The victims of the terrible tsunami that struck Indonesia are counting on your support
The earthquake and tsunami that struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on 28 September have left a huge devastation behind. More than a thousand people have died, more than 60,000 have lost their homes and several hundred thousand are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. This assessment is still provisional. The full extent of the damage is yet to be determined.

Reconstruction and rehabilitation
In a second phase it is about helping the affected people to recover from the disaster. It is important for them to be able to earn an income again as quickly as possible and to take on a more or less normal life.
But we will also finance projects to help the affected people repair or rebuild their homes. These should be earthquake-proof and offer protection and shelter.
«Swiss Solidarity works with Swiss NGOs, each of which has one or more operational and reliable Indonesian partners. The role of Swiss humanitarian organisations remains important: they know their local partners, they support them with financial, technical and advisory resources. They also monitor activities to ensure the proper use of donations.»
