Rebuilding in Indonesia in the Aftermath of an Earthquake with DRI Foundation Support

To aid in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in Indonesia, the DRI Foundation has supplied donations to organizations on the ground, helping recovery and immediate assistance for those in need. 

On August 5, 2018, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Lombok. Over 400,000 residents were displaced as nearly 80% of all structures in North Lombok were either damaged or destroyed.

The DRI Foundation provided relief support to All Hands and Hearts as the organization helped those in need on the road to recovery. In turn, All Hands and Hearts also partnered with World Central Kitchen to identify communities in need of food, shelter, and supplies. Thanks to these contributions, All Hands and Hearts was able to bring in volunteers to help prepare and cook anywhere from 500 to 3,000 meals per day; provide materials and guidance for construction of a temporary mosque; and build 30 temporary homes for members of the village of Kapu.
