Support Joe's free haircuts for Sulawesi Refugees

In September 2018 a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, killing thousands, and making over 200,000 people refugees overnight. 

Joe lived in Palu, an area hardest hit by the earthquake, where extreme liquefaction destroyed much of the city overnight. Joe has spent the last six months fundraising to buy supplies of food and other staples, then delivering them to refugee camps.

Joe also undertook a short barber course, and opened a small barber shop in Palu, giving free haircuts to refugees of the Sulawesi crisis. 

Joe now wants to dedicate even more of his time to helping refugees in Palu, going camp to camp, dropping off important supplies and giving free haircuts to the refugees. 

With $3,000 we can help Joe live for a whole year, travel from camp to camp, and bring important supplies, his infectious smile, and a free haircut to refugees. 

We are so proud of our friend Joe and want to make sure he can continue doing his selfless and kind work for another year.

Thank you for your donation. No matter small your contribution, know it will make a massive difference to Joe's efforts to help improve the lives of refugees in Sulawesi.
