Welcome to BEATS Home Page

Helping victims of earthquakes and tsunamis

BEATS is principally working in Indonesia partnering with four organisations, GBI Church in Ambon who are supporting earthquake victims through a home-rebuilding project, a child sponsorship programme, and a loan scheme for start-up businesses, YSI who run disaster preparedness training courses and sewing courses for widows, and YACAN and YASAH who run Children's Homes. The links below will lead you to information about these organisations and their work. For more information about BEATS, see the 'About BEATS' page.

The personal nature of the relationships between BEATS and its partner organisations enables sponsors to communicate easily with those they sponsor. Many sponsors have enjoyed seeing the individual they sponsor and speaking directly to them via WhatsApp or similar means, as well as receiving regular updates and letters. See the Sponsor a Child page for more information and FAQs

November 2023

Following the destructive earthquake in Ambon in September 2019, BEATS has been providing funds for the rebuilding damaged or destroyed houses. Here are the before and after photos of the 12th house that BEATS has reconstructed. Pak Ade and Ibu Ida are very happy with their new home, especially as it has a kitchen, bathroom and electricity as well as a living room and bedroom.

For information on how BEATS has already helped in Ambon see the information on our Ambon page.

We are so proud of Destin (pictured here), who has just completed a post graduate year with the highest possible grades to become a fully qualified midwife. She was a resident at YASAH Children's Home and has been supported by a group of sponsors who have enabled her to realise her full potential. Destin and BEATS express their profound gratitude to these sponsors for their loving and steadfast support.
