PALU. After the earthquake and tsunami that hit Palu, Central Sulawesi, residents had to evacuate to a number of posts established by police, military and government officials, there were also residents who evacuate in front of their homes.
However, until now a number of residents are still having difficulties to get basic materials and clean water.
Rumah Zakat team that had been at the disaster site set up a public kitchen in the Tatanga sub-district, Palu city. Every day, this public kitchen provides food for 13 families, with a varied menu.
“Tempe, tofu, carrots mixed with noodles, sometimes only one kind of food,” said Faisah.
Although the public kitchen has been established by Rumah Zakat, a number of needs such as basic necessities, clean water, milk for toddlers and pampers are still needed by refugees, given no shops and stalls that opened after the earthquake and tsunami.
“We need clean water, groceries, beds, blankets, milk, pampers for toddlers, because the stalls close”, Faisah said.
Some refugees hope for assistance, to cover the daily needs.
