Second Relief Trip to Mt. Merapi

Second Relief Trip to Mt. Merapi

A team of ten Family Care Indonesia volunteers were on hand to distributing a wide range of relief items for those affected by Mt. Merapi, in Central Java. Upon arrival FCI volunteers distributed an initial shipment of various food items, clothing and stationery. A second and larger shipment totally approximately 9 tons of material and includes 5 tons of rice, various food items, vitamins, condensed milk, water, eggs, cough medicine, protector masks and some clothing was also distributed. The target for distribution was the most affected areas that were receiving the least amount of aid.

For the children and young adults who were in need of encouragement and fun activities, FCI volunteers put together 1,500 packets each consisting of an exercise book, a coloring book, two pencils, a pencil sharpener, an eraser and a set of crayons. In addition we distributed an assortment of other stationery including – rulers, coloring pencil sets, etc. We also gave out balls for the children to play soccer and the young adults to play volleyball enabling them to have some fun exercise and a positive outlet for their energy.

Many thanks to our local friends and donors who made this very needed distribution possible.
