You are here: Indonesia Earthquakes and Tsunami

How have we helped?

A response team was deployed in Indonesia and has worked closely with local Rotarians to help survivors of the earthquake and tsunami. 

With the support of our incredible Rotary partners, we worked with the Indonesian government to help families in remote villages that were left with nothing.

We've provided tents, water filters and carriers, and mosquito nets to families in remote communities whose homes were completely destroyed.

Watch this video from Andre, a Response Team Member in Sulawesi, about how we've helped families in Indonesia.

Updates from Sulawesi

We've distributed tents, water filters, mosquito nets and water carriers to families affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia.

We've helped fishermen who live about half a kilometre from the camp where they're currently situated. They can't return home at the moment, as the area they lived in is a red zone.
