Indonesia was hit with repeated natural disasters in 2018, including multiple earthquakes on the island of Lombok and a tsunami on the island of Sulawesi that killed more than 2,000 people and displaced 130,000. Natural disaster is a constant threat in this part of the world — Asia experienced more than 400 natural disasters in the region last year, which affected 27 million people.

We were on the ground following the Sulawesi tsunami, distributing solar lanterns, hygiene kits, cooking kits, shelter kits, cleaning kits, and safe drinking water. Our work with farmers is helping them grow more food and strengthen their families in the face of climate change.

We are currently responding to urgent humanitarian needs in more than 40 countries around the globe, including Indonesia, Guatemala, Somalia, Yemen and beyond. Give now to help our teams around the world and provide a lifeline for people during their most desperate time of need.

Our ability to respond to crises around the world with speed and effectiveness depends on your support.
