Slowly returning to normal life
With help from the Indonesian Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), and our local Rotary partners, we were able to support 150 families with tents, mosquito nets, water filters and carriers.
Fatnizar used to work as a seamstress from her home, creating custom clothing. When the earthquake took her dwelling, it also closed her two-year-old business.
When we returned a week after we had provided the family with a tent, we found Fatnizar sewing under the awning of a ShelterBox tent.
The tent not only provided a more private and secure space for Fatnizar and her family, but also the opportunity for her to get back to work.
