Indonesia Disaster Response

On Friday, September 28, a devastating 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, quickly followed by an 18-foot tsunami. The continually rising death toll already exceeds 2,000, and the National Board for Disaster Management estimates that more than 2.4 million people have been affected.

Already, Water Mission has staff on Sulawesi, and two large shipments of water treatment supplies are en route. As we continue to assess the need and provide emergency relief, please pray for the victims of these heartbreaking disasters and for our response team.

We’re honored to be recognized by USA Today, Charity NavigatorMashable, and the Inter Press Service News Agency as a charity to trust for Indonesia earthquake and tsunami relief. To support those in dire need, please join our efforts today.

Quick facts:

  • We’ve sent two shipments from our headquarters that included two Living Water Treatment Systems, more than 1.1 million P&G Purifier of Water packets, and various water quality testing supplies.
  • Craig Williams (Disaster Response Coordinator) is in Palu, Sulawesi, and more staff members will soon join him.
  • Our Indonesia staff has deployed 10 additional Living Water Treatment Systems.
