Campaign Story

Flash floods and landslides unleashed by torrential rains killed 60 people on the Indonesian island of Flores on Sunday. At least 49 families were hit on Flores, in the east of Indonesia’s sprawling archipelago where thousands are reported to have been displaced.

Mud tumbled down from surrounding hills onto dozens of homes in Lamenele village shortly after midnight on Adonara island in East Nusa Tenggara province. Rescuers recovered 38 bodies and at least five people were injured. The latest report from the disaster management agency BNPB said, the death toll from the flash floods has crossed over 60 people, 9 people are reported as severely injured, and 27 people are still missing. 

Road access and bridges were cut off, making it difficult for heavy equipment to reopen the affected areas due to rains and heavy waves.

In neighbouring East Timor, a two-year-old child was among at least three people killed in a landslide on the outskirts of the capital, Dili.

Responding to the casualties, the Emergency Response team from ACT has been deployed to the affected locations. In addition to evacuation efforts, the team also provides ready-to-eat food, medical and logistical aid to the affected people as well as the officers on duty at the location. 

Indonesia’s weather agency said a tropical cyclone was approaching the Savu Straits between the southern part of Nusa Tenggara province and East Timor’s north coast, warning that it could bring yet more rain, waves and winds.

The number of people affected is increasing as you read this. The people of Indonesia need our help. The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. And whoever helps ease a difficulty in the world, Allah will grant him ease from a difficulty in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever covers (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will cover (his faults) for him in the world and the Hereafter. And Allah is engaged in helping the worshipper as long as the worshipper is engaged in helping his brother.” [Tirmidhi]
