The Turkish Red Crescent has distributed food and hygienic supplies to disaster-hit Indonesia, the aid agency said in a statement on Sunday.

As part of the aid efforts in temporary shelter center built with the tents sent from Turkey, victims of natural disaster were given food and hygienic supplies, the statement said.

On Sept. 28, a 7.4-magnitude earthquake struck Sulawesi Island, triggering a tsunami in the cities of Donggala and Palu that towered up to 10 feet (three meters) high.

At least 2,091 died in the disaster.

Turkish Red Crescent's Deputy Chairman Naci Yorulmaz said the agency will continue to aid the victims in the region.

Noting that humanitarian aid efforts were initiated right after the disaster, he said they were in coordination with Indonesia's Red Crescent to reach the region.

Sending the humanitarian aid to Palu, which is most affected by the disaster, is as difficult today as it was in the early days [of the disaster], he said.

Yorulmaz added that around 40,000 people will benefit from the aid.

Our aim is to alleviate the pain of the people in the region and to enable them to return to their normal lives, he said.
