Challenge

On Wednesday, September 30, a 7.6-magnitude earthquake struck just off the coast of Padang, Indonesia, a bustling port city of 900,000 people. The devastation and destruction is massive. Thousands were killed and the death toll continues to rise. Those who survived have lost their homes, livelihoods, and family members and are in desperate need of medical care, clean water, food, and other emergency relief items.

Solution

Our emergency response teams are on the ground running mobile and static health clinics so that as many people as possible are reached and receive the health care services that they need. We are delivering medicine, food supplies, and hygiene kits.

Long-Term Impact

This project will give thousands of earthquake survivors in and around Padang the medical care, food, and other items they need today and help them start rebuilding their lives.
