The earthquake that struck Central Sulawesi on 18 September 2018 was so devastating, destroying thousands of houses and killing more than 4,000 people. The transitional shelter is built to give a decent temporary place for the survivors as opposed to tents. It is built using a modular system, allowing a faster construction timeline. The construction materials are asbestos-free, waterproof, also fireproof and can be reused to build a permanent house in the future.
“Thank God, you have built a temporary shelter for me,” said Mrs. Nasria, one of the home partner receiving the transitional shelter. Being 65 years old and lives alone is not easy for her, especially after the earthquake. The disaster destroyed all of her properties. But luckily it never took away her spirit. She continues living by teaching Qur’an in Al-Khairat school and plants chili. Indesso donated the construction of six transitional shelters in total, each with 14.5 m2 area. Through this donation, Indesso hopes to give a better life to those in needs.
