I worked with the iAID team, who recently came to Palu in Sulawesi, Indonesia, to deliver aid to the Tsunami , earthquake, landslides and Liquefaction victims.

Their team arrived and were incredible organised. They specialise in innovative technology for emergency and humanitarian work.

They raised the money and bought Solar powered lanterns and water purifying units and delivered all of them directly to the victims who have no clean water or electricity. They delivered 5,000 and they made sure they gave 1 to each family in each camp they went to.

They changed the lives of many people whose hearts they touched as well as bringing smiles to them with their lights and water purifying units.

I can never thank them enough! THEY CHANGED SO MANY LIVES…I witnessed how they made people smile, how children played and read after dark, after sitting in the dark for 5 months! I saw how happy the people were when they received these 2 precious items.
