The Latest: Oxfam is well placed to be able to mobilise quickly in the aftermath of the second tsunami in the region in the past three months.
On Friday 28 September, a powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake triggered a devastating tsunami on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Oxfam has been responding with clean water, food and emergency shelter to survivors in the worst hit areas.
Thousands of people were forced to flee their homes and the widespread destruction made access to affected areas difficult, but we are on the ground delivering life-saving supplies. We've already delivered hygiene kits to nearly 5,000 people. We're building toilets, treating and distributing water, and providing shelters.
