Indonesia:

All We Can and the Methodist Church launch urgent appeal:
Suggest all churches in the circuit consider an emergency offering to support the work of 'All We Can" as they work to alleviate the suffering and need in Indonesia.

All We Can and The Methodist Church in Britain are calling for generous support for this urgent appeal for the people of Indonesia, following the destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami on Sulawesi.

People who have lost everything are in desperate need of water, food, shelter and access to medical care.

On Friday 28 September, a deadly earthquake struck Indonesia which triggered a tsunami. Waves more than three metres high swept across the land destroying almost everything in their wake.

Conditions in the devastated area are extremely difficult. The tsunami tore up roads, washed away homes and cut off lines of communication.

Hundreds of people have lost their lives, at least 42,000 people are displaced and more than 1.5 million have been affected. Urgent supplies of food, water, shelter and medical treatment are needed now.
