ABOUT THE NATURAL DISASTERS IN INDONESIA

Three immense, almost concurrent natural disasters occurred on several places in Indonesia since October 2010, resulting in many casualties and heavy destruction of infrastructure in the affected areas:

1) Flash flood in Wasior, eastern Indonesian province of West Papua.

2) Earthquakes in western coast of Sumatra and tsunami in Mentawai islands.

3) Mount Merapi eruption in Central Java.

PPI-Denmark (Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia di Denmark) as a non-profit Indonesian student union in Denmark, along with Indonesian society in Denmark and DANIF, take the initiative to help those victims by selling 60 dinner coupons for a charity evening in Enghave Kirke by 4 December 2010. All the profits made from this event will be responsibly and directly forwarded to MerapiCare and Indonesian Red Cross, voluntary institutions that distribute donations to the victims of those three natural disasters.

The first disaster: Flood in Wasior in 6 October 2010 caused by heavy rains resulted in a river overflowing its banks, causing landslides. At least 174 people have been reported dead in the floods, 181 missing and presumably dead, and 185 people injured.  About 11,000 survivors were evacuated. Ninety three barracks are still built in Wasior and would be completed by mid-November, and more permanent housings would be carefully planned and built in one to two years. Further reading…

Another disaster: Several earthquakes with magnitude 7.7 Mw occured off the western coast of Sumatra and caused a substantial localized tsunami that struck Mentawai islands in 25 October 2010 and swept as far as 600 metres inland. The disaster caused 435 people died, injured ca. 700 people, while over 100 more are still missing. It displaced more than 20,000 people, and affected about 4,000 households.  Houses are now built for reconstruction. Further reading…

ONGOING DISASTER: From 26 October to 14 November 2010, Mount Merapi eruption  in Central Java causes 250 275 people dead and the figure continues to rise as people with severe burns die from their injuries related to the blast. Over 350,000 people were evacuated from the area. Makeshift hospitals and public kitchens are builtd to serve the growing number of the displaced people. Schools and universities in the area were reported closed up to 120 kilometers from Merapi. Refugee camps kept relocated to secure locations, placing an added burden upon logistics and the delivery of basic needs to the displaced people. The survivors are so vulnerable to acute respiratory infection, hypertension, and headache. Many children remained separated from their parents due to the chaos of exodus. Every minute, humanitarian aids are urgently needed for the refugee camps, such as clean water, basic logistics, toilet facilities, medicine, nutrition for pregnant refugees, and daily necessities. Reconstruction and rehabilitation for Merapi disaster is still faraway, as the mountain still continuously spews ash, rock, gas and lava. Further reading….
