    Default RE: Donations for Tsunami Victims in Aceh

    Iris, this organization sounds like a great place for those who want to make donations to help the many thousands of victims in Aceh. Personally, my wife Eri and have already donated into the fund jointly being raised by RCTI and BCA.

    There are other posts about the situation in Aceh under the heading Aceh Devastated by Quake and Tidal Waves.

    I agree with you 100% when you write, “Let’s do more than just pray.” I hope your husband’s family in Aceh is fine and that they are healthy. I hope your husband is also proud of the tremendous response by his fellow countrymen and women, who have already donated close to US 2 million dollars to assist those in Aceh.

    Many thanks for sharing this wonderful venue for those who would like to help.

    Relief agencies Care Australia and the Red Cross have launched fundraising appeals to help those affected by massive tidal waves in Asia.

    At least 12,600 people have been killed and thousands more are missing after the most powerful earthquake for 40 years triggered tsunamis that slammed into coastal areas across Asia.

    Care Australia has launched a national fundraising appeal. Its chairman, Tony Eggleton, says the money will buy clothes, shelter and food.

    "With many families being swept out to sea, thousands dying, whole communities being destroyed ... Care Australia feels that many people enjoying their Christmas-time here in Australia will want to help their neighbours so close by to them when they're suffering so much," Mr Eggleton said.

    CARE Australia teams from Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India and Thailand are travelling to affected areas to gauge the impact of the disaster.

    Donations can be made through the CARE Australia website ( http://www.careaustralia.org.au ) or by phoning 1800-020-046.

    The Australian Red Cross has also launched an emergency appeal.

    It has established a phone hotline for donations on 1-800-811-700, and donations can also be made on the Red Cross website ( http://www.redcross.org.au ).
    That's It !!

    Dear all,

    Thank you so much for the offers of support that have been coming in.

    There's a whole area on the south west coast of Aceh, closest to the epicenter of the earthquake, where there's been no contact at all. Officials are increasingly concerned about the situation there. It's thought there were a million people living in that area. Relief supplies are beginning to arrive in the Sumatran city of Medan ready for transport into the affected area, and the Indonesian government has just decided that they will allow international aid agencies to operate in Aceh. The province has been virtually sealed off for the past eighteen months because of a conflict between Indonesian security forces and separatist rebels.

    FOR THOSE ON BALI WISHING TO HELP - There are now at least several drop off points established on Bali – these include (as well as probably others):

    Ubud : IDEP foundation office - Jl Hanoman No 44b, Ubud
    Denpasar : JIKA- POSKO Bantuan Bencana Aceh - Jalan Tjok Tresna #49, Renon, and / or UNUD & Warmadewa Universities
    Kuta : Surfer Girl HQ & Aroma Café
    Seminyak : Asana Kopi & The (across from Made’s Warung)

    Account Name : Yayasan IDEP
    ACCOUNT NO : 034.001229576.003
    Bank : BNI (Bank Negara Indonesia), Cabang Ubud, Bali
    Bank Address : Jl. Raya Ubud, Bali - Indonesia
    SWIFT Code : BNINIDJA DPS

    We are working in conjunction with Masyarakat Penanggulangan Bencana (MPBI) The Indonesian people’s association of disaster management and BAKORNAS (Indonesian disaster management agency) who can send help people in need in Aceh and Sumatra via Jakarta. Donations are being collected here in Bali on a volunteer basis. We will work hard to ensure that donations reach their intended target. Please help.

    Initial items that you can consider donating (in kind or money to purchase) include:

    Water purification tablets, and any other water purification tools
    Oral Rehydration salts (Oralit)
    Bleach, disinfectants, Carbol (disinfectant)
    Soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, talcum / calamine powder sanitary napkins

    Sheets, towels, hammocks, mosquito nets and any other linens / bedding
    Any (if possible quick drying) clothing

    IDEP Update No 4

    Hello everyone: field report for yesterday / today is

    The goods that were purchased in Medan for shipment into Aceh were held up as we received reports from the ground of outbreaks of food riots and that some of the first trucks of aid from Medan to cross the border into Aceh were hijacked and food contents taken. Because of this there is hesitation on the part of truck drivers to enter into Aceh, however we hope this situation will improve quickly. There is a Red Cross boat and a fleet of Department of Forestry trucks leaving Medan today and we plan to have the goods on one of these two vehicles.

    UPDATE: The truck that left Medan at 9pm last night has made it as far as Lohksimaua! It has gotten through safely, with two OIC (Orangutan Information Centre) volunteers on board, to administer aid upon arrival in Aceh.

    The first shipment of donated goods from Bali by plane left last night. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this shipment from throughout Bali. These goods will spend the night in Jakarta and then will leave in the morning to Banda Aceh. We have made contact with a group of NGOs (Forum LSM Aceh, which includes WALHI) working together on the ground in Banda Aceh who will be notified when the shipment leaves Jakarta for Aceh and will then advise us on appropriate distribution. At the moment transportation and access is a huge issue. How these ground transport systems will work will be clarified over the next few hours / days. Forum LSM Aceh has a two story building in Banda Aceh that is being used as a headquarter. Storage of goods on the ground in Aceh airport is also an increasingly challenging issue. As well as our goods, there are much larger shipments going in and there is simply no where to store things safely and / or trucks / vehicles to deliver them to where they need to go.

