Surfaid Emergency Relief Fund for Padang Earthquake

SurfAid has set up an Emergency Response Appeal to help the people of Padang who were affected by the 7.6 earthquake of September 30th. (Surfaid is a great organization set up by surfer/physician Dr. Dave Jenkins.  The aim of Surfaid is to combat deadly, preventable diseases in areas frequented by surfers.)

I’m sure you’ve seen the video and pictures that have come out of this tragedy.  Thanks to the power of the Internet, a little bit goes a long way.

Any donations you can make are greatly appreciated.

Please donate here.

    I am working for IIWC and i wonder if it is possible to apply for funding with Surfaid/ work together with Surfaid, in order to set up an international volunatry project in Padang or surrounding,

    kind regards,

      We are pumped that you are looking for a way to help. Unfortunately, we are not officially associated with SurfAid. We support them and help out where we can, but I have no contact to forward you to. But try contacting them directly through their site at
