In September 2018, a deadly earthquake struck Indonesia and was shortly followed by a tsunami which left widespread destruction across the island nation. The people of this diverse, vibrant community were left shattered, with homes, businesses and livelihoods all gone in the blink of an eye.
In addition to the earthquake, the huge waves destroyed everything in their path, leaving whole communities hidden under the rubble.
Over two thousand people were killed
More than 10,000 injured, 4,612 very seriously
More than 200,000 people were displaced
With your generous support, Muslim Aid's Indonesia Tsunami and Quake Appeal enables our team to send aid directly to vulnerable people in the worst affected areas, providing a lifeline in a sea of devastation.
Hundreds of thousands of people’s lives have been changed forever – now, the survivors are struggling to access even the most basic human essentials like food, shelter and clean, safe water.
It is imperative to act quickly when a disaster strikes in order to reach those in the worst affected areas and save as many lives as possible. Here at Muslim Aid, we are committed to doing everything we can to help these vulnerable people through providing essential supplies and food aid as well as actively working to support those whose lives have been changed forever by the disaster.
When a natural disaster hits, it’s important to remember that every member of the community is affected. Children, the elderly, and entire families have been displaced and made homeless, leaving them susceptible to the elements without proper shelter or support in place.
As well as their homes and belongings, many of these people may have lost friends or family members. In extreme cases, children have been orphaned and families separated, leaving some of the most vulnerable members of society at risk of exploitation. These people need a sense of safety and security, as well as basic life necessities like food, water and shelter, in order to overcome the worst effects of the disaster.
Those who have been affected by the devastating consequences of these natural disasters will need our continued support in order to overcome the hurdles they face and regain control of their lives once more.
