Flooding in West Java causes devastation for families
Torrential rain since New Years Eve has resulted in the worst
flooding in Java since 2007. At least 60 people have died.
FMCH works with families in this area - we need funds to
provide basic provisions such as soap & water for children.
A total of 239 families comprising 225 children, 468 women and 424 men have been affected in the two villages of Kampung Ciputih Tonggoh, Harkatjaya and Kampung Parung Sapi, Kalongsawah. Their homes have been damaged, families have lost precious family keepsakes, basic foodstuff and clothing have been ruined by the flood water and many adults and children have been psychologically traumatised by these events.
Working in collaboration with another village, Kampung Dongeng Bogor', FMCH has conducted a needs assessment of the area and found the survivors are in need of the following items:
Mineral water, soap, towels, blankets, baby food and milk, nappies and school items such as writing books, pens, pencils, crayons etc. The assessment also showed that psychological counselling will be needed by families.
The amount we need to raise for the 239 families is:
US$2,000 or £1,523
This is equivalent to US$8.37 per family
or £ 6.37 per family.
We understand that January is a difficult month for many
of us - but please consider donating the cost of a drink
or a meal for these families?
They would really appreciate your help.
