Sulawesi earthquake survivor stories

It’s been over two weeks since a series of earthquakes triggered a powerful tsunami on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, and the needs of the stricken communities remain massive.

An initial search and rescue phase ended last week and the latest official figures say at least 2,200 people are known to have died and 4,600 sustained “major injuries”. Many more are still unaccounted for.

The situation on the ground is still desperate, and there is still urgent need for food, clean water, tarpaulins and medical assistance.

Team Rubicon remains in-country at the sharp end, working with the government and local NGOs to best support the people caught in the aftermath of this disaster.
