Earthquake Hits Java

A 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Java on Monday 21st November.

The Cianjur region of West Java, 45 miles southeast of Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta was the epicenter.

Currently there are estimated to be more than 268 deaths with many more injured.

Many hundreds of buildings have been damaged or destroyed with huge numbers of homeless.

Disaster Aid Australia has been in touch with our local partner through the COVID pandemic, the Rotary Club of Bandung Pakuan.

At the moment their main efforts are feeding the poor, especially the children, although long term help will be required for rebuilding..
