Bali’s volcano, Gunung Agung, is at Level 3 warning: SIAGA or Standby. Bumi Sehat and the people of Bali need your help.
Currently there are still 49,282 people evacuated from their homes due to the awakening of Bali’s biggest volcano. They are living in 295 official locations. Evacuee camps have limited resources; toilets, kitchens, food, access to medical care; are all issues. The disaster mitigation authorities are doing the best they can in these difficult times.
Bali is experiencing a wide variety of earthquakes, including non-harmonic and harmonic tremors, blowing (from gas releasing from vents in the crater), tectonic and shallow tremors. Volcanologists report the magma flowing under Gunung Agung has increased and risen to 4 km below the crater. While life goes on in most of Bali, the upcountry people are suffering from loss of livelihood as they are displaced from their farms. Many sold their livestock for a fraction of the worth. People who have long lived on the edge of poverty, working hard as farmers, have become virtually homeless. There is no way to predict when Bali’s closed system volcano may erupt, adding to uncertainty and stress.
Bumi Sehat clinic in Nyuh Kuning, Bali, is acting as a drop-off point for donations. Our team delivers the much-needed supplies to displaced communities directly affected by this state of emergency. Our doctors, nurses and midwives make medical missions to the evacuation camps. We work hand-in-hand with Kopernik, IDEP Foundation plus a collection of local NGO’s and concerned citizens, to optimize our relief efforts.
