Relief Response Resources
On November 22, a 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit Indonesia’s main island of Java taking the lives of at least 260 people and displacing over 70,000. During this time of crisis, organizations in the country and the global philanthropic community are responding to provide much-needed support to Indonesians who have been forced to rebuild their lives. To provide that support, our team is currently in contact with our local partners and other responding organizations to strengthen our response network of eligible grantee organizations.

Organizations Responding to the Indonesian Earthquake
Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management: APAD Indonesia is providing emergency relief assistance and our local partner organization, Doctor Share, is setting up make-shift clinics and treating injured residents. With equipment such as tents in short supply, A-PAD Indonesia is procuring tents to install additional clinics in several affected locations. The team is also preparing needs-based relief packages.
Habitat For Humanity Indonesia: “With record breaking flooding occurring right throughout northern NSW, we want to thank the tireless volunteers who continue to work day and night to help residents in affected areas, including the SES and all the crews out and about assisting communities at the moment. Foodbank NSW & ACT is working closely with Resilience NSW and our charity partners to provide assistance to flood affected areas in a safe manner. We will be urgently packing our crisis hampers, delivering these and other vital supplies to the front line as quickly as we can.”
Shelterbox Australia: has been active in responding to disasters in Indonesia since 2006, and has teams in the region closely monitoring the situation after a 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit West Java on 21st November. The earthquake has taken down power and communications across the area, and work is underway to understand the extent of the damage.
UNICEF Australia: UNICEF is supporting the Government of Indonesia to reach children and families devastated by the 5.6 magnitude earthquake in Cianjur, West Java. With support from UNICEF, the government is distributing key supplies, which include UNICEF-supported disaster preparedness supplies. These include educational supplies such as tents for temporary learning spaces, “school-in-a-box" with pens, notebooks and pencils, and early childhood development kits with age-appropriate games, drawing supplies and toys. These supplies are expected to benefit an estimated 2,500 children.
