On September 28, 2018 Central Sulawesi in Indonesia was hit by a 7.4 magnitude earthquake, which resulted in a tsunami and later a volcanic eruption. The death toll is more than 1,700 and as many as 62,600 persons are displalced. The dire situation is further compounded with the rainy season approaching with the anticipation of diseases, which are easily spread in shelters.

PDA is working through our partners in ACT Alliance to provide emergency assistance. Priorities are minimizing loss of life and to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable are covered first.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, through our partners on the ground, is responding to this disaster. Designate gifts to DR000146 to support this response
