Where we work | Indonesia
Salam Charity


Indonesia, in Southeast Asia, is home to 270 million people – the fourth biggest population in the world. Hunger and food insecurity are serious challenges here. Nearly 23 million people are unable to meet their dietary requirements and almost 31% of children under five suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition. This problem is particularly prevalent among families who are dependent on subsistence farming or living in slum areas.

On February 25, 2022, West Sumatra in Indonesia was struck by an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2. It caused substantial destruction to buildings and infrastructure, including schools and homes. Many buildings were completely destroyed, and others were structurally compromised, becoming unsafe for habitation. This disaster created widespread demand for temporary shelter and essential provisions.


Shelter Rehabilitation

We started this project to help families and communities affected by the natural disaster. Rebuilding and restoring homes doesn’t just improve living conditions; it also offers security and stability to people who are facing adversity. One home at a time, this rebuilding project contributes to the broader goals of our work: supporting sustainable development, protecting human rights, and promoting peace and stability. This initiative goes beyond immediate relief, empowering people to actively participate in reconstructing their communities and fostering resilience for the future.

Food Packs

Filled with nutritious basic ingredients, our food packs provide immediate relief from hunger and help to prevent longer-term malnutrition. In emergencies, each one is a lifeline. Providing a consistent supply builds community resilience, helping people to focus on rebuilding their lives without the added stress of food insecurity.

Donate to our ongoing work in Indonesia to help us build a brighter, more resilient future for people and communities who need us.
