You are here: Indonesia Earthquakes and Tsunamis

How are we helping?

Right now, we have a response team in Indonesia, working closely with local Rotarians to help survivors of the earthquake and tsunami. 

With the support of our incredible Rotary partners, we're working with the Indonesian government to help families in remote villages that are left with nothing.

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

Watch this video update from Andre, a Response Team Member in Sulawesi, about how we're helping families in Indonesia.

Updates from Sulawesi

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

We're helping 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.
