INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
A devastating earthquake hit the mountainous region in West Java, Indonesia, on 21st November 2022. More than 268 lives have been lost, including many schoolchildren. Rescue operations are underway to reach those trapped under the rubble.
The 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit the Cianjur region at a depth of 6.2 miles, followed by 25 aftershocks. Landslides have hampered the rescue efforts, and the death toll is expected to rise. Hundreds of people are left struggling in this state of emergency.
Indonesia Needs You Today
According to statistics, 2200 homes have been lost due to the deadliest earthquake of 2022 on Indonesian soil. In addition, 13,000 people have been displaced, and an entire village is currently buried under the debris.
The impact of the catastrophe has multiplied manifold due to the shorter depth of the earthquake and its proximity to land. While the country rests on the Pacific Ring of Fire and is prone to earthquakes throughout the year, nothing prepares a country for an emergency like this!
The injured have been rushed in and out of medical centres due to the fear of collapse during the after-shocks. Most buildings have been evacuated, and vulnerable families have been forced into tents for survival. They need your help more than ever before.
