Forgotten children of Lombok

This is a project that is very dear to me and I would love for anyone to share this. Forgotten Children of Lombok: These are photos taken over the last 2 weeks & we are digging up a lot of really sick children who have never seen doctors and are working on government paths to get them to government doctors, some sadly may not be able to be helped - but my goal is that they should not pass hungry or in pain. These kids and their mums and dads are the poorest of the poor and I am setting up $28 monthly food parcels or 'less than a dollar a day type funding for a years trial. $28 buys a huge food parcel that includes a gas bottle for cooking. The food, soap, gas etc is delivered monthly to them for free on a small truck by some very very caring Indonesian young people so we can get 100% of funding to our children. Thanks to new technology & face book we can also create a very transparent feed back loop with photos, videos, messages etc of their activity so that donor's can get monthly thank you's & feed back. One of my past problems has been that in sending a $28 per month donation had a bank transfer fee of $25 leaving just $3 - I will soon have our trust set up and we will be able to send blocks of donations across which attract a only one off $25 fee for all. Love to hear from anybody or work groups who would like to trial this for a year with our new organisation. The last photo came in 40 minutes ago which has prompted my post. Message me here on FB or email Thank you
