Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our $30,000 stretch target to ensure Mercy Relief can continue relief efforts on the ground and invest in Disaster Risk Reduction programmes.

In the early morning of 7 December 2016 a 6.4m earthquake shook Aceh Province in Indonesia. more than 91,000 people remain displaced, about 800 injured and unfortunately 103 casualties have been confirmed*.

Mercy Relief is in Pidie Jaya assessing the needs on the ground. Our team has improved community kitchens providing more nutritious meals to those affected and offering medical supplies and services to local communities.

Help us empower the survivors in Aceh and build more resilient communities, ready to come out of any tragedy stronger and unconquered.

We will also be sharing Impact Reports with all our donors, at the 2nd, 6th and 12th month mark.

***In the event that sufficient funds are raised to address immediate needs on the ground, Mercy Relief will direct excess funding to Disaster Risk Reduction programmes in Aceh. These preparedness programmes can save lives by empowering communities with the knowledge and tools to overcome the next disaster.
