Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Efforts
On Friday, Sept. 28 a 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit Palu on Sulawesi island in Indonesia causing a massive tsunami and killing more than 1,500 people. Thousands of buildings have been destroyed and more than 70,000 people have been displaced in Palu alone. This disaster is the second major earthquake to hit Indonesia in just two months.
In August, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Lombok, shaking the neighboring island of Bali as well. There were over 200 aftershocks in the following days. Over 430 deaths have been reported with another 1,500 people hospitalized with serious injuries. More than 150,000 people have been displaced.
Many of our charity partners were already on the ground responding to the earthquake in August and are now providing emergency response teams and supplies for the most recent earthquake and tsunami.
Please donate to Global Impact’s Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund to provide much-needed funding for these relief efforts.
