It has been almost 3 weeks of the earthquake and tsunami struck Sulawesi, Indonesia. The government has ended search efforts of missing people on 11th October. Over 610,000 people are affected by the disaster. More than 82,000 people have been displaced and at least 2,000 people were killed. Right now, the government is planning to relocate survivors and build temporary shelters in Donggala and Sigi. Some families have set up tents on the roadsides. A lack of proper sanitation facilities in the affected area remains a concern.
CEDAR has allocated funds to support a local Christian organisation, PESAT, to distribute emergency items in 4 villages in central Sulawesi. About 1,000 households will receive food, cooking tools, and hygiene kits. On the other hand, CEDAR continues to communicate with Integral Alliance members and prepare to respond to the needs of survivors.
GIVE NOW to support the affected people and relief efforts in Indonesia!
Pray for the survivors and front line workers
- Some communities have not received proper assistance. We pray that the Lord grants wisdom to the Indonesian government and all responding units to swiftly bring necessary help to those awaiting.
- In Palu, about 68% of health facilities are not functioning; and poor hygiene becomes a threat to the affected communities, including threats of waterborne diseases and vector-borne diseases. We pray the Lord will curb any outbreaks of epidemic.
- Among the affected are vulnerable women and children who have lost their loved-ones, homes, and experienced over 600 aftershocks. Their traumatised experience requires long-term psycho-social support. May the Lord heal their hearts.
