ActionAid is responding
ActionAid and its local partners are bringing essential supplies to those who have lost everything and are without power, water or shelter.
We’ve reached the most affected areas, bringing temporary shelter, electricity generators and solar lamps. We are also distributing water, blankets and nappies for people in urgent need.
The circumstances of carrying out the recovery are very difficult right now. As our colleague, Chalid, reported to us, “It’s not just that we’ve had a tsunami. It’s not just that we have had an earthquake too. It’s the liquefaction and the mudslides too. It’s unprecedented.”
Liquefaction is the grim process by which the force of an earthquake churns soil into liquid – swallowing whole buildings, homes and people. In Indonesia, whole villages have been swallowed up by the earth.
Please give whatever you can to our Earthquake Emergency Appeal today, your donation will help to save more lives and help survivors rebuild their lives.
