Born out of the crisis of the Mt Agung eruptions that commenced in September 2017 which caused thousands of people to flee their homes and seek refuge in nearby Amed and surrounding areas.
As the crisis continued, a band of local Balinese and Expats formed Team Action for Amed to provide much needed assistance to the evacuees.
As time progressed, we continued to raise money and donations of food, clothing, bedding, toiletries, health care , cleaning and many other items needed to make the evacuees as comfortable as possible in temporary shelters.
We have raised money to renovate and build shelters, provided water tanks to store water for every day use as well as clean drinking water, purchase Nazava water filters to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated by plastic bottles, provided transport and medical aid to those in need.
Now with all evacuees returned to their homes as the threat of eruption has declined, we continue to work within the community to aid those in need with medical support through our friends at Yayasan Solemen Indonesia, transport for patients requiring visits to Denpasar for assessment and therapy , food parcels to those families in need, sponsorship of children who would otherwise not be able to attend school, building projects and so much more.
We also collaborate with Yayasan Project Karma Indonesia to assist with the health and safety of all , and are currently supporting them logistically with the earthquake crisis in Lombok.
As of 23rd July 2018 we are now a registered yayasan ( foundation ) and we will provide assistance not just now, but well into the future in the Greater Amed area and beyond.
We are also a member of My Red Envelope, an initiative that allows businesses and travelers in Bali to give back to the charity of their choosing.
We are all for one, and one for all , we dare to care.
Thank you for your continued support!
