    Tens of thousands of people are still struggling to get their hands on basic goods a week after the earthquake and tsunami on Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island.

    Almost 71,000 people have become homeless, according to government figures. Other sources say the number is even higher, 300,000.

    Many are sleeping in the open, waiting for assistance.
