Rescuers continue to search for survivors after a volcanic eruption triggered a tsunami in the Sunda Strait region of Indonesia on Saturday. Please pray for the families affected.

Yakkum Emergency Unit (YEU), a member of ACT Alliance, is active on the ground in Indonesia. On its Twitter feed YEU says: “YEU is in coordination with Mardi Waluyo YAKKUM hospital in Metro Lampung to do rapid assessment and response in the affected areas in Kalianda and Rajabasa sub-districts.”

YEU’s update today says it is assisting those affected by the #SundaStraitTsunami in Rajabasa in Lampung Selatan.
