Amazing Borneo Presents Donations To Parties Affected By The Ranau Earthquake

The magnitude 5.9 earthquake that occurred at the Ranau epicentre on June 5th was one of the most devastating occurrences that happened in 2015, causing 18 deaths and grievously affecting many of the victims’ families and friends.

The people who are the greatest affected by the earthquake are  the mountain guides and the porters who immediately lost their main source of income indefinitely. In order to offer assistance to parties in need, Amazing Borneo has set up the Amazing Initiative -- a crowdfunding effort initiated to help raise funds for the mountain guides as well as families of the deceased Robbi Sapinggi and Joseph Selungin, who were former staff of Amazing Borneo.

On September 4th 2015, Amazing Borneo presented donation cheques to three parties, namely the representatives of the Persatuan Malim Gunung Sabah (Sabah Mountain Guide Association), Rozitah Daimin (widow of the late Joseph Selungin’s) and Reena Joshi (widow of the late Robbi Sapinggi).
