thumbnail of R_CP_INDONESIA

LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF (LWR) began working in Indonesia following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, addressing both emergency and long term development needs. Indonesia remains one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, with millions of people affected annually by earthquakes, landslides, floods and tsunamis. Poor, rural communities have few resources to prepare for or mitigate the effects of these hazards and even fewer resources to recover.

LWR currently works in the provinces of Aceh, North Sumatra and Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT).
