Help save Indonesian earthquake survivors

type:Crowd Funding, Donation
by:Yair Oded

In the past three months, Indonesia has suffered a wave of catastrophic earthquakes, with a series of four hitting in late July and early August, killing hundreds of people and injuring thousands, and a deadly 7.5 earthquake and Tsunami hitting on September 28th, resulting in over 2,000 deaths.

Although news coverage of the battered country has waned, Indonesians still face a dire and urgent humanitarian crisis, with thousands injured, 1.5 million affected by the devastation, and more than 300,000 internally displaced and lacking shelter.

According to Worldvision.org, “The people affected by Indonesia’s 2018 earthquakes will need help for years as they rebuild their lives, homes, and communities.”

As the country grapples to deal with the crisis, hundreds of shocks continue to rattle the Indonesian islands, making the recovery process even harder.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched by the Lombok Earthquake Relief Fund to gather donations for the victims of the earthquakes in Indonesia. Please consider helping this local organisation as it endeavors to save the lives of survivors and acquire supplies.
