Hi this is Melati and Isabel,

A team is a team. That is what Bye Bye Plastic Bags believes in. One of our team members and supporters, Suman, a Nepalese student has cried out for help. So we help.

Now five days have passed and Bye Bye Plastic Bags was able to collect close to 10,000 USD, with special support of Rotary Canggu and Canggu Club and you through many amazing, incredible, and wonderful private donations. To ensure that everything runs smoothly Eko Riyanto, Nicola Hennigan and Roel Voorwald, three parents of the Bye Bye Plastic Bags team Bali decided to hand deliver goods and money themselves directly where it is needed. (They even pay their airfares privately).

What is the plan?

While our priority is still with Suman and his village Palchok (48 destroyed houses) in the district of Sindhupalchok. We also received a request of the head of the district to help the other 586 families in that same district.
And we can do that, as you were all so generous. So we will. Our team leaves on Thursday, May 7th and will check in at the airport at 10.30. Please come and wave goodbye.

In Kathmandu Suman and his friends will wait at the airport to ensure a smooth arrival. We will use a part of your donations to buy the urgent needed food supplies. We will distribute 30 kilos of rice for nearly 600 families in the whole district. So, a total of 17'600 kilos of rice. Trucks are organised (one ride will cost 100 USD including driver and petrol) to start the 3.5 hours drive to the village of Suman. Distribution will happen from there. Special items like rain capes, tarpaulin, first aid kits, flashlights and water filters will be brought to Palchok from Bali.

Again, we do not want to nor can reach the whole of Nepal, nor get involved with disaster relief work. Bye Bye Plastic Bags just reaches out some help to our friend and Bye Bye Plastic Bags supporter Suman and his village. Note: the village had no other relief help so far.

Thank you for supporting us to help them. The team will arrive back in Bali on Tuesday May 12 at 12.20 pm at Bali International Airport. Then the whole story will be complete and in the meantime we will feed all news and updates through social media and e-mails.

Hi ini Melati dan Isabel,

Tim tetaplah tim. Itulah yang kami percaya. Salah satu anggota dari tim kami di Nepal saat ini sangat membutuhkan bantuan.

Terimakasih kepada semua pihak karena kami berhasil menggalang dana sebesar 10,000 USD. Dana berhasil kami himpun dari Rotary Canggu, Canggu Club, dan dana personal. Untuk memastikan bahwa semuanya berjalan lancar Eko Riyanto, Nicola Hennigan dan Roel Voorwald, tiga orang tua dari BBPB memutuskan untuk menyerahkan bantuan secara langsung, dimana mereka membayar tiket sendiri.

Apa Rencananya?

Sementara prioritas adalah membantu Suman dan desanya Palchok (48 rumah hancur) di Kabupaten Sindhupalchok. Kami juga menerima permintaan dari kepala daerah untuk membantu 586 keluarga lain di kecamatan yang sama. Tim berangkat ke Nepal tanggal 7 Mei.

Di Kathmandu Suman dan teman-temannya akan menunggu di bandara untuk memastikan kedatangan tim. Kami akan menggunakan sumbangan Anda untuk membeli persediaan makanan. Kami akan mendistribusikan 30 kilo beras untuk masing-masing 600 keluarga dengan total 17.600 kilo beras.

Sekali lagi, terimakasih. Tanpa bantuan saudara sekalian hal ini tidak mungkin terwujud. Kami hanya menjadi perpanjangan tangan dari bantuan yang Anda sumbangkan.
