Smiles Earthquake-Tsunami-Liquefaction's Survivors

Dear 
Our respected donors across the globe,

I am reaching you again to deliver the updates on Covid-19 aid distribution in Indonesia. The ground team have been delivered 400 food packages for Palu's earthquake-tsunami-liquefaction's survivors.

Just to remind that, it was on 28 September 2018, a shallow, large earthquake struck in the neck of the Minahasa Peninsula, Indonesia, with its epicentre located in the mountainous Donggala Regency, Central Sulawesi. The magnitude 7.5 quake was located 70 km (43 mi) away from the provincial capital Palu and was felt as far away as Samarinda on East Kalimantan and also in Tawau, Malaysia.[5] This event was preceded by a sequence of foreshocks, the largest of which was a magnitude 6.1 tremor that occurred earlier that day.

Following the mainshock, a tsunami alert was issued for the nearby Makassar Strait. A localised tsunami struck Palu, sweeping shore-lying houses and buildings on its way. The combined effects of the earthquake and tsunami led to the deaths of an estimated 4,340 people.This makes it the deadliest earthquake to strike the country since the 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake, as well as the deadliest earthquake worldwide in 2018, surpassing the previous earthquake that struck Lombok a few months earlier, killing more than 500. The Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) confirmed that a tsunami had been triggered, with its height reaching an estimated maximum of 4 to 7 metres (13 to 23 ft), striking the settlements of Palu, Donggala and Mamuju along its path. 

The earthquake caused major soil liquefaction in areas in and around Palu. In two locations this led to mudflows in which many buildings became submerged causing hundreds of deaths with many more missing. The liquefaction was considered to be the largest in the world and was deemed as rare. 

It has been 2 (two) years the disasters has been passed, and there are still unsolved problems for survivors especially on the development of economy, the numbers of unemployment are raising, damages-schools, etc. and the Covid-19 make more difficult for survivors.    

The aid ditribution take place in Sigi Regency and Donggala Regency, Palu, Central Sulawesi on November 13th, 2020. 
Iqbal one of beneficiaries said that we are very happy to receive the aid from GlobalGiving donors and we hope that the aid could lighten up for us to face the uncertain time. The other beneficiaries who is a widow so grateful to receive the aid, she said that as a widow felt so difficult to get informal daily labour and so impressed to GlobalGiving donors and ACT Foundation which always deliver the aid at any condition that face by the earthquake-tsunami-liquefaction's survivors. 

Indonesian community across provinces in Indonesia huge thanks to all of you. Your geneousity and sincere help directly benefit for vulnerable families across Indonesia. Please stay safe and healthy.
