For several weeks Disaster Aid Response Teams (DARTs) from Australia and the UK have been working in Sulawasi to assist the people of Palu.

As the last DARTs travelled home another Tsunami Disaster has struck Indonesia in the Sunda Strait Region.

The tsunami was belived to be triggered by an undersea landslide, caused by an eruption of the Krakatoa volcano, late on 22nd December. 

A five-metre wall of water washed at least 20 metres inland across the stretch of coast.

The devastation, included hundreds of flattened homes and with many other buildings also impacted.

Currently the official death toll is over 200, with victims spread throughout the Pandeglang, South Lampung and Serang regions.

Palu 4Disaster Aid Response Team (DARTS) from Australia and the UK have been working to help the people of Palu.

With over 40% of the buildings either severely damaged or collapsed tens of thousands are going to be without homes and services for a long time.

Working with local support organisations they have been assisting those who can't be accommodated in the temporary Camps.

The team have trained workers of the Palu Water Board in the installation of SkyHydrants.

Disaster Aid Skyhydrants have been installed in the Kawatuna and Fatulela neighbourhood areas.

They have also arranged for additional tanks in other areas and the repair of a well for an orphanage.

Currently they are identifying other areas that will reeceive Skyhydrants over the coming days and aiming to help meet the shelter needs.

The camps will be home to the families of these children, and thousands more, for at least the next two years while the rebuilding of communities around the City of Palu goes ahead.

A vital part of keeping the families healthy during this period will be the availablity of clean drinking water.

Disaster Aid, in partnership with the Indonesian Red Cross, are planning to install ten Skyhydrants in the camps.

Each Skyhydrant water filter will be able to treat 10,000 litres of water a day removing dangerous bacteria.

Every unit will protect the health of 500 residents.
