DEC Indonesia Tsunami Appeal

On Friday 28th 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 1,300 people have died and hundreds of thousands of survivors are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

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.

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

All of the DEC’s broadcast partners, including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, and others have now agreed to support the DEC Indonesia Tsunami Appeal. Community radio stations, hospital radio, prison radio, and Internet radio stations may all participate in the Appeal.
