LOMBOK. That afternoon a number of residents were seen queuing up to get clean water brought by Rumah Zakat volunteer in Kuripan Hamlet, Rempek Village, Gangga District, North Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara.

The rainy season that never came plus the earthquake that devastated the settlement added to their grief. Some residents said they relied distribution of water to fulfill it, wells and springs around their camps are no longer reliable.
According to one of Rumah Zakat Volunteers, Kamaludin, the need for clean water is very urgent because people have difficulty getting it. “The need for clean water is very urgent because the residents have difficulty getting it due to the dry season and the earthquake that caused disruption to the water channel, hopefully the water we bring can meet their water needs for a while “, he said
