WAMENA, Tuesday (08/10) – One of Rumah Zakat Evacuation Posts for Wamena refugees is at the Wamena TNI Kodim. At this post, Rumah Zakat cooperates with the TNI in managing the post, one of which is in providing public kitchens.
Since September 28, Rumah Zakat together with the TNI established a public kitchen to meet the food needs of the refugees. Every day this post prepares around 2,000 servings of food for the refugees.
“We prepare 3 meals, morning, afternoon and evening for Wamena refugees,” said Selasmawati, Volunteer of Rumah Zakat.
Tuesday afternoon (8/10), the public kitchen provided lunch for the refugees, to strengthen unity. Therefore, the refugees were gathered in the Kodim field to eat together.
“Even though they eat with simple menus and side dishes, they are very happy especially children,” Selasmawati added.
