A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Lombok island, Indonesia, which destroyed more than 1,000 houses and buildings, and over 10,000 people to evacuate and claimed dozens of lives.

Peace Winds Japan (PWJ) has formed a emergency response team with its partner organizations, Asia Pacific Alliance (A-PAD) and Civic Force, consisted with Search and Rescue staff, medical staff, as well as emergency relief staff, and the team will arrive shortly in Lombok to assess the extent and impact of the damage to determine the needs for the emergency response activities.

The region is still trying to recover from the 6.4-maginitude earthquake which caused some destruction and casualties just one week ago.

We appreciate your generous support on our emergency relief work helping people affected by the earthquakes in Lombok island.
