A tsunami was triggered by a powerful earthquake in Sulawesi, Indonesia, at the end of September 2019, leaving a trail of destruction.
Over 2,000 people were killed and thousands more injured. Those who survived had their lives ripped apart. Six-metre-high waves flattened whole coastal towns, wiping out thousands of homes and schools.
With homes, water supplies and vital infrastructure shattered, thousands of families were exposed to the elements, left without clean water and put at heightened risk of disease.
Thanks to your incredible generosity, in those critical first few days we gained access to Sulawesi and reached almost 6,500 people with life-saving support.
Our teams provided families with vital healthcare, shelter, water and hygiene supplies. We've set up clinics, erected temporary schools and provided shelter. We reached 189,466 people, roughly half of them children. You made this vital work possible.
