World Vision has been working in Indonesia since the 1960s and has local staff and long-standing programs in the region.
World Vision Indonesia is working closely with local partners to respond to the damage and provide emergency aid. This assistance includes:
distributing food and providing clean water and emergency toilets
- providing shelter and hygiene items including blankets, soap and tarpaulins
- working with local health workers to halt the spread of disease
- setting up safe spaces where children can play, learn and receive specialist support
The aim is to reach 15,000 people with a planned nine-month response period.
