Tsunamis and earthquakes kill quickly, but they can also kill slowly.

Help Team Rubicon provide 5,000 litres of clean water an hour to thousands of people living in a displaced persons camps, following the recent earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.

The cost of this water purification unit is £15,000 and we are hoping to raise £5,000 through this campaign. Survivors need access to clean water and toilets to avoid the spread of disease.

As one of the few international NGOs invited to support the survivors of the recent disasters, donating to Team Rubicon ensures you can directly impact the lives of thousands of people in Indonesia. 

On Friday 28 September, a magnitude 7.4 rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a terrifying tsunami that reached 18 feet in height and left a trail of destruction in its wake.

The true scale of the disaster is only now becoming clear, weeks later. 

Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities have been wiped out by the tsunami or liquefaction caused by the earthquake.

At least 2,000 people have died, thousands more are missing and 200,000 survivors are still in urgent need of assistance, around a quarter of whom are children, according to official government figures.


For the many thousands seeking refuge in camps, the biggest threat to is now deadly diseases like malaria and cholera.
