Palu and Lombok Earthquakes

Palu and Lombok Earthquakes

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Palu and surrounding areas in Sulawesi who have been impacted by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in late September and in those affected by the Lombok earthquake in August this year.

Apart from our strong support for Indonesian culture, as a community organisation AIASA also commit itself to helping people in need, such as in the case of natural disaster. Donations from the local Indonesian community have been channelled directly to Lombok appeals and AIASA has made a donation of AUD$2000 through the Australian Red Cross.

To support Lombok and Palu the AIASA, Diaspora SA, IndoPeduli and other Indonesian organisations are holding a fundraising concert on Saturday 6 October which has been sold out. You can still make donations to the IndoPeduli fundraising effort which will be chanelled through Indonesian agencies on the ground.

How you can help
You can also donate through Australian humanitarian agencies mounting relief efforts in Lombok and Palu, including Oxfam and the Red Cross. Contact info@indofest.com.au if you wish to donate via IndoPeduli.
