HELP CHILDREN AFFECTED BY
THE TSUNAMI IN INDONESIA
Donate to protect children today
Help keep children safe in Indonesia
Right now children in Indonesia are in danger after an earthquake and devastating tsunami. Over 1,500 people have been reported killed and many thousands are severely affected.
Search and rescue efforts continue as teams search for survivors under collapsed buildings. When the 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Sulawesi on Friday 29th September, it triggered a tsunami with waves of up to 6 metres high.
Children affected by disasters like this urgently need life-saving support and supplies, such as clean water, to stop the spread of deadly diseases and prevent further loss of life.
How will my donation help children?
Unicef is helping the government in Indonesia to provide life-saving supplies and services to affected children and families.
Unicef is especially concerned for the safety and wellbeing of children who have lost their homes, those who are sleeping rough, and those who have been separated from their families. We’re helping to reunite families, and are supporting the deployment and training of social workers who can provide psychosocial services and support to separated and unaccompanied children.
Children also face extra risks to their health without nutritious food and clean water. Unicef is working closely with the government to support vulnerable children.
We urgently need your help so that we can reach every child that needs us.
When disasters strike, Unicef is ready to respond with whatever children need to survive and to help them rebuild their lives.
By donating today, you can help us respond for children and families with life-saving support. Please donate now.
If you’re in the UK and would prefer to make a donation by phone, you can call our dedicated donation line: 0300 034 9993.
In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will go to support the ongoing response to earlier earthquakes in Lombok, Indonesia.
