#TogetherWeCan Save the Lives of Indonesians

On Friday 28 September, an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a terrifying tsunami that reached 18 feet in height and left a trail of destruction in its wake.

Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities have been decimated. More than 1,600 people have died and hundreds of thousands of survivors are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, many of whom are children.

Now, on behalf of the UK’s 14 leading aid agencies, the Disasters Emergency Committee is raising money to fund work happening on the ground and saving lives.

DEC member charities and their Indonesian partners are working closely with national authorities to provide food, clean water, first aid and shelter, while helping survivors to cope with the trauma of the last few days.

As the full scale of devastation unfolds, they are ready to do even more, and with your help, support devastated communities in rebuilding their lives.

£30 could provide emergency shelter for one family.
£50 could provide a family with food for a month.
£100 could help build toilet and washing facilities for a family.

Let’s save the survivors. A 400-mile-an-hour tsunami also kills slowly.