    Continental Airlines has opened its doors and pockets, and has set up a cargo receiving centre at Denpasar airport to consilidate process and dispatch aid by air to affected areas. This initiative join with other airlines with like relief efforts (i.e. Garuda, Federal Express)

    We have established a working relationship with dive companies in Padang who are organizing fleets of ships to deliver shipments (and doctors that should be coming through soon from Surf Aid) into remote sealed off villages. The plan is to send the boats in with goods and take people out. There are 1,000 beds available in hospitals in Padang now. Plan is to set up a ferry that will use the upper level as a floating hospital / triage and lower levels for transporting aid. They also need specific types of zodiacs and various other equipment to be able to get into the shore as the coastlines are a mess.

    If we can get any ships sent over from Bali and / or Singapore to join the fleet that would be good, if anyone has any any contacts / ideas for this please let us know.

    We are also trying to immediately send in two people to help as soon as we can push them through on a flight. One of them is an engineering expert with experience in disaster zones (East Timor etc), he will be going in to teach techniques for water purification. and do as much repairs to generators and water pumps / establish pit latrines etc as possible on site. He will need a working laptop with modem that can use for email to take in does anyone have one to give???

    He has recommended that we prepare the following immediately – can anyone help with donations for any of these items?


    High quality pool chlorine
    Hydrogen peroxide
    Iodine (LOTS) the pure kind not betadine
    As much Oralite rehydration salts as we can get our hands on
    Lye (Kapur used to mix with cement)
    Lots of sarongs
    BIG Pots that can be used for boiling water
    Shovels
    Generators GENSET
    Kero “Butterfly” Stoves (with tank hose and bicycle pumps)
    Empty large 20 Lt aqua bottles
    Large buckets (the big black ones with sealable lids)
    satellite phones
    solar chargers for hand phones and laptops
    pulsa cards



    As much as possible of all of the above + all the other things that were on the other lists. Note: Just as with normal airline rules, do NOT include any flammable items, e.g. Fuel of any sort, any pressurized containers, ... However matches in sealed plastic bags/containers are desired.

    Information for Volunteers

    Volunteers are needed. Especially bilingual Indonesians and Volunteers of foreign nationality. There are already several foreigners on the ground and there has been a call for more people. Medical experts who know how to do triage / use first aid and are able to act as interpreters for foreign doctor being brought in to assist the PMI (Indonesian red cross) should send their CVs to : Ibu Rina via fax (021) 799 5188.

    If you are thinking about volunteering in Aceh, be prepared for exceptional physical and emotional hardship. Peace core level trained people. CV to be faxed to Walhi Evang on (021)794 1673. We will work on getting information about how people can get over there from Bali, if anyone already has information about this please send it through so we can post to all.

    Special position now open is for a communication manager for our team in Padang, emails, telephone work and organizing other peoples jobs. Must be highly skilled and experienced able to work well in high pressure environment. Please contact us if you are this person.

    HOW YOU CAN HELP

    FOR THOSE ON BALI WISHING TO HELP – Drop Offs / donations can be made at (see below for immediate needs list):

    All financial donations will be listed on a dedicated webpage which will be established within the next few days. Donors who wish to remain anonymous please notify us at the time of making your donation.

    Direct assistance to people in need is being prepared in the form of ‘Care Buckets’:

    ‘Care Buckets’ are plastic buckets with handles & lids. Each bucket is filled with a variety of urgently needed supplies (from list below). They are waterproof, pre-packed and durable, which means that the goods are likely to get into the hands of those in need more quickly and in good condition. The ‘Care Bucket’ also offers a much needed solution for individual family water containers with lids which will help reduce the spread of vector diseases.


    Water purification tablets, bleach and other water purification tools, disinfectants (karbol, pinesol)
    Oral Rehydration salts (Oralit), Soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, talcum powder, sanitary napkins
    First Aid medications & bandages, Betadine, Vitamins (especially for infants & children)

    Non perishable food, rice and instant noodles
    Candles, lighters, gas lanterns, torches (flashlights) and batteries
    Linens, Towels, bedding, hammocks, mosquito nets, large plastic bags & other containers
    Any (if possible quick drying) clothing
    Mosquito repellant (coils, creams & sprays)
    Cooking & eating utensils, cook stoves
    Tents, tarpaulins and ropes



    We have revised our list of urgently needed family needs items based on communications with people on the ground in Aceh to include the following

    canned fish
    salted dry fish
    canned and powdered milk
    cooking oil
    other packaged food items
    women’s sanitary napkins
    cajeput oil and telon oils



    Please contact your local drop off point to make a donation of ‘Care Buckets’ or funds to have the packages purchased on your behalf.


    Thank you for any help / support you are able to give.

    Speaking of putting smiles on the kid's faces, there was a nice piece on RCTI (local Indonesian TV) yesterday about a clown from New Zealand who's been in Aceh for a while now going from village to village to perform for the kids.

    I know some good people from Adelaide...Helen Flavel (and her husband Ron), and Colleen Dunk, her husband Raoul and son Blake. It was kinda funny for me reading your post as my mouse pad is "Adelaide by night" and my boys love their Adelaide base ball hats.

    Anyway, nice to hear from you.
