Challenge

On September 28, Palu City and regencies of Donggala, Parigi Moutong and Sigi in Sulawesi, Indonesia experienced a 6.0-magnitude earthquake followed by a 7.4-magnitude earthquake, causing damage and casualties and triggering a tsunami which struck settlements and buildings. In initial reports, the Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management confirmed 844 fatalities, 632 injuries and 90 missing persons. All figures are expected to rise as first responders are able to access areas.

Solution

CARE is sending members of the emergency response team to the affected areas as part of an interagency assessment. Coordination after a disaster of this size is crucial. Right now, CARE and other aid agencies are working with the Indonesian government to ensure we reach the most vulnerable. Although it will take some time to determine the full extent of the earthquake's devastation, shelter, water, sanitation, and hygiene are likely to be factored into CARE's comprehensive response strategy.

Long-Term Impact

Your contribution is a crucial source for rapid response and the most effective way to support our work. It provides us with flexible resources to address the rapidly changing needs of families affected by this deadly crisis. Your gift will help CARE deploy needed supplies and staff, make funds available to emergency-affected communities for immediate assistance, strengthen our ability to respond to future emergencies, and provide overall program oversight to ensure the highest-quality response.
