Indonesia Tsunami 

On the 22nd of December 2018 a tsunami hit Banten and Lampung provinces in Indonesia. This was the second tsunami to hit Indonesia in the space of around 3 months, after the 7.4 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit the island of Sulawesi earlier in the year. 

Oxfam’s work

Working with partners, Oxfam reached more than 200,000 people with assistance; we distributed hygiene kits widely, and worked with hard-hit communities for more complex interventions, like installing and repairing water systems and distributing cash. More than 100,000 people were reached within the first 3 months after the December earthquake. 

None of this was possible without your support. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for helping to save lives in Sulawesi.
