Lombok earthquakes, Indonesia
On Sunday 29 July 2018, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck just off the coast of Lombok Island, to the east of Bali in Indonesia.
This was followed by a 7-magnitude earthquake on 5 August, two further quakes on 19 August and more than 700 aftershocks.
More than 3.5 million people have been affected by these earthquakes, which have also been felt on nearby Bali and Gili islands.
The current official estimate for the number of lives lost stands at over 500. Hundreds more people are injured and more than 430,000 displaced, as thousands of homes and other buildings were destroyed or damaged.
World Vision Indonesia (Wahana Visi Indonesia) has been among the first to respond. We have delivered emergency kits to families, set up temporary kitchens and established child friendly spaces for more than 700 children.
