Indonesia Emergency

Emergency response continues for survivors of the devastating Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami.

More than 2,000 people died and thousands of families lost their homes when a tsunami and earthquake struck Sulawesi in Indonesia in September.

The scale of this disaster has been overwhelming, with remote communities cut off due to landslides and liquefaction.

Your gifts mean our partner on the ground can reach families in desperate need with clean water, tarpaulins and emergency housing.

On 23 December, Indonesia was hit by yet another deadly tsunami, this one striking coastal towns and villages around the Sunda Strait, west of Jakarta. More than 400 people have lost their lives, nearly 1,500 have been injured and more than 20,000 people have lost their homes.

Act for Peace has been in regular contact with our local partner in Indonesia as they continue to monitor the situation and asses what assistance might be needed. Together with our local partner, we continue to respond to the thousands of people affected by September’s Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami, as they continue to respond to urgent needs, recover and rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
