Challenge

A tsunami caused by a volcanic erruption caused damage and loss of life in the area surrounding Sunda Strait in Indonesia. The death toll has risen over 400 with 1,495 still missing. Rescue teams are searching for survivors but are hampered by torrential rains and local flooding. Indonesia has already experienced three major natural disasters in the last four months, including the Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami that killed over 2,100 people in September and an earthquake in Lombok in August.

Solution

World Vision is on the ground, responding to the immediate and urgent needs of the affected population, especially children. We have deployed experienced and trained assessment team to identify and assess the pressing needs of the people affected. Preliminary plans are to assist 15,000 people in Pandeglang and Serang Districts, Banten Province with emergency relief supplies and child protection activities through World Vision's Child-Friendly Spaces.

Long-Term Impact

World Vision plans to stay for at least a 9 month response with an initial relief phase of 3 months providing hygiene and shelter kits, cash assistance, access to health and nutrition facilities and services, and child protection through Child-Friendly Spaces. During the following recovery and rehabilitation phase, World Vision will use cash programming for improved access to water and sanitation, shelter, and recovery of livelihoods.
