Cianjur Earthquake Reconstruction Fund

Request for support from representatives of Okiagaru Agri cooperative (Youtube Video)

Hello, my name is Agus Ali Nurdin, the representative of the Okigaru Cooperative
of Ciputri Village, Tunggilis Settlement, Pacet, Cianjur, West Java Province.

On Monday, November 20, 2022, an earthquake of magnitude 5.5 occurred in Cianjur,
West Java, Indonesia. Many buildings collapsed, and many people were killed and injured.
The full extent of the damage is still unknown, and frantic rescue efforts are underway
amidst continuing aftershocks. In Tunggilis village, where our cooperative is located, five people lost their lives.

Residents have evacuated their damaged homes and are living in temporary tents
set up on adjacent farmland to avoid damage from aftershocks.

The cooperative's usual agricultural training programs and organic vegetable
cultivation have been temporarily suspended to concentrate on local reconstruction activities.

In order to resume our training programs and vegetable cultivation, our first priority is to ensure the safety of our families, including children, and to create a sanitary environment to prevent secondary disasters such as illnesses.

Immediately after the disaster, the government began to set up evacuation
centers and distribute medical supplies, but much more support is still needed.
In our village alone, more than 500 people continue to live in tents.

In order to rebuild their homes with their own funds, they will be forced
to live in evacuation shelters for at least six months, and in some cases for as long as a year.

We need your broad support to restore normal life as soon as possible.

That is why we have established the "Financial Assistance Program for Rural Reconstruction".

We would like to ask for the cooperation of everyone throughout Indonesia and around the world.
