A 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Sulawesi on Friday 28 September, triggering a powerful tsunami wave. More than 800 people are confirmed dead and the toll is rising. Thousands more need urgent help. Indonesian Red Cross teams have been on the scene since the first earthquake hit, with search-and-rescue teams, ambulances and first aid crews. Emergency medical, water and sanitation teams are on their way from other parts of the country.
The Asian Pop Radio team are saddened to see the death and destruction that the disaster has caused and we wish to do our bit for our northern neighbours and friends who have been affected. We feel the best way to do this is to simply encourage our followers to donate directly to The Red Cross to help them in their efforts. Our team are also going to donate to the cause and we hope you will think about doing the same, every little bit helps, but its always needed sooner rather than later.
