Aid Appeal for the Indonesian Quake


The 6.5 richter eartquake on the early hour that hit south Yogyakarta in the island of Java, has left more than 5,800 dead, thousands injured and as many as 200,000 people are displaced. Although relief operations have been coming, many of the remote villages are still untouched. These people, not only are without home, but also are left without food and in some cases without clean water.
Portal Infaq Indonesia, our partner in Indonesia, have engaged relief operations, targeted at these remote villages, like Tulasan-Bambang Lipuro, in Bantul district and Sangeang-Srimulyo, in Piyungan district. Currently, the operations in this emergency phase are focused on providing temporary shelters, medical aids and basic food. If you would like to know the progress of the Yogya Quake programmes, you could check out the news in PortalInfaq Indonesia, which are in Bahasa Indonesia.
It is clear that we need to reach out to many more such villages. We certainly need even more resources to help these people in building up their lives again in the months to come. Your donations, would certainly be welcome and much appreciated.
