Bishops’ Appeal response to tsunami in Indonesia

Bishops’ Appeal response to tsunami in Indonesia

Friday 05 October 2018

The earthquake which hit the island of Sulawesi last Friday morning, causing a tsunami and around 170 aftershocks, is the most devastating earthquake to hit Indonesia since 2004.

Bishops’ Appeal is acting as a conduit for funds which will be directed to agencies to aid emergency relief efforts on the ground. However, we would urge parishes and individuals not to divert Harvest giving as there are many communities awaiting funding for life saving projects across the globe. For example, refugee training and trauma support centres in Lebanon and Iraq and access to safe water for schools and communities in Uganda.

All information on giving can be found at the ‘Give’ section of the Bishops’ Appeal website here.
