Mount Semeru in Lumajang Regency, East Java, Indonesia spewed eruption clouds at 3 pm local time (12/4), potentially affecting 110,977 residents. At least 13 people have died, dozens are injured, and the rest are forced to take shelter in the evacuation camps. Homes and public facilities are covered with volcanic ash, many of which were even razed to the ground. Road access was cut off and complete power outage.
Almost thousands of people fleed their home to seek a safer place unprepared. They lost their home, their belonging, even their love ones. The post eruption condition forces them to survive in shelters with nothing but anything they were wearing. They need our support to fulfill their needs: food, safe place, and recovery aid.
ACT team on the ground and all of its humanitarian fleets are striving to provide urgent needs as well as ensure the survivors remain safe. Your support will be converted to emergency needed such as temporary shelter, food aid, and medical aid.
Encouraging emergency aid, relief and recovery programs to long term impact will affect on the continuation of the survivors' livelihood.
