Another successful charity climb to support the Lombok Forgotten Children’s House Of Hope Centre.
Even though the summit is still closed our climbers were eager to tackle this challenging climb where amazing memories were made and long time friendships were formed. Again Rudy Trekker and his team made this climb extremely professional catering for our every needs. Climbing to the Senaru crater rim, sleeping above the clouds and under the stars was was a dream many climbers can only wish to achieve.
See you next year for our Mt Rinjani Charity Climb 2020!
Shouting out a massive thanks to our major sponsor Allied Pickfords, and the generous donors from Jakarta and Australia , that have made our annual Charity Drive such a huge success.
Together with Mel’s gofund me, we were able to distribute 900kg of clothes, shoes, toys, books and household items and 1 ton of rice to the Forgotten people on Lombok.
For four days we travelled throughout the remote villages in North, West, East and Central Lombok with Endri’s Foundation leading the way. Still recovering from the 2018 Earthquakes these people who have endured so much, welcomed us with open arms and gleaming smiles. We are taking home some amazing memories and have already started collecting for next year.
The Fiona Unity Foundation inaugural Charity Golf Tournament 26th April 2019.
Our first golf tournament held at Riverside Golf course in Bogor was a huge success thanks to the amazing sponsors and supporters. Teeing off at 12:30 for a Texas Scramble round saw many excited golfers exiting the club house on a loaded golf carts with cheers of encouragement.
With 2 ‘hole in one’ prizes of, IDR 100,000,000 cash and a Suzuki Ignis GT up for grabs the competition was hot.
The course was set up wonderfully by McGettigan’s as a ‘Lombok Sponsor’ with drink stations all the way and drink carts rehydrating us throughout the day. The super tasty smoothies generously supplied by Asia Serv Indonesia capped the game off perfectly.

We travelled to Bayan where we met with Rudy Trekker who helped us locate the most desperate villages in need of tents. Here we supplied our first school tent to children in an outer village near Senaru. Trying to stay positive was very hard when we were surrounded in devastation.
Previously a school for 167 children ranging from 7yrs- 15yrs now only rubble 😢
Now these kids gave a safe place to study when the wet season starts starts.
Thank you to our sponsors McGettigan’s, ACAM, Elders, Lindemans, Albens, Carlsberg.

‘TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
A lot of highs and a lot of lows as I traveled for 3 days through the many Kampungs in North, West and Central Lombok distributing 600kilos of clothes and books, 350 kilos of rice, a wheel chair and money donated from Jakarta and Lombok. Together with my dear friend Helen Douglas and the amazing team of Endri’s foundation we sought out the poorest of the poor. Daily discovering more and more people desperate for help. Endri, as always,ready with his book open to document the help that is needed. To see the smiles this charity drive has brought was so fulfilling. To see the poverty and desperation that we faced daily has made me even stronger to raise awareness of the struggle and dispair these Forgotten people face every day.
WE DON’T WALK AWAY!
