Thank you to our donors at the Tasmanian fundraser and to those who donated online to raise AUD $42,132 to assist those affected by the October 25, 2010 tsunami.

We surveyed the villages located to the south, many have been wiped out completely like Tumalea, and have been relocated inland with new schools, medical centers and houses built by NGO’s and the Indonesian Government.

Tumalea Village is located remotely to the north of Macaronis, two people died as a result of the October 25 tsunami and all houses were lost. Over the past 12 months the villagers have been attempting to rebuild their houses 3-4 km inland, located up a winding river, also located far from the coast which will dramatically affect their lifestyle of living off the ocean.

All boats in the village were also lost, and we have found that the locals have only managed to erect frame work for their new houses (47 family houses in total), and still they must walk 3-4 hours to get to the nearest rough track that is accessible by a motorbike, where one can catch a lift of 3-4 hours to the nearest port town of Sikakap. The economy in the village is virtually dead, there are no shops at all, and the village has been basically surviving off the jungle, with a 4-6 weekly drop of rice from the local government.

On behalf of our donors, Macaronis Resort has donated a new communal long boat for the village powered by a 15hp Yamaha outboard engine (already in the village). The new longboat will allow the village to have much more simplified access to Sikakap port, bringing in supplies and allowing the village to commence trading once again.

Handing Over Long Boat

 

Above: Handing over of the communal longboat to Tumalea Village, funded by donors after the tsunami.

In addition, we had planned to put money toward timber cladding for all houses that were only timber frames with either cast iron or thatched roofing to keep the rain out. However, Mercy Corps has now taken on the job of assisting the villagers in cladding their houses. Therefore Macaronis Resort has instead put money toward a new 15 KVA generator (already in the village), and wiring up all the houses, with two light bulbs and a power point for each of the 47 houses. In addition, at the request of the village Head, we have also supplied a large TV for communal viewing with a Sat TV dish, allowing the village to regain contact with the outside world.

We have also employed Tumalae Village to supply Bamboo for construction of our bamboo fence which will surround the perimeter of Macaronis Resort.

Joe JosephHere is $50 to help out … $30 more than to anchor there when I surfed there in 2006 … Carrick elected not to stop because of the anchor fee to the locals?
