We Need Your Help

IDEP Foundation will assist refugees residing in the Bayan District, North Lombok (IDEP Foundation has assisted the area since 2015). People in North Lombok district, especially Bayan District, have evacuated to open areas and because of the continuing aftershocks the residents prefer to stay outdoors.

Who Will We Help?

The people of Senaru Subdistrict, especially those in the vicinity of Bayan, are the most affected areas with the highest number of casualties. Many villages in this region lost access to the road because they were damaged so it has been difficult to reach aid or communicate.

What Can We Help?

IDEP Foundation will assist 3 evacuation posts by distributing Family Buckets for each family in the evacuation camp. Please refer to information related to IDEP's Family Bucket which is the most efficient systematic provision of assistance during IDEP's experience in carrying out the emergency response below:

Assistance will be channeled directly through our field staff in Mataram who will collect and purchase all requirements, and provide directly to IDEP assisted posts.
