ASMAT. Rumah Zakat volunteers finally succeeded in entering 2 districts in Asmat District which were affected by Bad and Measuring Nutrition Outbreak on Monday (23/01).
“We visited the Siret and Swator districts together with the local government,” said Fauzi, Volunteer Rumah Zakat Jayapura.
To reach the two districts, Volunteers have to travel quite long by using speedboat from the capital of Asmat, Agats.
“It takes about 4 hours to arrive in Siret District and 6 hours to arrive in the Swator District using a high-speed speedboat,” said Fauzi.
Volunteers visited Kampung Waganu 1 in Siret District and Kampung Jinak in Swator District. If you look at the physical condition of residents there, almost all do have nutritional problems. Therefore, Volunteers try to distribute the aid evenly to all citizens.
“For people with measles, almost all have been referred to hospitals in Agats by the local government,” said Fauzi. “In Waganu 1, we found one toddler who was exposed to measles and had not been referred,” he added.
This Tuesday (23/01), Volunteers will again distribute aid in other locations in Asmat District.
“In addition to food, we will also distribute clothes for children in Asmat,” said Fauzi.
