Your Help Is Needed!

Support victims affected by the floods. Disaster relief donate. 

The death toll reached 43 on Friday amid flash floods and landslides in the capital, and surrounding areas. Torrential rains in the days either side of the new year have inundated swathes of Jakarta and nearby towns. The country’s meteorological agency called it “one of the most extreme” rainfall events since records began in 1866 and said climate change had increased the risk of extreme weather.

  • Donate now to plant a tree where it's needed most.
  • Indonesia is home to magnificent rainforests, carbon-rich peatlands, and diverse wildlife like orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Sun bears and over 1,700 species of birds. This project focuses on the Kalimantan region in Borneo, home to the Tanjung Puting National Park. In 2015, rampant fires burnt and destroyed more than 30,000 hectares of its forest. We work to restore areas affected by these fires, as well as those threatened by the palm oil industry and illegal mining operations. 
  • The number of blazes in Indonesia's rainforests has jumped sharply, satellite data showed Thursday, spreading smog across Southeast Asia and adding to concerns about the impact of increasing wildfire outbreaks worldwide on global warming.
  • Illegal blazes to clear land for agricultural plantations have been raging on Sumatra and Borneo islands, with Indonesia deploying water-bombing helicopters and thousands of security forces to tackle them.
  • It is just the latest such outbreak globally -- huge blazes have torn through the Amazon in South America while bushfires are sweeping across eastern Australia in an unusually ferocious and early start to the wildfire season.
  • Indonesia's forest fires are an annual problem but have been worsened this year by particularly dry weather, and in recent days sent toxic smog floating over Malaysia and triggered a diplomatic row. Indonesia Rainforest Charity Donate.
