Correspondance between ASAP and Santos continued for over 12 months. Over this time Santos initially showed some willingness in negotiating with ASAP to find a more significant way for Santos to contribute to recovery in Sidoarjo (December 2008 meeting with Christian Bennett). ASAP encouraged Santos to engage with local community groups and NGOs. However as the media hype surrounding the Sidoarjo mud-flow wore off so too did Santos' interest in providing much assistance to the Sidoarjo community. In 2009 ASAP was unable to get any written response from Santos on the Sidoarjo issue or on the Mobile Health Clinic Proposal that ASAP presented to Santos along with the assistance of Indonesian based Gaia Foundation.
