Uniting World Indonesian Tsunami Appeal
You will have seen in the news that the cities of Palu and Donggala in Central Sulawesi were hit by a magnitude 7.4 earthquake. The earthquake triggered a tsunami along coastal areas in Palu, killing 1,234 people and displacing roughly 50,000 from their homes.
The event has been very personal for us. UnitingWorld staff and our partners in Indonesia have lost friends and loved ones.
More than 4000 vulnerable people in Central Sulawesi who are clients of a microfinance project supported by our partners, Tanaoba Lais Manekat (TLM), have been affected by the disaster. TLM are in the process of evacuating their team there but it will be some months before they are able to locate and assess the impact on the people they serve.
Our Southeast Asia Regional Office staff have lost family members and are waiting for news from friends.
Friends, we are asking you to pray for our staff and partners during this time. We are walking with them as they assess the impact and determine how they are best placed to serve.
If one part of the body suffers, all suffer together with it – 1 Corinthians 12:26
