Department: Humanitarian Assistance
Project Name: WASH Recovery Program in Central Sulawesi (Indonesia)
Project Description: On September 28, 2018, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. 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. The TaiwanICDF worked with Mercy Corps Indonesia on Central Sulawesi Earthquake WASH Support Program from February to October 2019 during the early recovery phase. To continue responding the WASH related needs of more earthquake-affected households in Sigi district, the two organizations decided to scale up and carry out the second phase project.
Overall, the project includes the following:
1. Construct/rehabilitate 10 communal water sources.
2. Construct/rehabilitate 80 communal latrines.
3. 4 villages have reduced open defecation.
