Indonesia 2018

The earthquake and the tsunami at the end of September brought death and destruction to Sulawesi. The tsunami was triggered on 28 September by a particularly severe earthquake off the coast of Sulawesi. The epicentre was located almost 80 kilometres north of Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi Province. Countless people lost their lives and numerous victims are still missing. An experience that leaves deep emotional traces, especially on children.

In order to support these traumatised children in coming to terms with their experiences, an emergency pedagogy mission took place in the crisis region at the beginning of October. Since the need for psychosocial help is still great, we are glad to have found local partners to continue the work in the destroyed region. In order to further support them, a second mission took place in the crisis region at the beginning of December. In addition to the work with the children, the focus was on the training and further education of the local specialists. Strengthening them is central to long-term and sustainable aid.
The emergency pedagogical crisis interventions took place in cooperation with "Aktion Deutschland Hilft".
