New stretch target

Any extra money will go to the Peduli Anak Foundation in Lombok. An institution that supports the lives of disadvantaged children in Lombok

Simon Liddiard came to Gili Trawangan in 1991 and has established 3 large businesses on the Gili Trawangan. 

Blue Marlin, Trawangan Dive and Kelapa Luxury Villas. 

Over 300 local staff and their families depend upon these businesses to support their families. Most of whom have now lost their homes in the terrible earthquake that has devastated both Gili Trawangan and Lombok.

Whilst we can rebuild the physical damage to our business and keep the staff employed we need help to give assistance and accommodation that they desparately need.

The money raised will go directly from us to the people that need it most.  In restoring the island to the place that many of you know and love. If you have enjoyed a holiday at any of our resorts please think of these people now.  They need you.  Any amount of money will help to fix this horrific situation that they are in.

Since leaving Gili Trawangan I have heard amazing stories of local people allowing westerners to sleep in their tents and help them even though they themselves were destitute and scared. Please help!
