Jakarta, MINA – The Indonesian government sent humanitarian assistance to Libya in the form of logistical support in response to the flood disaster that hit Libya last September.
The total value of humanitarian assistance was IDR 13.9 billion, sent early Monday via Soekarno Hatta Airport, Tangerang City, Banten.
The process of releasing humanitarian assistance was led by Plt. Deputy for Equal Regional Development and Disaster Management of the Coordinating Ministry for PMK, Sorni Easter Daeli representing the Coordinating Minister for PMK.
“The government sent 27 types of logistical assistance to Libya weighing more than 46 tons worth more than IDR 13.9 billion,” said Sorni.
“Seeing the large losses due to the impact of the flood, the Indonesian government as one of Libya’s friendly countries is taking part in alleviating the suffering of our brothers and sisters there,” he added.
“This assistance is one of the commitments from the Indonesian government through humanitarian values in disaster resilience. “Disaster management is a joint matter, it requires multi-party collaboration,” he continued.
He said that the flood disaster that occurred in Libya was also a reminder to Indonesia to always increase its preparedness to face disasters that could occur anywhere at any time.
“The events in Libya should be a lesson for us to continue increasing capacity to be ready to face increasingly real climate change,” he added. (T/RE1/P2)
