Meet our Indonesia earthquake response team
We’ve watched with horror as the number of Indonesians killed, injured and displaced by the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in the Palu district has climbed even higher. In spite of impassable roads, risk of landslides and fuel shortages, some of our most experienced emergency team members are on the ground working tirelessly to help families and children affected by this disaster.
Getting survivors access to safe water and sanitation resources is our highest priority as deadly diseases become fatal risks in crowded camps filled with those who have lost their homes. Mercy Corps’ Indonesia team is also continuing their response to the earthquake in Lombok, which displaced 20,000 people in August of this year.
We’d like to introduce you to some of the members of this amazing team who, with your support, are focused on helping devastated Indonesians survive and recover:
