Dasan Beleq Hamlet is one of the hamlets in Lombok besides Sade which is famous for its ancestral cultural characteristics. They usually live in a small hut with bamboo and stone material without cement mixture. It is Unique isn’t it? With all its uniqueness, the most remote hamlet in Gumantar is inseparable from natural tantrums, 7.0 ritcher scale, Sunday night (5/8), about 35 houses were destroyed in the blink of an eye.
“That night,” said one resident, they were happy watching the Motor Gp. The happiness suddenly gone, the severe shock beneath their feet grew even worse, the peak of the house where they took their joy collapsed to hoard 7 people in it.
The terrible shock also destroyed the 3 public water wells that the residents had. Now if they want to go toilet, they have to walk down one kilometer. Clean water pipes that cannot be repaired add to the series of problems they face.
“Alhamdulillah Rumah Zakat will build Water Well in this hamlet, hopefully able to solve the problems of tDasan Beleq Hamlet community,” said Herlan, Volunteer of Rumah Zakat.
