Challenge

The island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, Southeast Asia, was hit by a massive series of earthquakes and a tsunami on September 28, 2018. With access to the affected areas difficult and communications down, the full scale of this tragedy is not yet known.

Solution

ActionAid is responding immediately. Your donation makes locally-led search-and-rescue operations possible, and meets the community's most urgent needs, including medical attention, food, clothes, water, electricity, and temporary shelter. With your support, we will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate needs for longer-term response and rebuilding.

Long-Term Impact

Like so many emergencies, the intersection of this natural disaster and systemic injustice is clear. That's why ActionAid works on locally-led development and human rights programs in Indonesia 365 days a year. 98% of ActionAid staff are from the country in which they work, leading to truly responsible and lasting change.
