His condition was discovered when the Covid-19 social safety nets delivery team reported to the District Social Welfare Workers (TKSK).

At home, he can only sit on the floor and rely on his daughter to work for a living as a shopkeeper whose income is only Rp. 30,000 per day. Previously, there had not been any report from the local village regarding the situation of Mr. Warja. Now Mr. Warja can smile because he got a wheelchair.
