After a devastating earthquake and resultant tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia, we've received reports of 62,659 people displaced, 66,926 houses damaged and 67,335 families affected. They're horrifying statistics and we're working with our partners to bring particular focus to returning children to school and families to normalcy.
Thousands of fatalities have been reported, with tens of thousands of people displaced - many of them families. Without quick transport of food, basic shelter and healthcare to the region, we could see more fatalities.
Children are some of the most vulnerable members of any community. By quickly providing children and their families with basic shelter, food and healthcare we enable children to return to school quicker while assisting the wider community's return to normalcy.
Quickly returning children to their education and enabling them to resume normal, healthy lives empowers them by improving their health, knowledge and preparedness to tackle future challenges. YachtAid Global firmly believes that strengthening communities in this way better prepares them to tackle natural disasters in the future.
