PROBOLINGGO. Pelan Kerrep Residence, Sumber Kare Village, is one of the driest areas in Probolinggo. It is located at dense-textured soils and the hills, so it cannot make a well there.
Therefore to fulfill their daily water needs, they must walk for kilometers through a steep road to a river outside their village.
To help them, RZ fielded some volunteers to distribute 14.072 liters of clean water on Thursday (3/9). There were 700 beneficiaries who benefit the assistance.
“From year to year, Sumber Kare Village always experiences drought but this year is the worst drought. To get water they are forced to walk for kilometers to another village in the early morning,” a volunteer, said.
Sumandi (90), local people, said “Alhamdulillah, it really helps us during this poor condition. Thanks to RZ and donors. Iskandar added that the distribution of clean will be implemented until the end of dry season. ***
