Helping Hand For Relief and Development (HHRD) has several programs throughout Indonesia with our vetted partner NGOs. A few of the programs we operate are Orphan Support, Water and Sanitation, Water For Life, and Seasonal projects that help local Indonesian refugees. Unfortunately, Indonesia has been hit by a 6.2 magnitude earthquake, and HHRD has begun deploying our resources to help those in need.

However, this is not the first time HHRD has responded to earthquakes in this area. In 2018, we responded to two major earthquakes that hit Sulawesi by partnering with our vetted NGOs and meeting the needs of the elderly, children, and victims of the earthquake. After the earthquake hit, our teams worked with local officials to help provide and distribute food, water, medicine and help set up shelters for the victims.

HHRD has begun distributing essential items to the families who were impacted by the disastrous 6.2 magnitude earthquake that hit the West Sulawesi province in Indonesia. This earthquake killed over 92 people and injured 3000. Officials predict the number of deaths and injuries will sadly continue to grow due to a cut off of information from that area. There are estimates that close to 30,000 individuals have been temporarily placed in 10 evacuation shelters.

We have launched Emergency Relief efforts in Indonesia to provide individuals with water, food, medicine, and shelter. Thanks to our vetted partner NGO, they were able to send in team members with the help of volunteers as well as local authorities who can help with search and rescues efforts in Indonesia. The teams have also been able to establish a food and water center as well as give citizens access to cell phone charging stations.

While the rescue and cleanup efforts have been progressing, unfortunately, there is still much work to be done. There is a massive demand for meals, facemasks, and clean water in this area to support the on-going efforts. Many families are now homeless with nothing to their name beside the clothing they are wearing. These are people who desperately need help were put in this situation at no fault of their own.

There has been a substantial amount of damage inflicted on the region. According to the UN Office for Coordination Of Humanitarian Affairs, there are reports of heavy destruction in the City of Majene, specifically a five-story Hospital. Many other buildings were also damaged including a mall, hotels, a health center, a bridge, roads and over 300 homes. Communications from this region have also been limited to the damage. HHRD has continued to deploy resources with its partners to aid those in need in Indonesia.
