The proceeds from crafts and rendang, a savoury meat dish, sold at the Indonesian pavilion will go toward supporting thousands of people displaced by the natural disaster.

More than 20,000 people are believed to have been made homeless on Lombok, with 236 severely injured, and authorities have appealed for more medical personnel and basic supplies. All but two of were killed on Lombok; the others died on Bali.

"There has been no help at all here", said 36-year-old Multazam, who was staying with hundreds of others under tarpaulins on a dry paddy field outside West Pemenang village. "We are waiting for heavier equipment", Basarnas official Teddy Aditya said.

Indonesian soldiers look for victims at a collapsed house in Lombok following the Indonesian quake. "We ran out into the street and a friend and I stood in the parking area hanging on to a parked vehicle which was also swaying severely", said retiree Deborah Storck, who was about to eat dinner at a restaurant on Lombok's west coast when the quake hit. "Gili Air has run out of food and water so they have come to us", she messaged, adding later that she had been taken on a boat to the main island and would go on to Bali.

"I am crying... he did not even flinch, even though it is allowed to leave your prayer during an natural disaster", said Indonesian cleric Yusuf Mansur, who shared the clip to his two millions followers on Instagram.

"Of course they are all sad", he said through a translator.

"I need food, I need clothes, I need anything that anyone can give me". "Our family and maybe 10 others", she said.

But she said the family is going to try to get on a ferry to Bali on Tuesday and that their flight back to B.C.is on August 13.

However, "Lombok is perhaps a bit different as, for example, there isn't infrastructure in place to deal with these disasters".

Fortunately, they now have shelter at their hotel and Montgomery-Lay said they feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the support they've already received.

Evacuations from Lombok continue.

Phil Turtle, from the Australia-Indonesia Business council, said he thought tourists would return.

"This is obviously a bad tragedy and we would hope it's not compounded further by a fall-off in the vastly important tourism industry, as this is a potential double whammy for locals".

Like Bali, Lombok is known for pristine beaches and mountains.

Separately, a woman was pulled alive from the rubble of a collapsed grocery store in the north, near the epicentre of the quake, the second tremor to rock the tropical island in a week.
