Durban - Following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi last Friday, the Al-Imdaad Foundation’s relief team has been on the ground accompanying search and rescue teams and delivering emergency relief.
The island was struck by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake and a massive tsunami with waves up to 6 metres high added further devastation to coastal areas.
Some of the affected areas included Balaroa, Talise Beach and Petobo.
Al-Imdaad Foundation Trustee, Qari Ziyaad Patel, who is leading the Foundation’s South African team described the phenomenon of soil liquefaction as an unimaginable destruction.
“Even geologists were puzzled by the phenomenon which had turned solid ground to the consistency of liquid.”
