Lombok, is being affected by a big earthquake. Up till now, there have been more than a hundred earthquakes in big and small scale. The people are trying to recover, and so other Indonesians in other areas try to help them to recover. Ayo Dongeng Indonesia, the community of the storytelling movement in Indonesia, is also taking a small part by sending volunteers to help, especially for children. We name it, Story Therapy. Volunteers do storytelling and games with stories, to help children in Lombok to be more happy as part of their stress (trauma) release. 

Oot and Yanie in the above photos, were the first Ayo Dongeng volunteers  to arrive in Lombok after the quakes.
