Published on in / Blog / by .

Disaster has once again struck the coastal region of western Indonesia. A tsunami, triggered by a volcanic eruption, struck the area at approximately 9:30pm local time Saturday, December 22, killing over 350 people, wiping out hundreds of homes and businesses, and leaving many people homeless.

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has approved US$50,000 in designated disaster funding to assist local Lions of district A1 and B1 in providing much needed early response relief.

We know Lions everywhere join us in sending their thoughts and prayers to the people affected by this resent disaster as they not only mourn the loss of loved ones, but also struggle to obtain adequate housing, fresh water, and food.
