WHAT'S THE ORIGINAL $1,500 FUNDRAISING FOR?
Sokong 1 Public Elementary School (SDN 1 Sokong) has not even recovered 100% yet from the two deadly earthquakes that shook Lombok's island in Indonesia in July and August 2018; now, they must face a lack of funding to bring back students to school during COVID-19.
The record shows 606 schools were destroyed by earthquakes, including Sokong 1 Public Elementary School.
Last year, the school received funding from the local government and the Ministry of Education and Culture to build four new classrooms and a teacher lounge. However, the school still experiences a lack of funding to build other facilities.
The original fundraising aims to raise $1500, and the donation went to :
URGENT FUND - To provide the supplies for pandemic back-to-school including :
DISASTER FUND - To help rebuild the rest of the school facilities after the 2018 Earthquake.
