SIDENRENG RAPPANG (January 10, 2023) - The Ministry of Social Affairs through the Gau Mabaji Center Gowa distributed Social Rehabilitation Assistance (ATENSI) to flood victims in Panca Lautang District, Sidenreng Rappang Regency.


The floods caused by the rising water discharge of Lake Sidenreng submerged 169 houses in Panca Lautang District, 12 of which had to flee to relatives' homes. Head of Gau Mabaji Center Gowa, Subhan Kadir sent a team of 6 people to respond to this on January 8, 2023.


The Regent of Sidenreng Rappang, Dollah Mando, and the Head of the Resort Police, AKBP Erwin Syah were present during the process of handing over ATENSI program. Dollah appreciates the presence of the Ministry of Social Affairs which has responded quickly to the flood disaster experienced by its residents.


A total of 169 aid packages consisting of rice, canned fish, milk, biscuits, sugar, and tea were handed over. PMI of Sidenreng Rappang Regency assisted in the delivery of aid.


Not only that, the Directorate of Social Protection for Natural Disaster Victims of the Ministry of Social Affairs also sent two packages of water purification installations. This was to respond to the victims' complaints regarding the difficulty of access to clean water because the source of clean water in the form of wells was also flooded.


One of the Head of Panca Lutang District, and Head of Wette'e District, Hastina said "Very grateful, we have received attention from the Ministry of Social Affairs. Also, the presence of the regent and the chief of police will certainly boost the residents' morale here so that they remain enthusiastic in facing the disaster that is currently soaking and limiting their activities," said Hastina.


Gau Mabaji Center Gowa also collaborated with Sidenreng Rappang District Social Office and Billoka Health Center to set up a flood management post consisting of doctors, midwives, nurses, and pharmacists. So that health checks and medicines can be carried out, especially for victims who complain a lot about itching.
