Aussie humanitarian support headed to Indonesia

c j hercules

Royal Australian Air Force aircraft have departed Australia carrying humanitarian supplies for people affected by the earthquake and tsunami that has devastated Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The aircraft is expected to arrive in Indonesia late this afternoon with tarpaulins, tools to build shelter, as well as hygiene and birthing kits. With over 70,000 people displaced by the tsunami, these supplies will provide critical relief.


Australia will deliver more supplies in the coming days and continue to work closely with the Indonesian government to help people affected by this tragedy.

To date Australia has committed over $5.5 million to support the Indonesian government and humanitarian partners in the tsunami and earthquake relief response.
