Lombok is one of the 17,000+ islands located in Indonesia and is one island to the east of Bali, where we also work. Lombok is one of the most densely populated Muslim areas in the world. In August 2018 Lombok was struck by several high magnitude earthquakes wreaking devastation all throughout the isolated villages located in the northwest corridor of the island. Mission: Hope stepped in to help with the relief and long-term recovery efforts. Many members of our staff in Bali are trained to respond to disasters like these and went to serve these villages in Lombok. We were able to help over 1,200 families with clean water, food, hygiene kits, shelter, medical care, and more. Our work in Lombok shifted from relief to our long-term sustainable transformation model in January 2019.
