UN providing emergency supplies to quake victims in Indonesia

Funding for the kits – which consist of cooking utensils, tableware, items for hygiene and sleeping-ware needed by families living in temporary camps – came from the Government of Denmark.”We express our sincere condolences towards the victims of the earthquake in Alor. We hope that the assistance will contribute towards alleviating the suffering for the survivors,” said Michael Elmquist, chief of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Indonesia.
