New Relief Missions and Housing

07 May 2019

In March and April 2019, new relief missions were dispatched to the Indonesian Island of Lombok to address needs faced by victims of the earthquake in August last year. Many families were still displaced and living in temporary shelters with various unmet needs. Al-Imdaad Foundation teams have continued to address their water, food, and shelter needs with a varied programme overseen by our Indonesian office. Our special earthquake safe light weight housing is also progressing steadily with more than 70 homes already built for affected communities. The houses provide comfortable, safe and economical living arrangements for families living in the earthquake prone zone. THESE ACTIVITIES ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY THE SUPPORT OF DONORS

Teams on the ground in Lombok

14 Aug 2018

Current Conditions facing IDPs

07 Aug 2018

Displaced families are currently in very difficult conditions. Many are staying in tents, some, of their own construction. Other are staying in large communal tents with open sides that offer limited protection against the elements. The nights are currently quite cool especially in the coastal north, where the wind can pick up quite strongly. Clean water is also in limited supply in many areas and there are limitations on delivery due to damaged roads, bridges and destruction caused by mudslides. Personal hygiene items are also in short supply as many families left their homes in a rush without taking anything. Women and infant’s sanitary items are also greatly needed. Food and medicines are also in short supply for displaced camp dwellers due to slow access to badly affected areas. Clothing is also needed as many families left home with only the clothes on their backs and had their houses subsequently destroyed. The Al-Imdaad Foundation is providing emergency relief items including food and clean water supplies and is keeping up to date with other needs as they develop.

Details of Lombok Earthquake

07 Aug 2018

Lombok is originally the name of an Island in the Nusa Tengarra Barat (NTB) province of Indonesia which consists of two large Islands (Lombok and Bali) and two smaller ones. Lombok Island is divided into four districts of which the Northern District is the worst affected. This district was the site of the epicentre and is also home to some of the poorest residents of Lombok who have the most poorly constructed homes. The poverty rate in this district, known as Lombok Utara, is as high as 34.27% and many residents have been devastated. In the week prior to the main earthquake on August 5th, up to 127 small quakes were recorded whilst on the night of the main 7- magnitude earthquake, several large aftershocks of 5.6 and 5 magnitude were also felt. Victims are located across all four districts but mostly in the north. Thus far there have been 91 recorded deaths, 209 injuries, 20 000 internally displaced persons and thousands of destroyed homes and buildings.
