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.

Yogya Today


It's been more than a month since Saturday 27 May 2006, when quakes shattered Yogyakarta and parts of Central Java. However, the jobs that need to be done are still there despite the time. There's still many homeworks to do to help others. Many are irreplaceable. From only material losses, such as houses, schools, government and private offices, to lives. They are still fresh in the memory of people from Yogyakarta and vicinity. Allah almighty, blessed are people who can pick up hikmah from all of this, as hikmah is a muslim's treasure. This might be a micro picture of the promised day, when the apocalypse will happen, when a mother forgets her sons, when the left calf linked to the right one. Alhamdulillah, You still allow us to get closer to You, ya Rabb.

34 Days Since the First Quake and the Actions are Still on...


It's been more than a month that the PortalInfaq Humanity Team works in the quake location in Yogyakarta and Central Java, and the team is determined to continue the recovery effort.

Based on the information given by Pak (Mr.) Marlam, one of the villager of Dukuh Pelemsewu), on Friday 30 June 2006, the PortalInfaq team, in cooperation with Majlis Ta’lim Al-Khawarizmi Universitas Bina Nusantara ( Binus ), Komunitas ba-Depok, dan Manajemen Qolbu Club (MQCC) perform a humanity action by distributing foods, including rice, bottled water, milk for children and instant noodle.
