Fundraise for the Indonesia Tsunami Appeal | ActionAid UK

Over 2,070 people have died in the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday 28th September. The 7.5 magnitude earthquake caused a tsunami with waves as high as 18 feet to sweep into the city of Palu, decimating entire communities.  

1.5 million people have been affected and hundreds of thousands of survivors are in urgend need of food, water and shelter. Authorities fear that casualties and the number of those displaced by the disaster will continue to rise.  

Could you organise a collection, local event or another fundraising activity with your friends, school or colleagues?
