BANDUNG. Rumah Zakat Action is bringing volunteers to handle flash floods in Jati Endah Village, Cilengkrang District. Until this news was revealed, the Rumah Zakat Action Volunteer Team and the BPBD and other related parties handled it. At present, cleaning up the flood affected areas is being carried out. Rumah Zakat deployed 8 volunteers, distributing 50 ready-to-eat rice packs for officers and volunteers on duty at the site.
This disaster occurred because of heavy rains in the East Bandung area, precisely in the District of Cilengkrang starting at 22:00 last night causing the water flow of rivers in the region to rise and overflow into residential areas. About 12 houses were washed away by the flood, 2 were severely damaged, and 10 houses were moderately damaged. All victims have been evacuated. This flood also caused three deaths. One person was seriously injured, and two were lightly injured.
“The urgent need is now ready-to-eat food, blankets, lighting, and baby food,” said Rumah Zakat Action Field coordinator.
