Emergency assistance for media in the wake of the Sulawesi tsunami

In 2018, a powerful earthquake and tsunami struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Andi Besse was among the journalists who lost her equipment in the disaster, and received emergency assistance from Free Press Unlimited and partner organisation PPMN. “Access to information is very important during an emergency situation,” said Eni Mulia, the director of PPMN. “At the same time, the journalists had to deal with their own situations as they were victims of the tsunami themselves. They lost so much of their equipment and could not work without it. We believed it was key to help journalists and media with equipment and technical assistance to keep up the flow of information.”
