I'm fundraising to make a difference for Indonesian communities impacted by the global pandemic!
As the owners of The Lembongan Traveller we feel compelled to rally our community of loyal supporters to help assist the families on Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. With tourism and the local economy being brought to a stand still due to COVID-19, the locals have been severely impacted with wide spread loss of jobs & income.
During this time of adversity, the people of Lembongan have reverted to their traditional means of subsistence by fishing and growing a limited range of fruit and vegetables, most of which is still imported from neighbouring islands.
This fundraiser is aimed to reach as many families as possible by supplying rice, noodles and oil which makes up an integral part of their daily staples. We also aim to make contributions to BCF educational initiatives on Lembongan.
We understand that COVID-19 has touched everyone and we are all facing extremely difficult times, but if you can give any small amount from your family it will go a long way to helping a Lembongan family. All donations are greatly appreciated.
We have partnered with Island Protect, an affiliation of Bali Children Foundation, who we successfully worked with to administer the money we raised after the Yellow Bridge collapse to the affected families and into the community via their environmental and educational programs.
Our team of staff based on the ground in Lembongan have helped us formulate this program, will administer the purchasing of supplies and oversee the distribution process.
We thank you all in advance, on behalf of the people of Nusa Lembongan & Ceningan... they can not wait to welcome you back to their island home once travel can resume.
We can also accept payments via direct bank transfer, should you prefer this method please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
To answer a couple of very important questions about this fundraiser:
- 100% of the money received will go to buying supplies
- All money received is held by Bali Children Foundation and they will be making payment of purchases
- We will be purchasing all supplies on Lembongan to help support local warungs
Thank you again for your support of the Lembongan community.
Thank you to my Sponsors
