"To meet food needs, we built three public kitchens in RW 03 Tlogosari, Genuk District, and the courtyard of North Semarang District which produce 2,000 servings of packaged rice," said Robben.


The Ministry of Social Affairs, through the Directorate of Social Protection for Natural Disaster Victims (PSKBA), synergizes with "Prof. Dr. Soeharso" Integrated Center Surakarta and "Antasena" Center Magelang sending ready-to-eat food assistance, needs for women and children, as well as mattresses and blankets which was immediately received by the Head of Genuksari District, Sunday (1/1).


Robben's visit was well received by Acting Mayor of Semarang Hevearita G. Rahayu, "Thank you for the assistance provided by the Ministry of Social Affairs, we can store these items so they can be used if things happen that are not planned (disaster)," she said.


The Ministry of Social Affairs was present with Tagana (disaster volunteers) and Peace Pioneers, from the first day, to help evacuate residents and distribute food to affected communities in Semarang and its surroundings.
