More than 400 people are reported dead after a tsunami struck western Java and southern Sumatra islands during the evening of Dec. 22.
Indonesia’s geological and weather service says the tsunami was likely caused by undersea landslides in the Sunda Strait following an eruption by the Anak Krakatoa volcano. World Vision, which is simultaneously responding to earthquakes on Lombok island and Central Sulawesi, is assisting children and families in some of the worst-affected areas of Serang and Pandeglang districts on the west coast of Java’s Banten province.
When disaster strikes, World Vision is there. We respond immediately with life-saving help and supplies to support families as they recover and rebuild. World Vision is a leader in emergency relief, with decades of experience and an established network of staff ready to respond to any type of disaster, anywhere in the world.

Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to the Disaster Relief Fund.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
