Challenge: 

A surge of seismic activity at Mount Agung have prompted authorities to raised the volcano’s alert status to awas or level 4 (highest) from siaga or level 3 (high) on late Friday (22 September), indicating greater probability of an eruption.

According to the latest data from BNPB (Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management), more than 15,000 residents of Karangasem regency, Bali have been evacuated from their homes as the volcano’s magma flows are indicated to have risen closer to the surface, triggering hundreds of tremors

In two of the locations - Sidemen and Sibetan, Karangasem, Bali, as of the afternoon of 23 September there were more than 5,000 evacuees from villages within 12 kilometres around Mt. Agung. BNPB urged residents or tourists to stay away from areas less than 9 km of the crater and 12 km to the north, north-east, south-east, and south/south-west of the mountain. The last eruption in 1963 led to a death toll of 1,148 and 296 injured. The residents are currently being evacuated and dispersed into evacuation points in Klungkung, Karangasem, Buleleng, Bangli, Gianyar, Tabanan, Badung, and Denpasar regencies.

Kopernik team members who distributed items in Posko Les Singaraja on Friday (September 22) evening reported that due to the urgency of the situation and the increasing number of the evacuees, evacuation posts have faced a shortage of food and clean drinking water, as well as a limited supply of cloths and basic hygiene kit.

How we can help: 

We are connecting hygiene kits comprising of buckets, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, sanitary pads, diapers as well as food, sleeping mats, blankets and Nazava water filters and cups to families affected by the volcano’s increasing activity.

Who are we working with: 

We will help families affected by Mount Agung’s activity in coordination with IDEP as well as local government emergency response teams that have already established posts to aid the evacuees.

Distribution: 

All supplies and equipment will be distributed by Kopernik in partnership with IDEP and coordinating with local government emergency response teams for free.
