Preparing for emergencies
At least 40% of Indonesians live in areas prone to natural disasters. We're working with the government to ensure communities are well prepared for emergencies.
Our programmes help people understand the risks, and develop and rehearse disaster response plans. We also ensure that emergency response is included in school teaching and that children are involved in drawing up plans.
When a crisis does happen, our teams are ready to send help immediately. We've launched responses to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2006 earthquakes in central Java, the 2009 earthquake in West Sumatra, the 2018 Sulawesi tsunami and 2022 Cianjur earthquake. We've also deployed local responses to small-scale disasters. Donate to help us reach children quickly.
