Help the victims of the Dec 2018 tsunami in Java, Indonesia
On 22 Dec 2018 evening, a tsunami was caused by Krakatoa volcano and hit the west coast of Java. Several hundred people have died or are severely injured, thousands of people are in urgent need for help.

We're not a charity organization, but we have both personal and professional ties with Indonesia and our hearts and prayers are with the victims now. We try to provide fast, unburocratic and effective help for those in the areas of West Java who need it NOW:
If you like to send a small donation for the victims of the Dec 2018 tsunami in Java (Indonesia), we are providing a direct channel to do so: we collect donations through our PayPal account and forward this money direct to our local expedition leader Andi who delivers this money directly to affected people in need through his organization ITGA / HPI.
This way, your money is going to the right people with nearly no middleman involved. We only keep the processing fees from PayPal (about 3%) and nothing else. Promised.
Once total received donations have accumulated more than 500 EUR, we will send this money directly to Indonesia where it will be distributed to people in need.
