ADRA is currently responding to the recent flooding in Townsville and the tsunami in Indonesia. Donate below and enable us to help right away when disasters occur.
Deadly disasters often strike without warning, affecting the most vulnerable people least able to cope. With such a strong global presence across more than 130 countries, ADRA’s network is well-placed to help in times of need. When people need us, we’re already there. ADRA has a strong record responding to mega disasters, like the recent cyclones in Tonga, the Australian droughts, and the Indonesian tsunami.
By donating before a disaster hits, you’re ensuring ADRA is in the best position so that we’re ready to help right away. Our work includes not only immediate disaster relief, but also longer-term recovery and disaster risk reduction activities.
The Indonesian tsunami has washed away thousands of homes, forcing people to rely on resettlement camps.
Cyclone Gita rocked Tonga in February 2018, causing nearly $190 million USD of damage.
In late September 2018, the Indonesian island that Eliwati called home was struck by a devastating 7.5 magnitude earthquake, triggering a subsequent tsunami. Eliwati’s family of five are lucky: their home, excepting the kitchen, withstood the earthquake. But while Eliwati has shelter, the earthquake destroyed the pipes that provide her village with water.
Fortunately, this is when ADRA arrived on the ground, providing crucial water to families and villages. “ADRA came and helped,” Eliwati says, “so we have the clean water we use for drinking and cooking!”
