In September 2018 an earthquake shook the Sulawesi region followed by a 6m high Tsunami Wave which hit Palu.
The combined effects of the two disasters led to the immediate deaths of an estimated 4,340 people with tens of thousand at risk due to contaminated water and homeless.
Emergency Shelter Packs
Initially our partner Disaster Aid Malaysia deployed emergency shelter packs assisted by the Malaysia Government who provided air transport.
Disaster Aid Australia and Disaster Aid UK & Ireland DARTs installed 8 SkyHydrants to communities around the Palu area
These are now providing safe drinking water to thousands of people.
