Indonesia Earthquake & Tsunami - Urgent Help Needed

MAP International's Disaster Response Team is working to help people in need whose lives were decimated by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Indonesia.

MAP’s Indonesian partner, Yayasan Internasional, operates a mobile clinic that provides medication and health care access to remote islands.  MAP is supporting Yayasan's efforts to relieve suffering and prevent disease in the region.

Yayasan's mobile clinic travels between Indonesian islands to reach populations that would otherwise not have access to life-saving and life-changing medicines.

Yayasan has been operating its mobile clinic near Sigi, Central Sulawesi, an area 170 miles south of Palu City.

According to news reports, thousands of people in one village in Sigi are believed to have been killed or injured by a phenomenon known as liquefaction, where the solid soil turns to liquid when under stress such as shaking during an earthquake. Locally this is become known as a “land tsunami."
