Indonesia earthquake and tsunami appeal

Funding Goal
Funds Raised

On Friday 28 September, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake, followed by a tsunami, struck the region of Sulawesi in Indonesia, followed by more than 100 aftershocks which continued over the weekend.

Over 2,000 people are now known to have died in the disaster with thousands more injured, and more than 80,000 people have been displaced. Thousands of homes, buildings and essential infrastructure have been destroyed, with electricity supplies still disrupted and landslides continuing to affect access to the area by road.

Following the disaster, we launched a large-scale emergency response and hope to reach 10,000 families with essential supplies over the next six months. Our teams are on the ground and have visited communities in Palu, Sigi and Parigi Moutong, to assess the urgent needs of affected children and their families.
