Helping victims of earthquakes and tsunamis

BEATS was set up following the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami which claimed many lives over a vast area. The charity is principally working in Sumatra, Indonesia, providing financial support to provide education, accomodation, food and other needs for victims of earthquakes and tsunamis by partnering with two organisations, YACAN & YASAH, who run children's homes and sponsorship programmes. The links below will lead you to information on these organisations and their work. Thank you for your interest in BEATS.

The personal nature of the relationships between BEATS and its partner organisations enables sponsors to communicate easily with those they sponsor. The children and teachers alike really appreciate receiving letters, as can be seen in the adjoining photographs. Click on the links above to find out how to sponsor a child or teacher.

New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) come into force on 25th May 2018. These regulations require that all organisations must disclose what data they hold about individuals and how it is stored. It is also required that individuals must give permission to allow organisations to continue contacting them, and that the individual can also specify what kinds of information they want to receive, and what channels of communication are to be used. Please note, if you are already sponsoring a child or teacher, communications directly related to your sponsorship can continue without further permission. You may update your permissions at any time.

In October 2013, just prior to the typhoon that caused widespread damage, the Philippines had been hit by an earthquake which also caused a great deal of damage. The Danao Baptist Church building was destroyed, see before and after photos (left) and (right).

BEATS are providing funding towards the provision of a new building - construction has just started; see the 'Other Areas' page for more photos and information.
