A powerful 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck Indonesia, killing at least 268 people and injuring hundreds more, many of them children. Your donation to this fund will provide shelter and emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine, as well as support for long-term recovery efforts in affected communities.
The earthquake has devastated the Cianjur region in West Java province. The affected area is densely populated and prone to landslides. In addition to loss of life, the earthquake has severely damaged thousands of homes, displacing nearly 58,000 people. Several schools have also been destroyed. Your donation to the Indonesia Earthquake Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and provide long-term support in affected communities.
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts in Indonesia. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
