Relief for Natural Disaster Victims In Indonesia

by Centre for Community Development Studies (PUSPEM)

Thanks to the world

Natural disasters that hit Indonesia since 2010 and 2011 are so numerous, among others;
Eruption of Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta, Flash Flood in Papua, Jakarta floods, volcanic eruption Soputan, eruption of Mount Marapi in Padang West Sumatra, and others.

This program assistance is to help displaced victims of natural disasters in Indonesia
This program assistance has been delivering food, beverages, clothing, blankets, milk for infants and another assistance to help the displaced victims of the eruption of Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta and Central Java.

Budget constraints in the program means that not all locations of natural disasters in Indonesia can be reached to help the displaced victims of natural disasters in several regions in Indonesia. Efforts that we do have leverage in order to help natural disasters victims in Indonesia.

But that effort would not work without budget support and assistance from donors.
Therefore we say a big thanks to GlobalGiving and donors for all your kind help and attention to this program, so this program can be implemented.

We hope to met again in other programmes.  Our commitment is to assist with sincerity the natural disasters victims in Indonesia.

May the Lord repay you all

Until now displaced by the eruption of Mount Merapi still survive in refugee barracks kosebrata Cangkringan Sleman Yogyakarta. Environmental conditions and their homes near the Mount Merapi which is badly damaged and very dangerous to life because it was very close to Mount Merapi, so that the local government prohibits its citizens to live close to Merapi volcano because of fears the mountain could erupt at any trim while.

The refugees now expected to settle in refugee barracks houses that had been prepared by the government. But the refugees do not know what should work, because the rice paddies, fields and gardens around Mount Merapi as a place of their work can no longer be used for gardening or farming.

Purwanto as local community leaders said that the refugees currently require skills training and business capital to create jobs.

Thank you very much we say to the donors who have channeled aid through GlobalGiving. we look forward to the donors to continue to provide assistance so that until the refugees can live independently without expecting more assistance.

We have received a budget of $ 3,449. This budget has been used for relief food and drinks for displaced victims of the eruption of Mount Merapi in Cangkringan Sleman Yogyakarta.
Sri one of the refugees said that food aid is very meaningful for refugees Mount Merapi as of late relief was rarely come, while we need to eat and drink every day, because we do not have a permanent job.
From the results of our interviews with refugees that actually want refugees life skills programs and venture capital, so that refugees can have a job anymore, because their houses, livestock, rice fields, gardens and their efforts before have all been destroyed by the eruption of Mount Merapi. Now the refugees have started a new life with a temporary home provided by the Government. While their house has been destroyed and is no longer to be occupied or repaired because the Government has banned for not staying about 20 kilometers from Mount Merapi.
In addition, the refugees also expect the existence of a free education for their children so their children also can get free education such as tutoring, TPA, computer learning, learn English and a place to play together in the barracks.
We hope to GlobalGiving donors to continue to provide assistance so that our lives can be better.
We extend our gratitude to the donors GlobalGiving for any help.
