ACT Started Construction of Integrated Comfortable Shelters for West Sulawesi Earthquake Refugees


Suara.com – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) started the construction of a Cozy Integrated Residential or Integrated Community Shelter (ICS) on Saturday (13/2/2021), for refugees affected by the West Sulawesi earthquake.

One month after the West Sulawesi earthquake, many survivors still remain in refugee tents. They lost their homes, which had moderate to severe damage.

In the refugee camp, their condition is apprehensive. Cold and hot air is easy to hit because the tents are improvised. This is what then makes the survivors inconvenient in connecting their lives, while they also don’t know when to move to a house that has not been renovated.

From here, integrated housing was immediately carried out. Marked by a groundbreaking ceremony by ACT and community leaders, ICS will stand in the field of Sendana Hamlet, Botteng Utara Village, Simboro District, Mamuju Regency. This construction is targeted to be completed in the next three weeks.

“We are targeting the construction to be completed within the next three weeks. There will be 96 ICS doors with 20 toilets, mosques, and other ICS-like facilities that ACT has built in various disaster locations, “explained Dede Abdul Rohman from the ICS construction team.

This integrated comfortable shelter will later replace the refugee tents that are less livable. Each door of the ICS will also only be occupied by one family. This method was also carried out to minimize the spread of Covid-19 which could easily occur if survivors were still displaced in groups without maintaining a distance.

In the vicinity of the ICS construction site, the majority of residents’ houses suffered moderate to severe damage due to earthquake shocks. Most of the houses, which are semi-permanent, make these buildings easy to collapse. This condition is also the reason for ACT to build comfortable integrated housing in the area.

Sutaryo from the ACT Program Team said that the ICS which was built in the earthquake-affected area in Mamuju was a joint effort to save the lives of the survivors who had been living in tents for one month. ICS will be complete with other supporting facilities to facilitate the lives of the residents who live there.

“Apart from ICS, ACT has also built a family shelter. The target of the first stage of comfortable housing for this family is preachers and teachers whose houses are badly damaged. And in the future, similar comfortable shelters will be built. We ask for prayers and support from generous people, “explained Sutaryo.
