The floods with flow depth ranging from 0.2m-2.5m have caused power outages and road closures, as well as several localised landslides. The total number of deaths has climbed to 66 and is expected to continue rising. More than 18 million people are reported to be affected by this devastation with over 173,000 displaced and in urgent need of clean water, food, medical care and shelter.
Together with a local NGO, Mercy Relief will commence our first phase of relief operations through the distribution of solar lights, hot meal & clean water to the affected communities in Jakarta Metropolitan Area.
We call for an urgent appeal for donations to reach our initial crowdfunding goal of $50,000 to bring the much-needed aid to the affected communities.
Disasters show no mercy but you can. Donate now.
*Donations for foreign purposes are NOT eligible for tax-deductions.
