Program Summary

Disaster Profile

On August 5, 2018, a powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Lombok. This was the strongest of three earthquakes to hit the island within two weeks.

It was estimated that nearly 500,000 people were displaced with more than 90,000 homes damaged. In some villages, not a single building was spared, including homes, schools, hospitals, and religious facilities. The inland villages were both the hardest hit and the most difficult to reach.

Our Work

The All Hands and Hearts assessment team designed a program with our local partners which involved first listening to the local community to fully understand their needs. It was determined that the program would need to include: distributing food, deconstructing unsafe buildings, clearing debris, and building temporary structures such as homes, community infrastructure, and latrines.
