You can help bring urgently needed supplies and shelter to devastated families and their communities.
INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI
On 28 September, an earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, causing a tsunami. Over 2.4 million people have been affected. At least 2,100 people have died. Over 200,000 survivors are now in urgent need of clean water, food and shelter.
We’re on the ground handing out food packs, hygiene and shelter kits and running Child Friendly Spaces, but we urgently need your help to continue reaching children and families who have lost everything.
We’re committed to working with the Indonesian community beyond the initial aftermath, helping people to rebuild their futures.
In the next 6 months, with your help, we’ll distribute shelter kits to prepare families for the upcoming monsoon season. We’ll continue to provide nutritious food packs to children and their families as well as providing sanitation facilities. And we’ll continue to provide Child Friendly Spaces to children whose education has been disrupted.
Please donate today so we can continue to scale our work with those in desperate need.
Pray for Indonesia
We are praying for every one of the hundreds of thousands of people suffering in this terrible tragedy. For those who have lost loved ones or are searching for missing family and friends. For those in desperate need of food, clean water, medicine and shelter. We pray too for the relief workers working night and day to reach and help victims of the earthquake and tsunami. We would welcome your prayers.
