Indonesia Tsunami Emergency Appeal Indonesia Tsunami Emergency Appeal

Indonesia Tsunami

Following a massive 7.5-magnitude earthquake, a tsunami as high as six metres smashed into the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, causing catastrophic damage and loss of life.

More than 2,000 people have lost their lives. We expect this to rise. More than 82,000 people have been displaced. The overall affected population could be as high as 2.4 million people. CARE is providing lifesaving clean water, hygiene kits, family shelter kits and more emergency items to those who have lost their homes to help them survive.

CARE is already on the ground in Indonesia, where we have worked for over 50 years alongside local partners. We are assessing the damage and are ready to respond with lifesaving clean water, shelter, and hygiene kits.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Should the funds raised through an emergency appeal exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people in the affected areas, or if there are changes in circumstances beyond CARE’s control which limit its ability to utilise all funds in the affected areas, CARE will direct excess funds to other emergency relief activities in the future.

Monthly donation will go to emergency relief & preparedness activities where it is needed most.
