The dive professionals who have stayed on Gili T after the quake to help rebuild, travelled over to the island by boat to offer first aid and to see how they were coping

They checked to see if emergency medical treatment was needed among the elderly surviving out in the open

The team have now made two trips over to the island to help out

One of the biggest problems is that the island is running out of clean, safe water

Minors cuts and abrasions were common problems

Most of the local workers on Gili T come from the nearby island of Lombok which was the epicentre of the quake. Nearly 250 are reported to have been killed on Lombok, at least 120,000 are homeless and houses and businesses have been extensively destroyed in the northern part of the island. The dive centres have set up funding pages to help their staff and their families.
