Humanitarian Ship Aid for South Kalimantan began to distribute


Suara.com – Humanitarian Ship Aid for South Kalimantan began to be distributed. On the first day, each of 20 tons of logistics was transported to four regions.

Previously, logistics were stored at the Wakaf Distribution Center (WDC) Warehouse, at the Martapura Baru Port Complex, Basirih Village, West Banjarmasin District, Banjarmasin City. Aid distribution started on Monday (8/2/2021).

Muhammad Rizki from the South Kalimantan ACT Program Team said that the Humanitarian Ship assistance was distributed by the four regional posts in four districts. First, Hulu Sungai Tengah Regency, which is an area that has been severely affected by flooding, followed by Tabalong Regency, Balangan Regency and Hulu Sungai Utara Regency.

“We are working with the Gasak community (Kalimantan Child Driver Association), who are willing to help us distribute them to the Hulu Sungai area,” said Rizki, at the WDC warehouse location.

The aid was transported using a pickup fleet. At least 56 units of the fleet were deployed for the distribution of logistics from the South Kalimantan Humanitarian Ship.

“Road access is limited, because there is a bridge that was cut off, which is currently in the process of being repaired, so there are capacity limitations both in terms of volume and vehicle load,” Rizki added.

Once distributed, the logistics will be stored in warehouses provided by the regional post teams in the four districts. Rizki said that each region would accommodate 20 tons of logistics.

“Which for the logistics will be shared by friends based on data collection. As a result of the data collection, friends in the regions have reported what flood survivors need at this time. For example in Barabai, Hulu Sungai Tengah Regency, they really need rice and clean water, “explained Rizki.

However, not all regions need logistical assistance with the same volume. Rizki gave an example, Hulu Sungai Utara Regency, which in this area does not need clean water, so the volume of clean water distributed is adjusted according to the needs in this area.

Moreover, in the current recovery period, the need for logistics such as groceries, medicines and others is urgently needed.
