On 22 December 2018, at 9.30pm local time, a tsunami struck coastal areas around the Sunda Strait between the islands of Sumatra and Java due to an undersea Krakatoa volcanic eruption, according to BBC. As of Monday morning, the death toll reached 281, up from 222 the night before, while 1,016 people were injured and 57 were missing, according to Indonesia's disaster agency.

Mercy Relief will be conducting its first phase of emergency relief operations together with its ground partners to address the urgent needs of the disaster survivors.

Together with your help, we will be able to provide timely and effective aid to the affected communities between the islands of Sumatra and Java.
