WONOGIRI. Indonesia’s national disaster management agency has declared that the majority of the country’s 34 provinces are experiencing drought caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon, warning of increased risk of fires.
Spokesperson Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told Anadolu Agency on Saturday that he predicts that the dry season will peak in September before giving way to the rainy season in November.
One of drought area is Gambarmanis Village, Pandem Residence, Pracimantoro District, Wonogiri. It has been hit by drought for months. Considering this emergency condition, Lottemart collaborated with RZ to distribute 10.000 liters of clean water here, Thursday (3/9).
“Alhamdulillah, the clean water assistance really helps us. We’d like just to say thank to RZ and Lottemart that have been willing to visit our village. Hopefully, Allah will gives His rewards,” a beneficiary said.
According to Muhammad Sarto, a volunteer from RZ, the distribution of clean will be implemented until the end of dry season. ***
