Devastating Earthquake Strikes Indonesia

On Monday, November 21, a devastating earthquake struck the populous province of Java. More than 200 people have been killed and thousands more injured, with many reported missing. According to officials, more than 22,000 homes have been destroyed, leaving 58,000 or so people displaced from their homes.

Islamic Relief has deployed its emergency response team and is working with local partners to distribute immediate needs on the ground, including tarpaulin for shelter. Hygiene kits and other essential non-food items will also be distributed as needs are assessed.

Focus on Indonesia

Indonesia is the world’s largest island country and regularly faces the hardship of natural disasters including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and the effects of climate change. On average, at least one major natural disaster has occurred in Indonesia every month since the tsunami in 2004.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Indonesia

Islamic Relief efforts in Indonesia began in 2000 and continue to this day.

A few interventions include:

  • Food aid
  • Access to education for children in need
  • Emergency response and livelihood support for natural disasters and the effects of climate change
