CSR for Lombok
News of the grief happens again in Indonesia. A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the Indonesian islands of Lombok and Bali on August 5th, 2018, killing more than 100 people, and leaving at least 20,000 homeless. The earthquake happened repeatedly, at least recorded at BMKG. The most severe damage has been in North Lombok. Rescue efforts are continuing, and at least two people have already been pulled from the rubble according to the national search and rescue agency. Search and rescue efforts are continuing.
Hundreds of tourists remain stranded on the island and hotels were filled to capacity. No tourists were reported killed, but the earthquake was felt as far away as the neighboring island of Bali, where two people died. The quake was followed by more than a dozen aftershocks, including one Monday morning that registered a magnitude of 5.4.
PT Tokyu Property Management Indonesia participates to ease the burden by distributing donations through the Indonesian Red Cross account. Hopefully, this support can help efforts to deal with earthquake victims. Save for Lombok.
