Archives (8th August 2018): Last hurdles cleared

Some good news today: We have just been confirmed that Tahir’s security clearance to leave the country (to be allowed to be resettled) has come through today. This is, in principle, the last official administrative hurdle that could prevent him from travelling on 15th August (at least, to the extent that I am aware of). Now, there is nothing left, but counting time down. Seven days to go!

The earthquake in Lombok of Indonesia has kept us busy. With over 100 people being killed, hundreds injured and ten of thousands homeless, we are trying to support the local authorities and Red Cross to mobilise resources to respond to the needs of the people. Sad times for people of Lombok and Bali - hopefully the recovery and reconstruction will be happening as smooth as possible.
