FROM THE FIELD: 10,000 Indonesia quake survivors to receive UN tents

29 October 2018

More than 2,000 emergency tents have been delivered by the UN to the people worst affected by the devastating earquake and tsunami that struck Sulawesi in Indonesia in September, 2018. 

Around 2,000 people were killed in the disaster and some 200,000 were displaced.

Survivors have used old plastic sheeting to build tents on empty land, but the makeshift shelters are not withstanding the constant rainfall.

With the help of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), 10,000 of those most in need will receive shelter.
