On the morning of January 15, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck Indonesia’s Sulawesi island. More than 90 people have lost their lives in this deadly quake, with hundreds more injured, and nearly 40,000 forced to live in shelters.
Water Mission’s Indonesia team has a long history of working in the Sulawesi region and quickly deployed to provide people impacted by the earthquake with emergency access to safe water.
As our team continues to respond to this urgent situation, we plan to:
Securing safe water access after a disaster is critical to preventing the spread of waterborne illnesses. With more than 20 years of disaster response experience, Water Mission has an extensive background in providing immediate and long-term safe water solutions.
Through established disaster response partnerships, our Indonesia team has been among the first responders to other disasters in Indonesia and around the world. It was not long ago that Water Mission responded to a similar disaster in this very region. In 2018, an earthquake and tsunami devastated the community of Palu, Sulawesi.
