Temporary and permanent construction housing programs from the government and NGOs are still ongoing. However, because the needs are still high, in the shelter sub-cluster meeting, the government conveyed the need for housing construction and the government still hoped for assistance from humanitarian agencies. However, government and NGOs project; have not included the inclusive aspects for the housing, even though the need for access is quite high because accessibility is also crucial.


YEU will continue housing project which is currently built 45 housing with accessible toilet. YEU will conduct an assessment to potential beneficiaries, to see the location and to ensure the legality of the land, since YEU will not buy land. After discussing and asking feedback from the beneficiaries, there will be an agreement with the beneficiaries. Beneficiaries and families will seek the handyman to build the house. The beneficiaries will help in the monitoring process during construction.
