"We did not bring our members to the field like the previous earthquake disaster in Lombok, Palu, and others due to the pandemic situation that is still going up to present. We only rely on the KAGAMA Regional Administrators (Pengda) and Branch Administrators (Pengcab)," he revealed.
The Central Committee of KAGAMA handed over the logistical needs such as foods, drinks, clothing, sanitation equipment, etc, to the three provinces. KAGAMA Regional Administrators (Pengda) and Branch Administrators (Pengcab) have distributed it to the disaster victims for each province.
"We currently remain to coordinate with related parties to draft other things that is still needed by the community," he explained.
