PANDEGLANG (November 2, 2019) - The Ministry of Social Affairs distributed the second phase of social life assistance to 1,026 families affected by the Sunda Strait tsunami disaster in Pandeglang Regency. Jadup was symbolically handed over to ten of them.

There are activities dealing with Tagana Goes to School as well", said Harry.
