Relief Efforts in Lombok
After the devastating earthquake in Lombok this past fall, ongoing relief efforts have managed to quell some of the aftereffects, but the reach of such a monumental natural disaster is extensive. BGR International has attempted to be a mainstay of reliable aid and resources in the area through continuing social support programs and provisions.
The various goals of these individualized programs were replenishing the community’s depleted water supply, supplying families with clean water filters, and offering free medical and counseling services. Other targets also included erecting the appropriate sterile facilities, holding trauma trainings and healing workshops, providing transitional housing opportunities, and strengthening faith communities in their outreach efforts.
These endeavors at rebuilding and supporting the affected communities in Lombok have proven successful and are empowering individuals to reclaim independence in the face of tragedy. You can help support similar relief projects at www.giving.sg/bgr-international.
