BOGOR, Indonesia – The 7.5 magnitude earthquake that happened a few kilometers off the central island of Sulawesi, Indonesia last September 28 has set off a subsequent tsunami that engulfed the coastal city of Palu. To date, more than 1,200 people have been confirmed killed because of the tsunami, with thousands more in need of relief and rescue.

Government and civil society organizations have been mobilizing support for aid for the survivors. Underlining the growing sense of urgency, NTFP-EP Indonesia and its network are organizing relief efforts for its partner communities in Palu. Currently, we have arranged means to provide financial support to the city. Bank details are the following:
