NRS Relief mobilizes emergency shelters in support of the earthquake response in Indonesia led by the UN Migration Agency (IOM)
Six weeks after the 7.4-magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, more than 220,000 displaced people, many of whom are children, still need immediate humanitarian assistance.
NRS Relief, subsidiary of NRS International that manufactures core relief items, family tents and other life-saving aid essentials, fulfilled an important order in support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM)’s relief efforts to meet the emergency shelter needs of displaced persons in the region. The operation was funded by the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund.
IOM emergency shelters were supplied to Balikpapan airport via B767 charter flight. The challenging logistic operations were successfully done in collaboration with NRS Relief logistics team and DHL Global Forwarding Dubai.
