Indonesia Earthquake in Sumatra

Americares is responding to the deadly earthquake that struck Sumatra in the island nation of Indonesia in March of this year. We are supporting long-time partner Yayasan Kerti Praja (YKP) with a grant that will allow the organization to procure equipment and basic essential drugs for pregnant women and women in delivery to be distributed to the selected health facilities in the areas affected by the disaster. We are working with our long-time emergency response consultant in Indonesia to manage the assistance over a 5-month period. Volcano and Earthquake activity is common in the islands of Indonesia situated in the “Ring of Fire.” Americares has responded to many natural disasters in Indonesia over the years going back to the Southeast Asia Tsunami in 2004.
