Support disaster relief efforts in Indonesia

Vanguard Charitable, in partnership with Charity Navigator, has confirmed that the organizations listed below are supporting relief efforts for areas in Indonesia affected by the September 28 earthquake and resulting tsunami. A magnitude 7.5 earthquake along the Palu-Koro faultine triggered a tsunami which flooded the coastal cities of Palu and Donggala. Officials have announced that more than 1,900 people have already been killed, and the death toll is unfortunately expected to rise. Basic supplies continued to be needed, including food and medicine.
