On November 21, 2022, an earthquake struck the town of Cianjur, Indonesia. The earthquake was felt in multiple regions across Indonesia and had particularly devastating effects in Cianjur.

Thousands of homes were severely damaged, and residents have been evacuated. A 30-day state of emergency has been declared by the government of Indonesia because aftershocks have continued to occur regularly since the initial earthquake hit.

In response to the devastating calamity, our local team in Indonesia initiated a donation programme through ASL's One World commitment to help local communities flourish. 3-Dec-07-2022-10-15-21-1510-AM
