23. Nov. 2018
Wednesday, December 19 you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the important relief work that happens in the wake of the natural disaster, which hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi in September 2018.

On 28. September 2018, the island of Sulawesi was struck by an earthquake followed by a tsunami, which brought massive devastation to the Donggala District. Two months down the line, the victims of the disaster are still very dependent of the help they receive from international aid agencies as they await the possibility of returning to their homes.

Helping is complicated

A couple of days after the disaster, the Poul Due Jensen Foundation/Grundfos Foundation was able to commit 2 million DKK to the relief work , enabling Water Mission to help out with emergency water supplies in the disaster-stricken area.

Water Mission’s Emergency Response Coordinator, Craig Williams, flew in to assess the situation and establish contacts with authorities and other NGOs:

Free lecture at Grundfos

You can meet Craig Williams and hear his personal story from the relief work in Indonesia. Craig visits Grundfos  on 19 December and will give a lecture in the Grundfos Center Auditoriumfrom 4PM to 5PM. The Foundation will offer a refreshment to the guests.

The Poul Due Jensen Foundation keeps an annual reserve for disaster relief of 2 m DKK.
