DEC Statement on the earthquake in Java, Indonesia - 1 Jun 2006

News and Press Release
Originally published
The DEC Member Agencies are already active in Java and are playing a crucial role in getting relief to the survivors.

Some members have launched their own appeals in support of their emergency response, and the rest of the DEC agencies are taking donations for their work.

The DEC Trustees have reviewed the situation following assessments by Member Agencies and has decided that the relief programmes are not being curtailed by a major lack of funds and therefore a national appeal managed by the DEC is not necessary at this time.
