More than 1.5 million people have been affected by a double natural disaster in Indonesia, which has killed at least 2,000 people and left nearly 70,000 displaced. A powerful earthquake struck Central Sulawesi, before waves up to six metres high hit the cities of Palu and Mamuju and the district of Donggala at hundreds of miles an hour.
Vital supplies are arriving, and our partners are reaching more remote areas with food, water and medicine. But we still need your help.
We are working with the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), and through ACT Alliance and our sister agencies on the ground: Yakkum Emergency Unit, Church World Service and Pelkesi are supporting the delivery of food, shelter, clean water, sanitation and other relief supplies to Palu and Donggala.
Please help the recovery effort and donate to our Indonesia Tsunami Appeal.

We are deeply saddened by the devastation triggered by the earthquake and tsunami: it has wrecked lives, torn apart communities and caused untold suffering.’
