Infinity Holidays and Buffalo Tours Join to Build Shelters for Lombok

Infinity Holidays and Buffalo Tours have committed to build 150 short-term and 40 permanent shelters on the devastated island of Lombok, Indonesia, where 80 percent of structures were damaged or destroyed by a trifecta of recent earthquakes.

By funding and green-lighting the project immediately, help will arrive within days.

Peter Christensen, country manager, Buffalo Tours Indonesia, said, “Lombok has always welcomed our travellers so it is time we repaid that kindness. Our long-standing motto is Changing Lives Through Travel and this is an opportunity to put action behind those words.”

The project will be expanded as more of Buffalo Tours’ partners join to supply shelters and dig wells in Lombok. Two types of anti-quake shelters will be built; temporary, single-family shelters and semi-permanent, multi-family shelters.
