TRAGEDIES IN INDONESIA

Indonesia has been affected by many natural disasters recently - including
the flood and landslide in Papua, the tsunami in Mentawai and the eruption
of Merapi - and we are collecting funds to help the people most affected by
these tragedies.

OUR SUPPORT FOR THE MERAPI VICTIMS

Since many villages around Merapi are affected, SD Indonesia is working with
a range of institutions to help the victims and we appreciate that many
volunteers have been helping victims too.

For the Emergency Relief, SD Indonesia has been distributed to Merapi
victims in the form of daily need items such as milk, soap, toothpaste,
shampoo, blankets, sanitary napkins and clothes.

OUR FUTURE PLANS

We are currently planning a recovery program called the 'Children 4 Care
program', which will involve collecting toys and books for the youngest
victims of the disasters in Mentawai, West Sumatra and Merapi in Central
Java.

If there is funding available later, SD Indonesia hopes to implement a clean
water program at several locations in collaboration with the SkyJuice
Foundation from Australia. We will conduct needs analysis surveys and
coordinate customs clearance to import the equipment. We will also construct
the tower and tank using manpower from the local community and prepare
training on the system’s maintenance. SkyJuice will provide the equipment
and technical expertise for its installation.

The fund can be channeled through:
