Earthquake & Tsunami @Indonesia

$13,440 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 324 people in 18 days
In the evening of September 28, Palu City, Central Sulawesi of Indonesia was struck by a major natural disaster. An earthquake of 7.7 magnitude that led to a 3-meter high tsunami hit the city and its surrounding, destructing all buildings and washing everything that is in its way. As for right now, at least 384 people are confirmed dead, and countless are still missing.

The Indonesian Student Association in the U.S. (Permias Nasional), which is now registered as a 501(c)(3) NGO,  is deeply concerned with this tragedy and will help our brothers and sisters that are in great needs. We do need your support, to help us raise funds that will be donated to the people of Central Sulawesi. 





Funding will be allocated for the recovery of Central Sulawesi. We will also partner with local organizations in Indonesia that are already helping with the process of evacuation in the city as we speak.

Please continue praying for the evacuation process and recovery of Central Sulawesi.

*As a registered NGO, we will make sure that donations are fully and properly allocated to help Central Sulawesi. Our publication team will also create a short video to prove that this campaign brings hope to those who are affected.*

It has been two weeks since the earthquake and tsunami destructed the city of Palu. As for right now, all support/help from different organizations is directed to the trauma relief stage. This is also where Permias Nasional would focus on using our funds.
We have decided to allocate our funds to two different local NGO's; Rumah Yatim Foundation and Second Chance Initiative Organization, both having an Indonesian NGO license. We believe that by allocating the funds to two different organization, each with different aspects and focus, the funds would impact and reach a wider group of people. Rumah Yatim Foundation focuses on fulfilling the basic needs such as hygiene kit, clothing, and tents, whereas Second Chance Initiative will fulfill their medical needs.

We would like to express our gratitude to those who have participated in this campaign. Further updated will be posted, stay tuned.
Thank you very much, may God bless you.
