When international disasters strike, global Red Cross teams are often the first to the scene, providing relief supplies such as food, water, tarps, hygiene kits and medical care to people in need. But even long after a disaster—when the news cameras disappear and headlines fade—the Red Cross remains in communities to help families rebuild, recover, and prepare for future emergencies.
The American Red Cross deployed to Indonesia nearly ten years ago to provide lifesaving support to families impacted by an earthquake and tsunami. Today, the American Red Cross remains in the country, carrying out disaster preparedness work and helping families stay safe, healthy, and resilient.
