Last Friday, the people of Sulawesi Island in Indonesia looked on in horror as giant waves crashed onto their shores.

First, the island was hit by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake. Then a tsunami tore through the region, flattening everything in its path and turning thousands of homes into rubble.

Families have been left devastated as they struggle with the catastrophic aftermath. Thousands are still searching for lost family members, while also enduring landslides and power outages. It is estimated that more than 1,300 have died and over 50,000 people are homeless. 

ShelterBox is deploying the Response Team to help people made homeless by this disaster. ShelterBox has aid pre-positioned in nearby Malaysia which will be deployed if appropriate for this emergency.

In August, multiple massive earthquakes in Lombok, Indonesia killed hundreds of people and made hundreds of thousands homeless.

Together with Rotary, our teams in Indonesia have now distributed ShelterBoxes to 658 households and conducted training alongside these distributions. We have also distributed and set up 14 tents to replace maternity and post-natal clinics destroyed by the earthquakes. The partnership between Rotary and ShelterBox fuels our mission and makes our work possible.  

THANK YOU.
