On September 30, a massive earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Sumatra, causing widespread destruction and triggering landslides that wiped out entire villages.

One month later, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is still operating mobile clinics, giving mental health support to the survivors, monitoring epidemics, distributing relief items, as well as providing water and sanitation support.

Just 10 days after an earthquake struck Sumatra Island, massive aid is already coming in. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is therefore focusing its efforts on the most neglected areas. Some heavily affected villages are still very difficult to access and others that are farther away from the epicenter have received little assistance.
