It is fair to say that our efforts to help natural disaster victims could not come at a better time since two days after, Palu, Sigi and Donggala on the Sulawesi island were hit by a massive earthquake, ground liquefaction and tsunami. The recovery and rebuilding of these hard hit areas will take years.
It has been a privilege for AQ GOLF, part of the AQ e-magazine, to organize this annual golf event, the “AQ DULUX INVITATIONAL 2018 – Benefit Golf Tournament” on last Wednesday, 26 of September. With the support of more than 25 corporate sponsors and around 100 players, it brings us great joy to be able pull together the generosity of so many, to assist the needy and the victims of many situations that face our society today.

This year we were called to assist the victims of the Lombok island earthquake, which occurred on the 5th of August 2018. One of the survivors of that earthquake, Mr. Hamidin, who was in an international conference in Mataram at the time, gave his personal account of the event and joined our tournament.
