About Appeal

Ijen Assistance is run by the filmmakers of Novo Amor's music video entitled "Terraform", which charters the true story of the hardships that the sulphur miners of Kawah Ijen in Indonesia go through, in order to sustain their family.

It is not a registered charity, but it is dedicated to ensuring that 100% of any monies it receives will be used to benefit the families of the miners in this region. With your generous help, we channel any contribution directly to relief work in the region that has successfully sent over 100 porter’s children to school, brought new technology to the miners to make the porters job a little more humane, brought in many shipments of clothing and restored and renovated many schools. 

The relief work is led by Heinz Von Holzen, a veteran mountaineer, chef and photographer who has been providing aid in the area for many years and who personally travels to Ijen frequently to distribute the contributions. For more info, please check out and "The Story of Terraform" at .

    Assalamu alaikum! Thank you for sharing about Ijen on the music video. It was heartbreaking but good to learn about them. I will also work hard like those fathers and someday I will make more donations. I hope all the kids in the place will stay healthy and will have the opportunities to get education. Nana

    This year I was on Kawah Ijen and was lucky enough to speak to Moliyono, one of the workers, during my hike up the volcano. What he told me has upset me and I felt like I wanted to help him but didn’t know how. Now that I'm back I'm happy to have found this association by chance. Thank you and keep up this good deed.
