Support the Indonesia Tsunami Appeal to help those in need.

At least 281 people have been killed and 1,016 injured after a tsunami hit coastal towns and tourist beach resorts on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.

The giant tidal waves, triggered by a volcanic eruption, struck without warning on Saturday night, uprooting trees, damaging buildings and roads, and destroying more than 550 homes. 

Our local partner Yakkum Emergency Unit (YEU) has already deployed a crisis team, including a doctor and a nurse, to help communities affected by the disaster.

The team is providing emergency medical relief and assessing the situation in Rajabasa village, Lampung province, so that Christian Aid can respond to the urgent needs of local people.

As our partners work to save lives on the ground, we need your help. 

Please donate to our Indonesia Tsunami Appeal today. All funds donated will be used to support tsunami relief efforts in Indonesia.
