In response to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia, GER3 is deploying a disaster response and recovery team to conduct initial assessments, deliver assistance and design programming focused on debris management and building back better. GER3 will be targeting support to local communities (households, schools and health facilities) supporting them to manage all of the debris and shelter challenges they currently face.
Our team will work with community members to identify the most vulnerable areas, understand what the community needs are and provide support to help targeted communities recover as quickly as possible. GER3 will seek to develop programming with partners (Indonesian and international) that meets immediate and longer-term needs in a manner that respects local practices, is sustainable (usually involving the recycling of materials) and high impact.
Additional updates will be coming, but also be sure to follow our work on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
