Partner with Water Missions International and provide safe, clean water and disaster relief in the aftermath of recent earthquakes in Indonesia.
With drinking wells covered from the floods, the water supply has become extremely polluted. WMI staff anticipates a great need for safe water in response to this disaster, as initial assessments begin today. In Padang, a city of 900,000, more than 500 people have been killed. This number continues to rise as the rubble from buildings, bridges, and houses is slowly lifted. However, as the rain continues and floods begin to rise, the total need will grow.
With a native staff of five (5) already on the ground in Indonesia, assessments will begin to determine the total need. Currently, WMI has 32 systems in country that will be used to aid in the relief of the people of Padang and surrounding areas.
Each system is capable of treating 10,000 gallons of water each day, enough for 5,000 people in a disaster situation. With Indonesia staff and a country program, we have the support for this response to become sustainable community development.
"We count it a blessing to respond very quickly and cost-effectively to this disaster. However, funds are needed before WMI can initiate a full response to these hurting people." - Jerry Miner, Director of Disaster Relief
