Earthquake relief for 263,000 victims in Bantul



Provide food, shelter, water, hygiene, and healthcare to earthquake victims in Bantul, the hardest-hit region with the most casualties. IMC and the Red Cross are the only international charities here.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The 6.3 earthquake in Indonesia has killed over 6,000, hospitalized 19,000, injured 50,000, and displaced 150,000-600,000. At least 80% of ALL houses in Bantul were destroyed by the earthquake and more casualties have occurred here than in any other region. Despite the severity of the situation here, only IMC and the Red Cross have entered this rural area, where people are sleeping outdoors with no electricity, food, or water and are suffering extreme daytime heat and cold, rainy nights.

How will this project solve this problem?

In cooperation with a local NGO, Ambulan 118, IMC is operating a clinic in Palpabang, two mobile clinics, and a large distribution site with food, water, hygiene kits, sheeting, and stoves. IMC is providing healthcare, including mental healthcare.

Potential Long Term Impact

Earthquake relief through medical care, mental healthcare, and provision of supplies will help decimated communities survive the aftermath of the quake physically and emotionally, making rebuilding possible.
