Situation

We have joined forces with the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to reach tens of thousands of people affected by Indonesia’s devastating tsunami. More than 1,400 people have been killed and thousands of homes have been destroyed after a 7.5 magnitude earthquake, which triggered a tsunami, struck Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, on Friday 28 September.

Solution

Our Caritas aid workers on the ground have a wealth of experience responding to this type of disaster and are already present in two dioceses near the affected area - Makassar in South Sulawesi and Manado in North Sulawesi. They are being supported by our sister agency Catholic Relief Service (CRS) who are already addressing the immediate needs of survivors, with relief supplies, including tarps, blankets, and sleeping mats and also sanitation and clean-up kits.
