to find 448 sets of books, writing pads and stationery for 2 schools.
This was SD3 Malaka, located in a village near the epic centre, north eastern coast of Lombok
We were lucky to be able to find 175 small foldable writing desks (what the little girl was holding) so that the students could have a personal table to take their exam. The mini desk only arrived the night before the distribution.
In the second morning, we took a 3 hr ride to Sembalun Bumbung, a village hard hit at the base camp of Mount Rinjani, Lombok's famous volcano.
There are still another 2 schools that were designated for distribution but we ran out of stationery. Hopefully, we could come back again in the near future.
Coming up Soon ....
