On the Aug 19, 2018 , the day the world remembers as World Humanitarian Day, series of 7.0 and 6.5 Richter scale hit Lombok, including many 5.0 Richter scales.

Panic, fear, confusion looks over the island, and especially the hospital in Mataram, Lombok. Patients from ICU ward were evacuated to tents, including 2 big tents HOPE worldwide provided to support the hospital.

Relief team went to calm down the patients and comfort them. As hundreds of patients were still being cared for after the July 29th and Aug 5th deadly earthquakes.

HOPE worldwide has distributed 7.5 tons of emergency supplies (tents, blankets, food, clothes, etc) so far. We are rushing for more help to Lombok as well as supporting the Children Center in Mataram in caring the patients and children at the main hospital of Lombok.
