When an emergency, like the Indonesian earthquake and tsunami strikes; every second counts. The ability to deploy resources quickly means we’re able to implement more effective strategies and provide medical attention to people before the emergency escalates.

According to the Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) as of 25 December, 14:00 hrs, a total of 16,082 people have been displaced, and the country was deploring more than 500 deaths, and more than 2,000 injured people. On 01 January, due to torrential rains, some of the affected areas in the Labuan Sub-district were flooded, worsening the situation.

MSF responded within few hoursthe emergency support to those affected is still ongoing: the 25 deployed MSF staff are helping 2 health centers in Pandeglang, but also 3 mobile clinics delivering health care to 17 villages.

As of 02 January 2019, thanks to your regular donations, MSF has been able to conduct 472 medical consultations and treatments, and provide pre- and post-natal care to 20 pregnant mothers.
