Helping victims of earthquakes and tsunamis

About B.E.A.T.S.

Charity Overview

The song "Behind the Curtain" by Emily Page (YouTube clip above) gives an overview of the work of BEATS in photographs.

BEATS' Activities:
To help victims of tsunamis and earthquakes anywhere in the world where help is needed and effective partnerships can be made.

BEATS' Objectives are to provide:
1) Relief by means of material assistance to victims.
2) Education and vocational training of young people.
3) General regeneration in areas of deprivation for the benefit of the general public.

We have so far concentrated our efforts on helping people in Sumatra, Indonesia which has frequent earthquakes because it lies on the north fault line of the Australian tectonic plate - victims of the tsunami of Boxing Day 2004, Nias earthquake 2005, Padang earthquake 2009, Menatawai tsunami 2010. We have also helped victims of the Haiti earthquake 2010, Japan tsunami 2011 and Samoa Islands tsunami 2009.

BEATS currently help by five methods:

a) Child sponsorship - see the Sponsor a child page

b) Regular giving towards staff allowances - YACAN children's home

c) Teacher sponsorship - YASAH children's home

d) General Fund - donations help bigger projects and regular purchases such as food, clothes, shoes etc. Donors can specify to which project they wish their donation to be allocated. See 'How to help' page.

e) Prayer.
