On Saturday (12/22/2018) at 9:27 p.m. local time, a tsunami struck the coastal areas of Indonesia’s Sunda Strait. The tsunami was caused by an abnormal tidal wave surge due to a full moon and an underwater landslide following the eruption of the Anak Krakatau volcano.

Based on the latest information from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), as of 31 December 2018 at 13:30 local time, the death toll has reached 437, with 14,059 people injured, 16 people missing, and 33,719 people sought safety and shelter away from their houses.

Pandeglang regency in Banten, a popular tourist destination, was the worst-hit area. Other regencies hit by the tsunami are Serang in Banten and South Lampung in Lampung. In the latter, the four worst-hit sub-districts are Kalianda, Rajabasa, Sidomulyo and Katibung.

Hello all. We still need your help to donate.

With so many homes destroyed and the rainy season set to continue until March, shelter and sanitation are still top priority following the tsunami that striked Sunda Strait in December 2018. The death toll reached 437 and more than 40,000 people are displaced. Many of them still living in evacuation centers around the area. They still don't know when they can rebuild their life. Authorities says that it will take two more months to build temporary housing units for the displaced. Worsening sanitation also causing serious health concerns with so many people crowding small emergency buildings.

To give you a closer look on how it is over there one month after the tsunami wiped out Sunda Strait on December 22, 2018, please click on this link from NHK World: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/videos/20190122211636384/

We are about to send 100% of your donation to PMI Indonesia who will then use it to help the survivors with sanitation/emergency kits and temporary shelters. Thank you so much to those who have donated. To those who haven't, please help us do this by donating whatever amount you wish. Every dollar counts.

Thank you and may God bless us all.
