7.4-magnitude Earthquake, Tsunami Cripple Indonesia

Natural Disaster Strikes Southeast Asia

Last Friday evening, the Central Sulawesi area of Indonesia was devastated by a 7.4-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

We were relieved to learn that our friends and business partners in the region are OK, but saddened that over 800 people lost their lives and the many thousands more were left homeless. 

Basic necessities are urgently needed to help the victims.

We recommend several excellent Indonesian organizations that are welcoming donations.
