Crowded into makeshift shelters, Indonesian Christians who survived the Sulawesi earthquake urgently need food, baby formula, blankets and tents.
A powerful earthquake struck Indonesia two weeks ago, on Friday, January 15, with the island of Sulawesi taking the brunt of the 6.2 magnitude quake. At least 84 people died, and many thousands were left homeless in the regencies of Majene and Mamuju. The previous day a 5.9 magnitude tremor had rocked the same area.
The government emergency response and aid for the survivors is inadequate and is scheduled to cease altogether on February 8. Some of the makeshift camps received no help at all for days after the quake.
Homeless, Hungry Christians Need Your Help
The population of Mamuju is about 16% Christian, and the earthquake has destroyed church buildings as well as many Christian homes, leaving our brothers and sisters in urgent need of humanitarian aid.
Desperate Indonesian pastors are pleading with Barnabas Aid for tents, blankets, food and baby formula for their homeless church members.
