Support SURFAID all September at ZJBH

surfaidzjmain

For the whole month of September, we are teaming up with SurfAid and asking all our customers to donate any amount to help provide needed support and awareness for the different programs they offer in remote locations. If you don’t know anything about SurfAid, it is a non-profit started by Dr. Dave Jenkins after he was on a surf trip to the Mentawai islands and saw the impoverished conditions the locals were living in.  He vowed to help these people through providing simple upgrades to their health and sanitation and by bringing awareness to these conditions to traveling surfers on a global level.

SurfAid provides very practical support such as materials to build water tanks, water taps and toilets for clean water and sanitation, mosquito nets to avoid malaria, materials for community health posts to support pregnant women, mothers and children and materials for evacuation roads to help communities escape to safety when another tsunami hits.

But it is the capacity building of community members, schoolchildren, community health volunteers and relevant government staff that really lies at the heart of what SurfAid does to increase the independence and health status of communities and reduce the risk from natural disasters.

To learn more about what SurfAid does with your donations, visit their website here.  Here is a special message from the founder of SurfAid:
