Sulawesi was hit by an earthquake of 7.5, followed by a tsunami resulting in a disaster scenario. More than 190,000 people need urgent humanitarian aid! Let's help Sulawesi with basic goods (food, water, medicine).

On September 28, an earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale hit Sulawesi Island in Indonesia, followed by a devastating tsunami, which left a desperate setting with no access to basic resources such as water and food.

By this time, there are over 1,400 dead, 60,000 displaced people and more than 190,000 people in need of urgent humanitarian aid!

I was in Sulawesi in August, volunteering and that's where I met Aziz. He is now in Palu - one of the most affected places - and desperately asked me for basic support (food, medicine, money). That's why I'm launching this campaign!

The necessary help is urgent and we can make a difference! Join the campaign with donations, all help is welcome.

There were many Portugal jerseys that I saw during the time I spent there. Let's show that our country is not just made of shirts, but of being there to help them in this urgent moment. #HelpSulawesi

About the author

I'm Dany Oliveira, 27 years old, and I'm currently living Bangkok, where I work for the World Bank. I did volunteering for a month in Sulawesi - teaching English and environmental education. The earthquake occurred only 400km from where I've been and I know how much help is needed right now. Aziz, one of the person that I met in Sulawesi is currently in Palu, one of the most affected areas and will be the point of contact to implement the aid.

Budget and due dates

Help in coordination with Aziz Aripuddin, which is in Palu.
