Segenap guru, orang tua dan murid Sekolah Kristen Tunas Bangsa serta staf Yayasan Harapan Bangsa melakukan pengumpulan dana untuk membantu anak-anak korban gempa di Palu, Donggala dan Lombok. Terkumpul dana sebesar Rp 230.000.000 dan sudah diserahkan untuk membantu para korban bencana alam.
Seluruh dana yang terkumpul sepenuhnya digunakan untuk membeli perlengkapan dengan perincian sebesar Rp 160.000.000 untuk Palu dan Donggala, serta Rp 70.000.000 untuk Lombok. Yayasan Harapan Bangsa mendanai sendiri biaya perjalanan tim ke Palu dan Lombok.

Palu dan Donggala (tanggal 12-15 November 2018)

Kami bekerja sama dengan tim Bee Relief. Ketika tiba, kami disambut oleh Danramil dan Babinsa. Dari Palu menuju ke kamp penampungan harus ditempuh dengan perjalanan selama dua jam. Seluruh dana yang terkumpul digunakan utk membeli perlengkapan yang dibutuhkan berupa alat tulis, perlengkapan sekolah, pakaian seragam, pangan, genset (enam unit) dan solar cell (lima unit) untuk penerangan. Bantuan diserahkan kepada:

  1. SD Lonca, Desa Lonca, Kec. Kulawi, Kab. Sigi.
  2. SD Bola Dangko
  3. SD Bolapapu, Desa Namo, Kec. Kulawi
  4. SD Bala Keselamatan
  5. SMP Tangkulawi
  6. Gereja Protestan Indonesia Donggala Betania, Desa Tangkulawi
  7. Pengungsi di Masjid Agung (makanan sehat)

Para korban mengalami kesulitan untuk mendapatkan air, pangan, tempat tinggal dan penerangan akibat infrastruktur yang rusak. Kedatangan tim yang terdiri dari Bpk. Slamet Sutopo, Bpk. Andreas Sadi dan Bpk. Herry Sinambela, membawa kesejukan dan sukacita tersendiri. Melewati medan yang cukup sulit akibat longsor dan jurang, perjalanan sepanjang 12 km dapat dilewati dalam waktu 1 jam 30 menit. Hingga kami pulang, gempa masih terasa beberapa kali. Namun hal ini tidak menyurutkan anak-anak untuk belajar.
Anak-anak di pengungsian begitu senang karena mendapatkan surat dari anak-anak Tunas Bangsa. Mereka berterima kasih karena ada yang memperhatikan dan peduli kepada mereka.
Tetap semangat anak-anak di Palu!

Lombok (tanggal 17-20 Desember 2018)

Tim yang berangkat ke Lombok bekerja sama dengan KCI (Komunitas Cahaya Indonesia). Tim ini terdiri dari Ibu Sarah Setiawan, Ibu Wiji Lestari, Ibu Wati Sutrisna, Bpk. Slamet Sutopo dan Bpk. Albert Tambun. Alat tulis, perlengkapan sekolah, pakaian seragam dan bahan pangan disalurkan ke desa-desa yang kami kunjungi. Selain itu tim juga memberkati desa-desa tersebut dan memberikan kekuatan lewat simulasi dan surat yang ditulis anak-anak Tunas Bangsa. Mereka berlomba untuk menjawab surat dari anak-anak Tunas Bangsa Jakarta.
Desa pertama yang kami kunjungi adalah Desa Guntur Macan (Lombok Barat) yang belum pernah dikunjungi sejak gempa terjadi. Jalan menuju ke sana cukup sulit.
Adapun sekolah-sekolah yang kami kunjungi berada di:

  1. Desa Selat (Lombok Barat)
  2. Desa Sira (Lombok Utara)
  3. Desa Rangsot Timur (Lombok Utara)

Menurut pengakuan anak-anak pengungsi, gempa masih dapat dirasakan beberapa kali. Mereka sangat takut bila berada di bangunan beratap sehingga mereka memilih berada di tenda. Begitu juga halnya dengan sekolah, mereka lebih nyaman berada di bangunan beratap rumbia.
Terima kasih untuk bantuan peduli kemanusiaan yang diberikan oleh anak-anak Sekolah Kristen Tunas Bangsa sehingga dapat menjadi berkat bagi yang membutuhkan. Tuhan menumbuhkan benih yang kalian tabur. Amin.


Palu, Donggala and Lombok

The teachers, parents, and students of Tunas Bangsa Christian School, along with the staff of Yayasan Harapan Bangsa worked together to collect funds to help the children of the earthquake victims in Palu, Donggala, and Lombok. We were able to gather Rp 230.000.000, and it has been donated in the form of stationeries, school supplies, uniform, nourishments for the family, electrical generators and solar cells.
Of the aforementioned funds collected, Rp 160.000.000 is given for Palu and Donggala, while Rp 70.000.000 is given to to Lombok earthquake victims. The funds necessary for the team to go over to the victim’s location and to help them there is given by Yayasan Harapan Bangsa.

Palu and Donggala (12-15 November 2018)

Our team worked together with the Bee Relief team. When we arrived, we were picked up by the teams from the Indonesian military, and they took us from Palu to the base camp of the relief operation. We then distributed the donations we have prepared to five different schools in the area, a church (GPID Bethania), and we also give out some meals in a mosque where a lot of the victims gathered.

  1. SD Lonca, Desa Lonca, Kec. Kulawi, Kab. Sigi.
  2. SD Bola Dangko
  3. SD Bolapapu, Desa Namo, Kec. Kulawi
  4. SD Bala Keselamatan
  5. SMP Tangkulawi
  6. Gereja GPID (Gereja Protestan Indonesia Donggala) Betania, Desa Tangkulawi
  7. Distributing healthy food at Masjid Agung

The team (Mr. Slamet Sutopo, Mr. Andreas Sadi and Mr. Herry Sinambela) has to go through dangerous terrains, broken roads, and areas which is susceptible to landslides for 12 km (it took about 1 ½ hours) before they finally reach their destination. The victims are having a hard time in getting enough clean water, food, shelter, while also needing to deal with broken infrastructure around them, which makes getting help even more difficult. In the same time, they were still experiencing small earthquakes (aftershocks) even for the whole duration of the team’s ministry in the area. It was a heartbreaking sight, but we hope that the arrival of the team from our school gave them a little hope and relief for their situation. The children were also happy to read the letters which were given by the students of Tunas Bangsa Christian School. They were grateful to know in their heart that there are people out there who care about them.

Lombok (17-20 December 2018)

The team who went on the relief trip to Lombok were Mrs. Sarah Setiawan, Mrs. Wiji Lestari, Mrs. Wati Sutrisna, Mr. Slamet Sutopo, and Mr. Albert Tambun. The team went to several villages in Lombok, and donated some stationeries, school supplies, clothes, and some nourishments. The team also played with the children in the village, and gave them the letters written by the students of Tunas Bangsa Christian School. The team went to different villages in the western and northern area of Lombok and have to go through broken roads and dangerous terrains.
We visited schools at:

  1. Desa Selat (Lombok Barat)
  2. Desa Sira (Lombok Utara)
  3. Desa Rangsot Timur (Lombok Utara)

The children were still experiencing some earthquakes while the team were there. They were also still afraid to be in a building with a roof on it, so they prefer to stay in a tent or a place with a rooftop made from dry leaves. The team’s heart was broken to see their situation, and we are all grateful for the humanitarian help which has been given by Tunas Bangsa Christian School. Let God help the seed we have planted to grow.
