XSProject has long focused on improving the education of the children and the health of our community members, the children and their parents. But in addition to education and health, we need to consider community safety as well.
Unfortunately, over the years Jakarta has had many cases of poor neighborhoods being suddenly destroyed by fires. The causes are many: faulty kerosene stoves, bad electrical wiring, careless disposal of cigarettes, or even arson. The Cirendeu community is especially vulnerable because much of the trash is highly flammable. When fires have broken out in the past, they have been extinguished with water. However, the water supply is not always reliable and can be far from the fire. So there is always the risk that fires cannot be extinguished before they spread.
For many years Mamat, one of the foreman, has wanted a fire extinguisher to protect his family and other families working for him. With your contributions we have been able to fulfill his wishes, and will also be distributing additional extinguishers to other foremen in the community. Mamat has taught others the important of community safety, especially in the place they are living in.
