We are currently feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty and providing clothes and shelter to the survivors of the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.  Our Caritas aid workers have reached Palu, with aid – transporting 7 tons of rice, canned sardines, 500 boxes of drinking water, 250 packages of blankets, hygiene kits, water buckets, tarpaulins, mats and sarongs, and have begun distributions.  To help us provide this essential support please donate to our appeal here .
