Indonesia Tsunami and Earthquake

On Friday 28 September, the people of Sulawesi looked on in horror as giant waves crashed onto their shores.

First the island was hit by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake. Then a tsunami tore through the region, flattening everything in its path and turning thousands of homes to rubble.

Families have been left devastated as they struggle with the catastrophic aftermath. Thousands are still searching for lost family members, whilst also enduring landslides and power outages.

The disaster has caused the displacement of around 66,000 people and the death of 1,400, and these numbers are expected to rise.

A response team is on the way to understand how we can help Sulawesi families who have lost everything. But our resources are limited after an unprecedented stream of disasters this year. Please consider donating today to help families in Indonesia and around the world who have been affected by natural disasters and conflict.
