Ambon

On 26th September 2019, a strong magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck Maluku, E Indonesia, near the provincial capital of Ambon. A total of 41 people were killed by the quake and another 1,578 people were injured. More than 6,000 structures were damaged or destroyed throughout the Maluku islands. People have been living in tents or shacks since the earthquake; the frequent rainy seasons add to their difficulties due to leaking structures and the threat of flooding. BEATS sent 4 grants during 2020 for essential supplies, however, BEATS are now providing funds to rebuild or repair houses; the slideshow below shows the houses that BEATS have so far been able to rebuild. Many more people still need a permanent roof over their head, please consider helping, it currently costs approximately £1,500 to rebuild a house.





BEATS support Ambon earthquake victims through this home-rebuilding project, a child sponsorship programme (see Sponsor Page), and a loan scheme for start-up businesses.

Following the destructive earthquake in Ambon in September 2019, BEATS has been providing funds for the rebuilding of damaged or destroyed houses. Here are the before and after photos of the 12th house for which BEATS has provided a grant. 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.
