Over the last few years we've been working with a community on the Ciliwung, Kampung Melayu Kecil. The community is very poor and very prone to flooding. Flooding is so normal that the whole kampung has two stories houses—the first floor for flooding the second floor for living.
Over the last two weeks there has been extensive flooding in their neighborhood reaching up to two meters—the community has been using boats to get around. Many of them depend on their gerobak jualan or bajaj for their livelihoods—but these too are now underwater.
Over the last 24 hours (this was one 15/1... we haven't had any updates since last nights rains) the flooding has risen to 5 meters filling even their second floors—this is the worst flooding they’ve seen since the 2007 floods. Most have evacuated (over 2,000) but many are still stuck in their houses—some are living on the fly over on Jl Casablanca and a mosque nearby. They are in desperate need of dry clothing.
Thursday 17 Jan 2013 Mega and I will go to deliver clothes.
But we will also go again this weekend--so if you can't get clothes to us today-- try again tomorrow.
NEXT: We will chip in to buy some blankets, feminine hygene pads and medicines
