Lombok Earthquake Response
UPDATE: 07 Sept 2018
Relief supplies are on their way!
BGR International, along with Singapore partners, is sending blankets, T-shirts, water filters, and medical supplies to victims of the recent earthquakes in Lombok, Indonesia.
30 July 2018
On 29 July, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok, causing 16 deaths and damaging several communities. BGR International responded quickly, working with a Singaporean response team to assess needs; however, a second earthquake, measuring at a magnitude of 7.0, struck the same vicinity on 5 August. Thankfully, neither the team members nor their local partners sustained any injuries; they are now planning to continue their relief efforts in the aftermath of both disasters. Workers also will conduct supplementary assessments as a result of the second quake, and BGR International will respond as needed.
Your gifts to BGRI will be a vital part of the response!
