Unable to stand aside, Dimash’s “Dimash Indonesian Dears Fan-Club” has partnered with the charity Dompet Dhuafa to help people affected by natural disasters.

Dompet Dhuafa is one of the largest charities in Indonesia with years of experience. During natural disasters, Dompet Dhuafa is always at the forefront of providing necessary assistance to citizens.

In addition, DIDFC hosted a charity auction with Rumah Songket Ekahalaban, a traditional Indonesian fabric boutique. The store owner is a fan club member who donated one of her songkets as a lot.

Songket is a handmade fabric, traditional for the countries of Southeast Asia, embroidered with silver or gold. The word Songket comes from the Malay word Sungkit, which means hook.

Songket is considered to be a luxurious and prestigious fabric. In ancient times, only people from the upper class could afford to wear it. And this is not surprising, because earlier these fabrics used real gold threads. Songket is nowadays an important part of traditional wedding attire and other formal occasions.

In Indonesia, songket is very popular in many regions. The fabric, auctioned by Dimash’s Indonesian fan club and boutique Rumah Songket Ekahalaban, is made in Halaban, West Sumatra. It is 100% handmade and took almost two months to make.

Dimash Fan Club and Rumah Songket Ekahalaban donated all proceeds from the auction to the Dompet Dhuafa Foundation. As of February 21, 8.8 million Indonesian Rupiah have already been collected (this is over 600 USD, 250.000 tenge)
