2018 Earthquakes In Indonesia

Indonesia Earthquake – Island of Sulawesi (September 2018)

The country barely even recovered from the devastated earthquake of August 2018, which hit the Island of Lombok. Another power earthquake combined with tsunami rocked the country and took the damage to another scale. The earthquake and tsunami has caused the devastation everywhere, houses destroyed, buildings collapsed and with death toll in thousands. The situation is very desperate.

Indonesia Earthquake – Island of Lombok (August 2018)

In August 2018, a devastating 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Lombok.

Being located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Indonesia has suffered two earthquakes in quick succession in the past weeks, costing hundreds of lives on the island of Lombok and on neighbouring islands. Sadly, these numbers are rapidly increasing.

This powerful earthquake caused damage to thousands of buildings. Power outages, a lack of equipment and a lack of phone reception in some areas created even more difficulties for the rescue teams.

The Effects of Indonesian Earthquake

In the space of two months in August and September 2018, Indonesia has been struck by two powerful earthquakes.

Hundreds of people lost their lives due to earthquake, but tsunami took the death toll into thousands. Over 30,000 people have been made homeless. The effects of the Indonesia earthquake were also felt on the neighbouring islands of Bali and Gili.

U4h Indonesia Earthquake appeal aims to reach the worst effected areas. Rescue teams’s concentration tends to be more in the cities and its the remote villages and towns suffer the most from natural disasters.

Damage Caused By August 2018 Earthquake

This August 2018 Indonesian earthquake was struck just 10km underground, and was followed by a series of strong aftershocks, prompting many to spend the night under the open sky. With shortage of food, water and medication the estimated number of victims will rise.

The Indonesian quake has caused extensive damage in the north of Lombok. A mosque was collapsed during the evening prayer time and it believed that most of the worshipers were buried alive. Lack of heavy equipment and difficulty in reaching the remote parts of the island has caused excessive amount of delay in the rescue efforts.

Some of the worst affected areas still haven’t been reached. The recovery process will be a long-term process due to collapsed bridges, electricity blackouts and damaged roads blocked with debris. This is why it is extremely important to support this ongoing cause and help the Indonesian people through Indonesia Earthquake appeal.

Unite 4 Humanity On The Ground

Unite 4 Humanity has been providing aid work in Africa, Pakistan, Middle East and Bangladesh since 2012. We have successfully completed numerous projects and have many charity projects in the pipeline for the coming months and years.

But

Right now, we are on the ground building local links within the Indonesian affected communities. We realise the importance of stepping up the aid efforts. Therefore, the links we build with the local volunteers and rescue personnel will speed up the process of erecting more temporary shelters for the tens of thousands left homeless on Lombok.

Through the Indonesia Earthquake appeal we’ll distribute food and medical supplies on ground.

Indonesia Earthquake Appeal – Our Trustee’s Story

Ahmed travelled to Indonesia in late July 2018 for a well-deserved summer holiday. Only to find himself amid a terrifying earthquake.

“I saw people fleeing for their lives, screaming for help, it was very traumatic.”

Ahmed was stranded on the island, unable to leave he felt he had to do something.

He immediately made contact with the Unite 4 Humanity team asking for rapid aid response to the Island.

He told the team that the earthquake has destroyed homes and livelihoods – all flattened to the ground in 10 seconds.

Ahmed’s fear was that relief would reach the main tourist resort areas, but the remote areas would remain neglected. Therefore, we need to focus our efforts on delivering aid to the poor and needy people of these isolated areas.

We Need This Aid – Right Now!

As mentioned above the news of Indonesian Earthquake has gone off the TV screens and social media. But the damage and carnage left by this earthquake is still there.

Proper shelters are still required for families and vulnerable residents, in affect most the areas need rebuilding. Thousands of homes and buildings destroyed or damage by the earthquake and tsunami are too dangerous to back to.

Hundreds of families have been left homeless by these natural disasters. They are in desperate need of shelter, clean water, food and medicine. Respiratory illnesses become the biggest danger to the communities in these situations. Most of these diseases come from contaminated water.

Indonesia Earthquake Appeal is already catering for such needs, but the need is much greater. We must dig deeper and help these victims.

Alhamdullilah, due to our continuous response, aid will continue to reach the isolated areas for many months and years to come. In sha Allah.

Our Indonesia Earthquake Appeal volunteers are always on call to provide families with temporary shelters, food and medical supplies.

The situation is still desperate on the ground. Please donate generously to the Indonesia Earthquake Appeal.

History Of Earthquakes In Indonesia

Earthquakes are probably the biggest threat in terms of natural disasters in Indonesia as they come suddenly and can strike in populous areas, such as the bigger cities.

Earthquakes with a magnitude of around five or six on Richter Scale in Indonesia but usually cause no, or little, damage.

When the magnitude of the quake becomes more than seven on the scale of Richter, an earthquake can potentially do a lot of damage.

On average, Indonesia experiences about one earthquake per year with a magnitude of seven, or higher, that causes casualties as well as damage to the infrastructure or environment.

The majority of large earthquakes occur on or near Earth’s tectonic plate boundaries.

On several occasions during the past 20 years, Indonesia has made global headlines due to devastating natural disasters that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of human and animal lives, plus having a destructive effect on the land area (including infrastructure, and thus resulting in economic costs).

Indonesia As A Country

With 18,307 islands and stretching 5,120 kilometres from east to west, Indonesia is famous for it’s natural beauty. It has 139 volcanoes, the third most volcanoes in the world. With 261.1m people calling Indonesia home.

Indonesia is famous for it’s temples, volcanoes and beaches. It’s an archipelago of islands, which embraces culture, food and experiences every time you switch islands, with perfect beaches and encounter smiling faces walking through villages where traditional Islamic life is every day life.

Although, Indonesia has six recognized religions, but it has the largest Muslim population in the world.
