Department: Humanitarian Assistance
Project Name: Central Sulawesi Earthquake WASH Support Program (Indonesia)
Project Description: On September 28, 2018, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, also triggering a devastating tsunami. The disaster has caused severe damage on water supply systems; therefore, the affected households have confronted water supply crisis. In addition, the loss of houses also means the loss of toilets, which leads to open defecation and sanitation problem. To address above mentioned issues, the project aims to assist the affected households in 3 sub districts, Sigi-Biromaru, Gumbasa and Dolo Selatan, in Sigi district by meeting their basic water and sanitation needs.
Overall, the project includes the following:
1. 8 clean water sources/sites are constructed or rehabilitated.
2. 1,000 households have filtration equipment for potable water.
3. 100 communal latrines are constructed.
