Sunda Strait Tsunami

On Saturday, December 22, 2018, a Tsunami devastated the coasts of Sumatra and Java, believed to be caused by the erupting Anak Krakatau Volcano in the Sunda Strait.  Nearly 500 people are reported dead with about 150 more still missing and more than 3,000 injured.  Thousands of people have been displaced and people are being warned to stay away from the coast as eruptions of Anak Krakatau volcano continue.  Hidaya is in touch with our volunteers on the ground who are actively helping with the humanitarian efforts.


Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami

On Friday, September 28, 2018, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake off of Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island caused mass destruction in the region, and triggered a devastating tsunami.  The death toll is in the thousands and expected to rise as countless people have been buried by collapsed buildings and mud flows or washed away by tsunami waves.  Emergency rescue crews struggle to reach affected areas as many roads have been destroyed and areas have become cut-off.  Hundreds of thousands of people are in very dire circumstances as they have lost their homes, livelihood, and loved ones and are in desperate need for help.
