PADANG, INDONESIA (October 5, 2009) – Covenant World Relief funds already are at work helping victims of two earthquakes that devastated that nation the past week.

A 7.6-magnitude quake struck Sumatra on Wednesday, and a 6.6-magnitude earthquake hit Thursday morning in the same region. More than 700 people have been confirmed dead, and thousands remain missing.

Within hours of the second earthquake, World Relief International (WR) workers were in the area to assess the situation and make plans for providing assistance. World Relief automatically draws the Covenant funds from an account used for immediate assistance.

Conditions remain difficult, according to news reports. Telecommunications, power, and other vital services have been affected, and some roads remain cutoff.
