The Disasters Emergency Committee of which CAFOD is a member, has launched an appeal in response to the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia. CAFOD will share in the money raised by DEC to help our response in Indonesia. Supporters can also donate directly to CAFOD. Harvest Fast Day appeal donations help all our work – including emergencies. Over 1,347 people have been killed and thousands of homes destroyed after a 7.5 magnitude earthquake, which triggered a tsunami, struck Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, on Friday 28 September. Our local Caritas agency, Caritas Indonesia – known as Karina – are already on the ground in two dioceses near the affected area – Makassar in South Sulawesi and Manado in North Sulawesi. They are making their way to the worst-hit areas, getting emergency aid to where it’s needed and carrying out rapid assessments.
