Challenge

On May 27, 2006, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Indonesia near the densely populated city of Yogyakarta on the island of Java, killing over 5,500 people and injuring thousands more. Although the full extent of the deadly quake will not be known for some time, over 130,000 people have lost their homes, and heavy rain in the area has made conditions very difficult for survivors. Entire villages were leveled by the quake in many areas, and poor water quality is a huge threat to survivors.

Solution

In partnership with two Indonesian NGO’s, CARE intends to target 20,000 people. Activities will include providing immediate relief supplies like tents, ensuring access to clean water, and supplying food and hygiene supplies through local markets.

Long-Term Impact

CARE will rapidly reach those in need with emergency aid and help thousands of people rebuild their shattered lives. Clean water and food are crucial to preventing disease outbreaks in the aftermath of the earthquake.
