Tsunami hits Indonesia – All We Can responds

All We Can and The Methodist Church in Britain are supporting the people of Indonesia, following the destruction caused to coastal villages of the Sunda Strait in Indonesia on 22 December 2018.


On 22 December 2018, a tsunami, believed to be caused by undersea landslides triggered by the new eruptions of the Anak Krakatau volcano, crashed into villages on the strait that separates the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra. This tsunami wave destroyed buildings and homes along the coast. Hundreds of people are injured, and the death toll continues to rise as the full scale of the disaster becomes clear.

All We Can, through its trusted humanitarian partners, is already delivering humanitarian aid to communities in the Sulawesi province of Indonesia that were devastated by an earthquake and tsunami in late September 2018. It is now committed to working with those organisations to understand the scale of this new disaster to determine the emergency response required.

Donations given to this appeal will help provide vital assistance to families and communities who have lost everything in this tsunami and desperately require medical treatment, food and shelter.
