Oxfam and partners assessing damage after earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia

By Oxfam

Oxfam and its local partners in Indonesia are assessing damage after a massive earthquake and tsunami hit coastal towns in the country’s central island of Sulawesi yesterday (Friday).

Oxfam’s Country Director in Indonesia, Maria Lauranti, said: “Oxfam's partners in Palu have been working closely with the National Disaster Management Agency and local authorities in the affected area to assess the situation on the ground.”

Oxfam has previously established a Humanitarian Knowledge Hub with the support of Oxfam in Indonesia which consists of 16 civil society organizations in Indonesia, led by Jamari Sakato. Oxfam in Indonesia has been working to strengthen the capacity of this alliance as the local force in disaster risk management, and it responded to help people affected by the Lombok earthquake in July 2018.
