On 5 August, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck near Lombok and Bali in Indonesia. At least 506 people have been killed, with over 7,700 injured and 431,416 people have been displaced. In addition, more than 74,300 houses and 468 schools have been damaged. A number of public facilities such as hospitals, mosques, and health clinics have also been damaged.
CARE is responding in Lombok through partners.
“CARE is very concerned that the death toll will continue to rise,” says Helen Vanwel, CARE’s Country Director in Indonesia. “People now urgently need medical support, clean water, food, and a safe space to sleep.”
