(TNI Infrmation Center). Ten day after the Masamba Luwu Utara flood, Air Force CN-295 aircraft, currently redistributed humanitarian assistance. The distribution process was conducted twice. The first sortie carried 333 Coly weighing 4.361kg and the second sortie carried 36 coly weighing 2,431kg. Friday (07/24/2020).
The packages were distributed the day before to Masamba transported by using the Air Force aircraft Boeing 737 AI-7304 from Jakarta Halim Perdanakusuma Air Force base, which will be given to the Flood Disaster victims in North Luwu. After receiving the assistance, the Chairman of Air Force Wives Association (PIA Ardhya Garini) Regional II Air Force Operation Command II immediately handed over to the CN-295 A-2907 Flight Crews which will continue to fly to Bua Airport later in the day to distribute to the people affected by the flood.
This assistance is a form of concern from the unity of the wife’s association of the TNI, both from the Indonesian Army and the Navy and Air Force in order to ease the burden on our brothers and sisters affected by the flood disaster in North Luwu and its surroundings. The form of assistance provided was in the form of nine staples, such as rice, instant noodles, sardines, soy sauce, granulated sugar, milk for toddlers and other fast food, including clothing for both adults and children such as blankets, sarongs, towels and toddler diapers. All of this was done by the TNI wives associations as they were concerned and felt the pain and suffering experienced by the people affected by the flood.
Hopefully more and more organizations or community groups will reach out to provide assistance in accordance with their capacity. Such assistance will continue to be carried out by the wives of TNI Soldiers who are gathered in the Darma Pertiwi Organization in the form of funds raising both from the Soldiers' wives themselves and from various parties who are willing to spend a portion of their assets, to be distributed to those affected by the disaster, with the hope that the assistance will be able to meet their daily needs until the conditions of the affected areas back to normal.
