Mercy Relief, Singapore's leading independent disaster relief agency, is responding to the Cianjur earthquake in West Java, Indonesia.
An earthquake of 5.6 M at a depth of 10 km occurred in West Java Province (Indonesia) on 21 November at 6.21 UTC (13.21 local time).
The epicentre of the earthquake was on land, about 10 km south-west of Cianjur Regency (West Java Province). USGS PAGER estimates that up to 242,000 people were exposed to very strong shaking and up to 978,000 people. The earthquake has so far claimed 271 lives and displaced 2.5 million families.
Mercy Relief will be collaborating with Asar Humanity on the implementation and coordination of the entire project. The team will distribute emergency relief assistance through provision of hot meals, water, hygiene kits, blankets and shelter tents to the worst affected and most vulnerable villages in Cianjur Regency, benefiting 2,527 families.
