Banjarnegara Landslide Disaster Urgent Appeal
Update (February 2015): Thank you for your contributions! We have raised a total of $1,000 from both online donations through our website and mail donations via check or wire transfer. We are transferring the donations to Cerdas Foundation, who will transfer it to either the Indonesian Red Cross or other humanitarian Indonesian NGOs.
On Friday, December 12, 2014, a deadly landslide struck off the mountainous area of Banjarnegara District in Central Java, Indonesia. Heavy rains triggered a huge landslide of mud, rocks and trees that wiped out over 100 houses in and near Sampang Village and displaced more than 500 people. The Jakarta Globe reported at least 83 people dead. Actual figures are likely to grow higher.
CERDAS Foundation and Indonesia Diaspora Foundation (IDF) are mobilizing efforts to provide support and relief to those impacted by the disasters. CERDAS & IDF are collaborating with Indonesian-based humanitarian organizations with access to the affected areas to bring timely and effective relief to the victims.
We are accepting donations until Wednesday, December 31, 2014. Please send your contribution today. Every little bit helps. You can make your donation here through PayPal (PayPal takes 2-4% of your donation). Please indicate that you are contributing for the Landslide Urgent Appeal.
You can also send a check made out to CERDAS Foundation or Indonesian Diaspora Foundation – please make a note specifying that the donation is for the Banjarnegara Landslide Urgent Appeal
