Indonesian Scouts build emergency kitchen, distribute food at disaster areas
Scout volunteers (Pramuka Peduli) formed the Pramuka Emergency Kitchen to assist affected communities in South Jakarta on 8 February 2021. A total of 25 Scouts facilitated the emergency kitchen by working in two shifts.
According to DKI Jakarta Scout Movement, Drs. Triadi Suparta, “Long before that, DKI Jakarta Scout Movement has prepared themselves. Scout volunteers are ready to help residents affected by the flood”.
The Pramuka Emergency Kitchen was donated by Indonesia’s National Zakat Agency (BAZNAS) to help residents affected by the disaster. The Kitchen provides mineral water, coffee, tea and instant noodles with the support of Scout leaders, local government institutions and the private sector. Moreover, a “Support House” was set up for Scout volunteers to provide assistance at the site.
