Indonesia : Aid efforts in Aceh/Sumatra

An urgent appeal for help from the Aceh/Sumatra region has been made. Details on ongoing relief efforts and news updates from Ground Zero are being recorded at www.mentawai.com/aceh.html

You can help in several ways:

If you want to help with cash via an registered charity, go to www.surfaidinternational.org and donate on line. Surf Aid have an office in Padang and we are working closely with them. Funds sent to SAI will be focused on the west coast area so the help will be targeted in the islands and south west Aceh area.

Padang FM are broadcasting to collect material such as bottled water, rice, matches, cooking ware, tarps, tents, medical supplies and more:

Chris and Chris at Hotel Batan Arau are ready to store material, food and equipment until these can be loaded on boats. Padang residents can drop aid packages at: Hotel Batang Arau, Jl Batang Arau No 33. Phone 27400

If you are in Indonesia, send pachages by mail or courier to:
PT Mentawai Wisata Bahari
Jl Kesatria No. 6
Ganting, Padang
West Sumatra

The latest news as recorded from the site is :

Padang has over 2,000 hospital beds available. Sibolga has about 200 beds available. No sick or injured have been able to reach those beds yet and we can not confirm any concrete plan to make this happen. One solution that could help thousands is to mobilize a large car ferry to act as a mother ship/floating clinic and a 150 passenger fast ferry to move sick and injured to either Sibolga or Padang. There are ferries in the area that can do this job until bigger faster boats could be sent here. We appeal to all those who have authority to focus on achieving this simple step. It could save a great number of lives and alleviate awful suffering.

As of 11:20 am, 2nd January, the Electric Lamb (sea vessel) has been reported to be approaching Pini Island, Telos Group.
