Hanoi (VNA) – Nearly 60,000 people still remain in shelters about one year after earthquakes and tsunami caused major damage to Palu city on Sulawesi island of Indonesia.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on September 23 said an estimated 57,000 people remain homeless, unsure where and when they can rebuild their homes.

IFRC Indonesia voiced its hope that the Indonesian government will redouble its efforts to identify settlement areas and help thousands of families build permanent homes with infrastructure that is more resilient to future disasters.

The World Bank previously offered a loan worth 1 billion USD to rebuild Palu city.

A 7.5 magnitude earthquake and tsunami which occurred on September 28 last year killed more than 4,300 people and forced about 170,000 residents to evacuate. The disasters turned the ground into liquid mud and destroyed many areas in Central Sulawesi province./.
