GHANAIA Indonesian Earthquake Relief

More than 4500 people are feared dead and more than 100,000 have been injured and made homeless on 27 May 2006 by the earthquake that hit the ancient city of Yogyakarta and Bantul on the island of Java in Indonesia. The earthquake which measured 6.2 flattened buildings south of the city of Yogyakarta.

Families spent the night outdoors after losing their homes, while a
series of aftershocks added to people's fears.The area struck by the quake is densely-populated. The Indonesian Red Cross estimates some 200,000 people fled their homes after it hit early on Saturday morning.

UNITED SIKHS has responded by sending its response team with emergency supplies to the affected areas.
